Your Favorite Author
Do you have a favorite author? Perhaps you have many, or maybe you’ve never thought about it. What would the world be like if no one had ever chosen to write? Without authors there would be no Bible, no Magna Carta, no Declaration of Independence or Constitution of the United States, no IRS Code (yuck!) … Well, you get it…and we haven’t even mentioned any of the ancient classics like Homer’s Odyssey and Iliad, Plato’s Republic, or Virgil’s Aeneid. Jumping ahead a couple of millennia, without authors there would be no Don Quixote, Macbeth, Pride and Prejudice, Jane Eyre, Moby Dick, or hundreds and hundreds of other perennial favorites.
Fortunately that did not happen and there are myriads of authors to choose from. So, here’s your opportunity to decide on your favorite author (if you haven’t already) and tell others which one you like best and why the person is your favorite. If you wish, please feel free to include which books of your favorite author you love best.
Mine are—based on number of their books I’ve read and re-read—Anthony Trollope (Dr. Thorne) and Wilkie Collins (The Woman in White). Why? I’m just a sucker for a well-written romance. Btw, Wilkie and I both adored TWIW (see photo of his gravestone in London—click it to enlarge).
I can’t wait to find out what you all come up with!
