5 thoughts on “Who Is Your Favorite Author?”

  1. I can’t say that I have a single favorite author, but, I am reading The Bregdan Chronicles by Ginny Dye right now and really enjoy her writing. I’m fond of Georgette Heyer, Rhys Bowen, Philippa Gregory and I’ve really liked Alan Bradley’s Flavia de Luce series.

  2. I’ve long been a fan of author Isaac Asimov.

    When I was a teen, his science fiction novels captured my imagination. His vision of the future was often awe-inspiring, from ubiquitous robot helpers (with Asimov’s Three Laws of Robotics) to a galaxy-spanning human empire.

    As I got older, I became more interested in his science essays and books. They have helped me to understand the way in which science progresses. He combines clear explanations with helpful real-world comparisons that I find helps me to grasp and remember ideas and concepts.

    Now I find myself drawn to his other non-fiction work, like annotated works devoted to the Bible or to Shakespeare’s writing, or histories of western civilization. I find that we share some interests, like the music of Tom Lehrer or the writing of P.G. Wodehouse.

    Plus with hundreds of published works, there’s no danger of running out of books of his to read!

  3. My overall favorite (if I have to narrow it down to one) would be Maya Angelou. If everyone had a compassionate and loving heart like Maya, this world would be a much more peaceful place. I love her poems, literature and wise quotes that often become life changing mottos for me. She took tragedy and negative experiences and turned them into life lessons with a positive spin on them. I had a chance to see her speak at Drake University not too long before she passed away. She is just so awe inspiring and uplifting.
