Who is your favorite author? I know in this section we normally write pieces we create ourselves, but let's break beyond it a little and discuss some literature that we've read. Give some reasons why you like the author so much..heck..you can even tell us some other ones you like alot. My favorite author is Dean Koontz. I suppose you can compare him to Stephen King because of the type of genre he writes about...horror/fantasy/mystery. I just like the way he can capture your mind within the first chapter of his books. He always adds a twist into his stories of which changes every assumption of how you think it will end. My favorite books of his are: - The Odd Thomas trilogy (Odd Thomas, Forever Odd, and Brother Odd) - His take on Frankenstein (Book 1: Prodigal Son, Book 2: City of Night) - Midnight - Phantoms - and many more. Other favorite authors of mine are Stephen King and his book Needful Things (loved the movie aswell), and then there is J.K. Rowling of which she is famous for the Harry Potter books...and quite a few more. If you'd like, you can also tell us some of your other favorite writers...such as poets, drama (play), short stories, etc.
