Harper Lee..... Better known for writing "To kill a Mockingbird". Fabulous book and movie.
Hard to pick a favorite but favorite all time writer would have to be Mark Twain.
Jean Rhys is the cleverest authoress. I love the way she writes and often look at her work, just to remind myself how good you can get.
It is so difficult to pick a favorite author. My favorite books are Fountainhead and Anna Karenina, so I'd have to say my favorite authors are Ayn Rand and Leo Tolstoy... but then there are the Bronte sisters... I could never choose
Ernest Hemingway, who damned the torpedoes, and told more story by what he left out than by what he included. He respected his readers and let them fill in the gaps from their own experiences. He denied his use of terseness, yet he'd been shaped by so many years as a foreign correspondent and had learned how to manage his wordcount.
Mary Roberts Rinehart. She wrote mysteries with a romantic touch, but it wasn't gross romantic. Maybe she'd be catagorized as a cosy mystery writer now.
I guess you will never hear the following name ever again in this question's answers: Lőrincz L. László aka Leslie L. Lawrence.
He is a fantastic writer, I can't wait for his books since I was 14 years old!
I can recommend reading him to anyone who loves science fiction.

Definitely Mark Twain. I love the way he writes and paints his word pictures. I love the time period that he writes about. And, I especially like his humor.
My favourite author is Isaac Assimov. I started reading his science fiction books in my teens and I still enjoy them now. It's amazing how his books haven't aged that much with time.
Very difficult to choose. I love Donna Tarrt's work and I hope she writes another novel soon, as 'A Secret History' is one of my very favourite reads. I love the crime writer Peter James, not least of all because he writes about Brighton in Sussex which is the city close to my home town. I've met him a few times, and I like the fact that he loves communicating to his fans all the time, through his blog, twitter, facebook and meeting his fans at talks and signings.
Cinda Williams Chima. I think I've only met one other person who has heard of her or her work, but I am a huge fan - especially of her Heir series. Anyone who likes fantasy that's (as I define it) a little dark but a little urban, please read!! She has amazing characters and I love how her series are almost entirely different stories but are tied together by a strong thread and you occasionally see the pre-existing characters. It makes each book extremely interesting and you don't have a moderately-tweaked reworking of the same plot.
Probably Gore Vidal--who just died. He subject was clear and he was a great literary master.

Does your writing style remind you of another author's. Not in anyway, implying plagerism, just asking.

TOP TEN BEST BOOKS (yet...)If you are a ridiculous, I mean...er, avid reader like myself, then you will read just about anything. I have a love of so many authors, genres and subjects, but there are always a few that stay with me for many years. Sometimes it is difficult to find other voracious...
