I would want to share a cold glass of lemonade with Charlaine Harris.

Stephen King-after having a few drinks I would go home and hide under my bed... in a good way!

Alexander Dumas. He had the most fascinating history and I love the wit he put in his works.

John Grisham... Cause he seems to know everything about being tired of being a law student or a lawyer and I can totally relate.

And then Patricia Cornwell because I think she might be just as captivating as her novels.

I would love have had a drink with Ray Bradbury. His use of metaphor and cadence would make for interesting listening. Tolken a brilliant scholar and creative savant would be fascinating to share a brew with. I could list a host more while I cannot pick any as tops they all are amazing.

Zakes Mda. He's a South African writer and his books are mostly Historical Fiction. He has brought South African history to life for me! Hence I'd definitly have a drink with him, perhaps not a beer, but a drink! :D

I immediately thought Edgar Allan Poe, but after thinking about it more, I would love to sit down with Agatha Christie. Her Miss Marple, Poirot, and other mysteries are so well written and creative that I would love to know where she got her inspiration from and even how she thinks. I imagine her to be fun to be around, but I can, also, imagine her not being much of a people person.

That would be George R. R. Martin, and while at it 'steal' some wisdom.

Shakespeare. Then I can get the chance to ask him what the hell was going on in his head whenever he wrote a piece.
Most times, I fall flat on my face. But never do I remain on the floor; I rise again.

Don't drink alcohol but wouldn't mind a cup of water with any of my favorite authors. I guess if I could speak Japanese more, it'd be Togashi so I could ask about Hunter X Hunter's ending

There are a few, but at the moment, I would definitely have a glass of cabernet with Margaret Atwood.
