I have to admit that I have stuck to certain authors - Ed McBain, Lawrence Sanders, Joy Fielding, etc. But recently I have taken to reading books of authors I haven't read before and am glad I did. I think sticking to one author kind of limits you. It is good to read a variety of authors and genres.

I have read only 'Seventh scroll' by Wilbur Smith, and I liked it. I haven't one favourite writer, there are so many I like. Perhaps this time I list my favourite authors of detective stories - Agatha Christie, Dorothy L. Sayers, Rex Stout, Ellis Peters, D. Francis, Ngaio Marsh... as I said, there are many.

Mine is Oscar Wilde. I've read everything and I think he is the most sharp mind of all times.

I have two favorite authors, Ursula K. LeGuin and Frank Herbert. Both are writers of science-fiction and premier in their jandra. Ursula has wowed readers with her Earthsea series and other amazing novels such as the "Left Hand of Darkness". Frank Herbert is father and author of the critically acclaimed Dune series, that has now been carried on by his son. Both writers truly have a gift with words in bringing these worlds they write about to life. It's that right there that demands my adoration of their writing. Good stuff.

daughter's book cover - 14 yr old has written a book and am quite proud of her.  Glad that all our homeschooling hard work has given her the ability to possibly become a great writer and thus support herself.
Would have to say right now it is my daughter. Pen name Isador Kaeven, has written her first book about to be published at the first of the year. Called The Dark Tides Between Light and Shadows. 150+ pages and her first in a series. Will be found at your local stores, if not ask them about it. Lulu.com is where you can go and get results. It is considered a paranoral or sci fi thriller. Can't wait to read it myself!
