Oh, Rainbow!!!!!! Terry Pratchett is my second favorite author! I didn't know that you read his books! Discworld is definitely one of the best series out there. Pratchett really does amazing things for the fantasy/comedy genre, doesn't he? Now if you're a fan of the Hitchhiker's Guide series, as well, we could really have some serious talking to do, lol! ^_~

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Wally Lamb! He's written three books and for several years there has been a promise of a forth that I am anxiously awaiting. People that know of him will be most familiar with his second book, She's Come Undone. His second book, This Much I Know Is True, was my favorite of his fiction books but the non fictional, I Couldn't Keep It To Myself" written by Wally and the women of York Correctional Institute really changed the way I look at things. I highly recomend all three.

Eleven Minutes - by Paolo Coelho
Mine area Norae Roberts for her strong women characters, Nicholas Sparks for his sensitivity and Paolo Coelho for his poetic nature.

I am really stuck on Kathy Reichs right now. She has a whole series of books out on forensic anthorpology. She is also the producer or director on the TV show Bones. I really enjoy that show as well. It is somewhat similar to the books.

I have such a love of everything British that even my favorite authors are British, and it wasn't like I was going out of my way to search out British books back when I was a kid - I just knew what I loved, and I *loved* Douglas Adams' Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy series. He is my favorite author by far, and the above mentioned series will always be my favorite books of all time. I'm also quite partial to anything else that he's written - but especially those books. My second favorite author is Terry Pratchett. Douglas' Adams wrote sci-fi/comedy. Terry Pratchett does the same thing for fantasy/comedy. They both have the greatest, dry, British sense of humor. I just love the Brit's sense of humor! ^_^

I like James Patterson, John Grisham, Tom Clancy. But my favorite authors are Stephen King and Dean Koontz. Dean Koontz' books keep me up late at night when I should be sleeping because they are so intense that I can barely put the book down! I received one of his books a few years ago as a gift and have loved his writings ever since. I have a new one waiting to read right now after I finish the current book that I am reading. If you like suspense, you should give Koontz a try if you haven't already.

Van Dine, Ed McBain, Jeffrey Deaver, Michael Connelly, Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child, Matthew Reilly, Patricia Cornwell, etc..I stopped reading Cornwell's books after Black Notice though. Of the romantic novels I like the works of Barbara Cartland, Nicholas Sparks, Janet Dailey.
