JK Rowling. I would love to discuss her views on the tough topics. She is refreshingly down to earth.

I'd like to have a pint of stout with JRR Tolkien. If he's not available, definitely GK Chesterton. :D

While Grisham, King, and Sparks are my greatest writing influences and mentors, I would have to say probably John Grisham because we have 'the legal field' in common and he can write well in different genres. I could probably learn something from him if we spent an afternoon lunch with a Long Island Iced Tea together. But I have been learning from all three all of these guys for well over twenty years.

Stephen King. I wouldn't want to talk about writing or books at all though; he just seems like a really cool, liberal dude who has a million anecdotes up his sleeve

Kara Starr.. Does anyone knew about her? I love her books! Although, I wasn't able to complete the hard copy of it. I hope I can find it here.

I prefer reading books written in century I live in, but I definitely want to have a beer with one of ancient philosophers. Especially with some celtic philosophers, 'cause they're not at all as popular as greek philosophers, so it's gonna be even more interesting!

Agreed! I'd love to know all the amazing ideas bouncing around in his brain!

Chuck Palahnuik, but I'd be a bit scared that he may be as crazy in real life as his books make out!
True! I probably would have to make an escape plan for the bar if he ends ups being crazy.

Yes, yes, yes! I just want to sit and shoot the **** (probably not allowed to cuss on here?!) with that man! I have a feeling sitting down with him would be like sitting with an old friend-- he'd probably be super mellow and not even act like one of the highest-paid authors in the world. Just like two old friends, shooting the BREEZE!

Although, I forgot to mention how I would act--- I would be trying really hard to play cool. At least for the first hour or so :)
