    Ooh, I love Louise Erdrich, cricketeen. I read Tracks for a course on Magical Realism in college and was enthralled with it. SUCH a good book. I've been meaning to read more by her ever since. Which books do you like best?

    I have to admit that I have just recently discovered her. I adored the Master Butcher's Singing Club.

    After much thought (but not really), I am sure that Brian Jacques is my favorite author. I just love his Redwall series. I also can't help but like his books about The Flying Dutchman. It's incredible.

    Apart from him, I love reading Amy Tan, Thomas Hardy, and Maxine Hong Kingston. I'm also growing quite accustomed to the style of Elizabeth Kostova, even though I've only read The Historian.

    I Love JK Rowling!

    Stephenie Meyer. Michael Crichton. Amy Tan. EM Foster. C.S. Lewis. JR Tolkien. Jane Austin. Stephen King. Dr. Seuss. James Patterson is becoming a fave. I know there is more but that is a few.

    Being a total fantasy nut, my favorite authors are Anne McCaffery (i've read, and OWN every single one of her Dragon Riders of Pern books), Piers Anthony and Robert Asprin. I also adore Esther M. Friesner simply for the Chicks in Chainmail anthologies she does.

    My nose is generally found in non-fiction books but these authors I religiously reserve their newest book at the library:
    Minette Walters (Arguably the best mystery writer on the planet!)
    Gabriel Garcia Marquez (latin mysticism) (Not meant for the big screen!)
    Christopher Buckley (humour) (Yes, that Buckley!)
