My favorite authors evolved as time goes by. When I was younger, I was an avid reader of Nancy Drew and I really admired Caroline Kenee. I also read Sidney Sheldon and Danielle Steel books. After that, I was into John Grisham books like The Chamber and A Time to Kill. When I was in college, I got curious about Da Vinci code and started reading books authored by Dan Brown. I also like Paulo Coelho's works especially the book entitled, By the River Piedra, I Sat Down and Wept. For now, I read varied books that interest me.

I enjoyed reading Mark Twain. Currently I like the books by Depak Chopra. I find them to be thought provoking.

Julie Garwood for the romance novels... Bob Ong among Pinoy Authors. He rocks!

I really like Nicholis Sparks but lately my new favorite is Stephanie Meyer. She has a series of books... Twilight, New Moon and Eclipse. It is about a girl who falls in love with a Vampire, it sounds weird but so good. Great romance, good story and awesome writer. The movie comes out in December.

i don't think i have an all-time favorite author. It just varies. But i do have a top three choice. those authors on my watchlist. whose new realeases falls into my must-have books. they are (1) dan brown (2) og mandino (3) mitch albom. there are alot of good authors nowadays. it's just hard to find a writer wo tells a story as if he/she were telling YOUR story. someone who really connects to the lives of the readers.

My favorite author, by far, is Chuck Palahniuk. Not only was Fight Club one of the best books I've ever read, but so were every single other I've read by him. I loved Rant and Choke and Invisible Monsters especially. He's one of the only authors that has almost all of his books of my favorite books list in my head. I love his writing style, as well as his dialog. It seems so genuine and realistic, because people are just that messed up in real life.

I like Jodi Picoult as a favorite. She tends to write straight from the heart, amid twists and turns. Most of the endings of her books leave you stunned. heh True to life.. etc I really enjoy her reads. My Sister's Keeper was the first book of hers I read that hooked me. My sister is the one who lent me the book and since then.. I've been hooked..

My favorite authors would have to be Mitch Albom, Judy Blume and Nicholas Sparks. I have read most of Albom's works such as Tuesdays with Morrie and it really inspired me with regards to my life. Judy Blume's writing hits the soft spot in the heart of many people especially children and pre-teens. I liked her work, referring to As Long As We're Together and Here's To You, Rachel Robinson. On the other hand, Nicholas Sparks writing is realistically romantic - I have just started reading Message In A Bottle and the first few pages were good. Although I have seen a movie inspired by his book which title was A Walk to Remember and I could say it's the second best I've loved from all the movies I have seen.

Ayn Rand, hands down, for fiction and for non-fiction. Her philosophy is the one I've held all my life and it feels good to find an author who expresses your views so articulately. (Objectivism)
