I have to say I don’t think I have any ONE favorite author, but probably have favorites for different genres. I love Jude Deveraux for her amazing time travel and historical novels. I haven’t read anyone yet who I like better for those particular books. I like Francis Ray for her general romance. Although over the years they seem to get repetitive, she generally tells a good story.
I like Stephenie Meyer simply because she created my most favorite fictional character ever…Jacob Black. Her writing made me love Jacob as if he were my very own, and I don’t think any other author has achieved that with me. There are plenty characters I love…but none like Jacob, and she’s great at creating atmosphere. I love J.K. Rowling for Harry Potter, I think that has to be my most favorite series ever. I mean just an amazing cast of characters and the most amazing settings ever. I wanted to be with Harry at Hogwarts and the Weaseleys house.
And I love Beverly Jenkins because she writes some awesome black historical romance novels. There aren’t too many authors out there writing black historical fiction and she does it so elegantly. There is something special and different about all of these authors that always impress me. So I can’t pick any one author, but several for different reasons.
What about you all, who are your favorite authors and why?
