JK Rowling probably because I can read Harry Potter over and over again.

My favorite is F. Scott Fizgerald with Hemingway coming in at a close second.  Their use of metaphors and similes makes me use my mind more as I am rolling through their stories.  I love the era of the twenties.  Voltaire was good at this as well and I liked the eroticism that was incinuated into everything that he wrote.  For more, quick, schlocky reading I can dig into a John Grisham, Stephen King or Jeffrey Archer book...usually good when I am on a flight that goes more than three hours.

I don't think that I could pick an all-time favorite writer. There are so many writers that my household has every book that they've ever written. :) Stephen King, James Patterson, Christine Feehan, Lynn Kurland, Matthew Reilly, Douglas Preston/Lincoln Child....etc.


Right now I'm leaning towards the paranormal (werewolves, vampires, witches, fairies) and lately people have been bugging me to read the Twilight series especially since I absolutely LOVED The Host. I think that's going to be close to the top of my list of things to read next.

It is a tie between Stephen King and Dean Koontz

Same for me.  Love them both.
