Amanda Hocking. She's a rockstar and I could read the Hollows series a million times...I may be half way there.
My favorite author is Richard K. Morgan. He writes futuristic cyberpunk and I love his descriptive narrative. He links ideas metaphorically I would never think to associate with one another.
i rarely pick books by author, i pick by what grabs my interest looking around the bookstore
sometimes if i read a book and it's really good, i may actually seek out another ont by the same author
or if i've read one i really didnt like, i keep that author in mind and remember to not get anymore of their books lol
My choices are very cliched, I'm afraid. Stephen King, HP Lovecraft, Oscar Wilde, Silvia Plath and Ira Levin are my favourite writers. Don't judge me.
