    I would talk to James Patterson because he's the Author who inspired me to write the way I do. Or Edgar Allen Poe... I love his poetry.

    Charles Darwin. I have visited his house in Kent and am in awe that he came up with his theory with virtually no scientific equipment and very little theory to start from. An Incredible intellect.

    Most likely Philippa Gregory or J.K. Rowling. Both of them have written amazing novels, the only difference is that Gregory writes historical fiction and Rowling writes fantasy fiction. They are my biggest inspirations when it comes to writing. I hope to one day publish something half as amazing as their work. Even a quarter would do. smile

    I think I would enjoy Mark Twain's company.

    I would definitely talk to Shakespeare because he is the one who paves the ways of drama writing for others.

    I would want to speak with C.S. Lewis. One of his short books, Weight of Glory offers my favorite quote,

    "We want something else which can hardly be put into words-- to be united with the beauty we see, to pass into it, to receive it into ourselves, to bathe in it, to become part of it... Some day, God willing, we shall get in."

    He puts into words the alluring moments in nature that call us to a glory beyond ourselves.

    I think it would be pretty cool to meet the guys who wrote the Bible and Poe and Twain. Dante and Samuel Taylor Coleridge... He wrote The Rime Of The Ancient Mariner. I love that book.

    I have quite a wide span in reading so this is a hard choice between authors - which makes me go for two, one at each extreme perhaps. My choice would be Jane Austen and Bram Stoker - both together at a bar lunch would be fascinating!

    Charlotte Bronte and Sue Townsend.  Just visited Haworth (Charlotte's home village) in the Summer and was really inspired by the parsonage where she lived.  Sue Townsend writes all of the Adrian Mole novels and I howl with laughter when I read them, I'd love to meet her.
