    As of right now, Brandon Sanderson. I like pretty much all of his books and he is my favorite current author. For all time.. I don't really know. There are just too many.

    ^^ I've just finished reading Kafka on the Shore by Murakami. I've read 6 of his books and he's definitely my favourite author as well.

    My all time favorite author: Terry Goodkind. Why? Honestly I fell in love with Richard and Kahlan. He did such a great job developing his characters in the Sword of Truth series (though his first book was a bit rough—however he only got better).
    I devoured all 12 books, though I believe he has added more.....If you haven't read them, they are wonderful, even if you don't like fantasy literature(and when I started I didn't, but now I'm a convert).

    My favorite authors are Matthew Reilly, in particular his 7 Deadly Wonders series. It is an inter-national team goin on Indian Jones type of adventures and I love the use of maps and diagrams in the books. Clive Cussler writes very similar types of stories. The Jack Reacher novels by Lee Child are also a lot of fun and have the - avenging angel/ fight for the little guy- feel to them.

    Vladimir Nabokov hands down. I have always been somewhat intimidated by more advanced literature in my English class, but I started to read Pale Fire on my own, and I loved it. I read Lolita next, and I'm currently reading his collection of short stories. His writing is truly original, and I can't wait to read more of his books.

    J.K. Rowling, is probably my favorite since Harry Potter. Alexandre Dumas is a close second and Once I finish The Three Musketeers the order might change.
