Probably seems cliche, but Edgar Allen Poe.

What author would I most like to sit down and have a beer with? And if I don't drink......have lunch with?

This question is actually an easy one for me. I would really like to sit down and have a drink, and or lunch, with Rhonda Dennis. I really enjoyed going to a book signing she was at in Louisiana at the local library.

I in the future hope that I am lucky enough to attend another of her book signings in the future.

F. Scott Fitzgerald for sure (he'd be required to bring Zelda)... that man would've been a good time. And I would die to get him good and toasty and hear all of the juicy dirt he had on Hemingway, Stein, and the other writers, artists, and socialites of the time.

I totally get that this is a "typical" answer, but I'm sticking to my guns on this one.

Definitely Stephen King, because I have always wondered if he's kind of... weird? I mean that in a good way lol but I mean does he have that morbid sense of humor/aesthetic all the time or is that simply something that's only in his writing? I'd love to know what his every day personality around his family is like.

Stephen King, Harlen Coben, Dan Brown, and Jodi Piccoult.
The amount of research these authors do in their fiction makes me feel like I'm in the story every time, except for Stephen King; that syntax makes me forget there is a real world outside. :techie-studyingbrown:

I would love to have a beer with Stephen King. I have heard that he has dreams or nightmares that are the stories he writes. I too have nightmares that are like watching a movie but I am not a writer so cant put into words what I saw in my dreams I would like to know how he began writing his dreams & if the entire book comes from the dream or does he embellish it. I think it would be a great time taking to Mr. King about his books!

Today I'd relish the chance to sit and sip wine with Angela Thomas and Nicola Yoon. The former whose young adult novel, "The Hate You Give" keeps hitting #1 on The New York Times Young Adult Bestsellers list for over 42 weeks now and counting. The latter had two novels on the Times Young Adult bestsellers list with one, "Everything, Everything," adapted as a film, which appeared in theaters in May 2017 and the second novel "The Sun is Also a Star" set to hit the big screen in the near future with the talented actress Yara Shahidi, of Freeform channels new series, "Grownish" a spinoff of ABC's hit series "Blackish," cast to portray the female lead character.

I'm riding heavy with the transcendentalists right now, so Ralph Waldo Emerson rather than Henry David Thoreau because Emerson seems more chill. Thoreau would try to convince me to live in the woods the whole time :lol:

I think it would be great to have a beer with Mark Tufo. He's the author of the Zombie Fallout series. He's down to earth, funny, sarcastic and awesome. Plus, because of his writing and social media, I happen to know he loves beer.
