is your favorite author?
I like Alice Hoffman.
It changes a lot - right now I'm veering between Angela Carter and Fyodor Dostoevsky.
James Herriot -- he wrote the "All Creatures Great and Small" books.
I love John Irving, Barbara Kingsolver and Neil Gaimen.
John Saul, also like Beverly Lewis a lot
I love the book "One". It's the only one of his books I have read, but I just love it so much. My other favourite is J.R.R Tolkein because I love "The Lord Of The Rings".
I can't pick

Of late I appreciate the care and craft that John Irving puts into his work. Short stories by Alice Munro and TC Boyle als orange up there.
I've been reading a lot of Vonnegut lately but I think my favorite is still Twain.
My favorite author is Jennifer Roberson. She wrote the Del and Tiger series and the Chronicles of the Cheysuli series. Her characters are interesting - they grow throughout the story. The worlds she creates capture my interest and the plots of the stories are unpredictable without being unbelievable.
I pick my reading according to my mood.
All time, no contest, it is Homer. My favorite current author is Terry Goodkind. Special props go out to J.D. Sallinger, Tolkien, Herodotus, Plutarch, Ceaser, and Arrian. Also, Virgil is a pretty hep cat too.
Terry Pratchett is the author who's books I own most of... (nearly all of them in fact). I also re-read his books over and over again. I don't know if he'd count as my favourite though. There are lots of books that are the only one the author wrote, or the only one of theirs I've read, which I love to bits... Neil Gaiman, James Bibby, Jane Austen, Stella Gibbons... My favourite also tends to change depending on what I've been reading recently. I suppose I don't really have a particular favourite - will I don't know do?
Probably Philip Pullman, but there are so many I love!
