    Neville Goddard. He clearly explained that imagination creates reality. By relaxing and visualizing, a person can change anything in life.

      I had never heard of Neville Goddard before but I liked what you had to say about the man so I looked him up and was impressed. I just bookmarked a lecture by him entitled: Thinking  Fourth-Dimensionally. I can see why you chose him as a favorite.

    Jeaniene Frost. I love her characters. They seem real and are copies of my relationship with my partner. I'm addicted to how she makes them real, pulls me into the story, and I love the paranormal romance world.

    I would have to say Edgar Allen Poe, when I was in elementary school I was first introduced to him. I think that I was in second grade when my teacher read the poem " The Raven " to me for the first time. I was hooked, I loved the way that he used words to tell a story. From that point on reading and writing became a major part of my life.

    My favorite author is R.A. Salvatore because he created the most interesting hero who can also kick butt: Drizzt Do'Urden.

    My favorite author is C.S. Lewis. He wrote such amazing and intelligent works that are still so thought provoking, powerful, and absolutely wonderful to read. Even today they are still making movies based on his books and I have learned so much from reading them. Not just The Chronicles of Narnia, but also The Screwtape Letters and The Great Divorce.

    I have many authors that I enjoy, however my favourite is Stephen King..his ways of taking the everyday mondane and adding twists, where you never know what to expect and when it will happen. He has written under several pen names, so there are many stories out there, but he has a style that is unmistaken...and he stays true to his writes...

      You are so right, Stephen King is an attention grabber. So many of us associate him with the movies that we/I forget about the great books that he has written.

      I also love to read King's work. I did not know that he used aliases. This is interesting. What are those other pen names? If the ones making the movies from his writings would spend a little more money and effort in doing so, they would be great!

      xanzacow..King used several names in the late 70/80, he was experimenting to see if under other names his writings would be as successful. Names Richard Bachman 7 novels / Joel Hill often met  characters by King. The Thinner/Rage,The running man..smile

    Hello xanzacow. Let me state I am in a weird mood today. So, having offered a disclaimer the answer is a toss up between kj Force and loveofnight, now. However it certainly will change when I slide on over to the next question seeking answers.

    The why for 'kj' is I learned something I did not before. I did not know Stephen King authored with additional pen names. Also, I appreciate her appreciation and hint of admiration for King's style. And, I am a fan of John Force of NHRA fame. I keep wondering if the two are related. Hence, a favorite through association within this mind anyway.

    The why with 'loveofnight is the parallels of inference with the pen name used for hubpages and the discovery of reading and writing 'with' Poe. A fan of Poe and introduced near to the same age with his works an empathic aura ensued. A sense of likeness for the awe of Poe created feelings of similarity. Hence, a favorite, again, through association.

    Tim

    Gore Vidal was my favorite author, because his subjects were of great interest to me and he knew so much of what he was talking about. I also enjoyed his writing style.

    Hi!

    I would have to say that Agatha Christie is my favorite author. She writes brilliantly when it comes to the crime scenes. It's detailed, but not too detailed that the reader loses sight of the story. I also like how she describes her characters so clearly that her characters seemingly come to life. My favorite mystery, by the way, is "Murder on the Orient Exrpess."

    ı do not want to distinguish agatha christia from stephan king,but ıf ı have to select one of them , certainly,Agatha Christie is the first in my heart . Why? every reader wants himself and herself in the story as if we were in side the story with all actions and one book must be ıts suspense and excited that we should not want to make a break while reading it. searching for who is the murderer and making some assumptions in our brain gives us the capability of brainstorming.That's why ı chose ıt because of feelıng all of these qualities in her every book.

    I am absolutely impressed by the work of Guy Murchie, "The Seven Mysteries of Life". It is science, ecology, social sciences, philosophy and more. A well researched book that contains a lot of knowledge about all sorts of the evolving life in the universe. It is insightful. Thumbs up for Guy Murchie.
