Hi, my top three are all women. I use to read books by men, but then realised that the women were ten times better! lol!
1. Diana Gabaldon. She has written at least 8 books in the series Outlander, a time travelling adventure that starts in the 1940s, a nurse goes through the Stones, like Stonehenge and arrives back in the 1700's at the time of the Scottish war with England at Culloden. The characters are so real everybody is in love with Jamie Fraser the main character.
2. Kresley cole. She has written at least 13 books of vampires, witches warlocks demons and so on. They are full of adventure, adult content! and very sexy! fantastic!
3. Richelle Mead. Just discovered her, her books have humor, vamps and succubus, the main character is working for hell, but she is very funny! well worth reading.
