love to read, so I have many favorite authors depending on genres. I have to admit I am a big Robert Ludlum fan myself, and my fave among his works would be the Bourne trilogy. Right now, my current addiction is PNR or paranormal romance. In that genre, my favorite authors would include JR Ward, Christine Feehan, Kresley Cole, Naline Singh, Karen Marie Moning, and Laurell K. Hamilton. I'm sure there are more than i can mention if I really think about it.

I happened to read a couple of Anita Blake's by Laurell.K.Hamilton. Frankly i didnt like it much...There is too much fantasy with super natural happenings and magic and that sort of stuff, not to my liking..

Well, LKH's Anita Blake books are classified as urban fantasy. So if fantasy is not your thing, then it will not be to your liking.

Hi Kiran, besides all the authors you have listed, I read anything and everything that i can lay my hands upon.I love both fiction and non fiction and buy up anything when I am travelling.I read religious books too to gain knowledge and to get some insight into what is written and how it is interpreted by the leaders!

Hi Kiran, my favorite authors are Ed McBain, Jeffrey Deaver, Agatha Christie, Ruth Rendell, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Anne Perry and a few more. I enjoy reading crime and horror novels, and the latest book I read is The Killing Doll by Ruth Rendell. An interesting book - a psychological thriller !

Hi :) I too am a great great fan of Agatha Christie, and all the other authors that you mentioned, and i have read most of Agatha Christie's novels. Have you read novels by P.D.James? they are quite good.I have not yet read The Killing Dolls, but now that you mention it i will definitely look it up.
