Just curious to see people's authors they liked :)

As for me I was obsessed with Ellen Hopkins. I loved her writing style so much and how she set up the words on the paper

I loved Geoffrey Trease (Cue for Treason) until junior year when I discovered Ray Bradbury and loved him until I discovered Jane Austen in senior year. I still like them all and having gone through 4 years of university studying English Lit, I found about a dozen other authors who I love. But, I'll admit it, I still have a soft spot for Jane Austen- it's my comfort reading.
When I want deep- it's Timothy Findley, when I want funny, it's Angela Carter, when I want politically diverse, it's Edna O'Brien, when I want satire- Jonathan Swift. But Jane Austen is still like sinking into a warm bath after a stressful day.

I was pretty varied in high school. I loved Douglas Adams (still do), Stephen King and John Saul, Jude Deveraux, V. C. Andrews, and Piers Anthony.

In high school my favorite author was Neil Gaiman. From Coraline to the Sandman comic books, I literally could NOT get enough.

Mine was L.J. Smith. I was really into paranormal romance back then and to be honest i still am. Back when i was in high school thou that was all i read and i was a die heart fan of PR. I still read paranormal but i'm not as obsessives about it.

I read so much so fast in high school I don't even remember who my favorite author was. I know that I really liked Libba Bray at one point, as well as Richelle Mead, Ellen Hopkins, and Neal Shusterman.

Mary Steward, who recently passed away. I read everything I could get my hands on by her. I especially got into the Merlin series.

V. C. Andrews and Dean Koontz were my favorite in high school. It seemed I just could not get enough of them. I also liked reading foreign novels by various authors.
