Who is Your Favorite Author?


I have so many favorite authors!

I can’t just pick one because certain types of books from differing genres on my top list for multiple reasons. Plus I have quite the eclectic taste when it comes to books.

Some authors I’m still working my way through their collections, having read maybe one or two stories that became gems for me, but not necessarily knowing if the author is my absolute favorite yet. I’m also rereading classics on occasion, so I’m revisiting last few century authors that are also making their way on my list.

That said, here are some of my favorite authors and some of the books I’ve read by them.

Authors who I both adore for both their stories and their writing style.

M.C. Beaton

I’m working through the Agatha Raisin series, as audiobooks, hilarious as all could be. The stories are funny and spot on in adventure and satire. The writing is with a punch.

Agatha Raisin and the Deadly Dance, #15, is my current read.

C.S. Lewis

Such words of wisdom, both in topic and writing depth. Some of his mostly widely known classics are rereads for me, some I’m working my way through to ones I haven’t read.

J.D. Barker

Such fun adventure stories, with plot lines that have interesting twists and pacing that captivate me at every turn of the page. His writing is stunningly beautiful.

Christopher Moore

His stories are so outlandish and funny. His writing is easy to get into and clever at every whim.

Island of the Sequined Love Nun (especially in audiobook), is my favorite one.

James A. Michener

I learn so much from his books.

They’re typically historical fiction, which is admittedly, not always my favorite type of genre because if I don’t know the subject matter well enough to be able to differentiate or if I think I’ll be confusing real events with fantasy, I steer clear. But with Michener, his stories are both seamless yet distinguishable in some way to where I devour them with satisfying ease.

Hawaii is my favorite so far.

Hans Christian Andersen

The stories are rich, the writing is remarkable. Of Hans Christian Andersen, some my favorite fairy tale is The Fir Tree.

Other Authors I Adore

Toni Morrison, Stephen King, Gabriel García Márquez, John Scalzi, and Sarah Addison Allen.

Their stories and writings are classic and excellent.

How about you, who is your favorite author and why?
