I'm sitting here looking at my bookcase full of books I have read

I'm trying to think of my favourite authors. Have decided they are - not necessarily in order:

Steven King

Dick Francis

Susan Howatch

Denis Wheatley

Nicci French

Jean Plaidy/Victoria Holt (sad I know)

What's all yours?

Oooops forgot Dean Koontz - sorry Mr Koontz :d

Interesting topic - here's my contribution:

Dick Francis (snap!)

Maeve Binchy

Terry Pratchett

P D James

Agatha Christie

Ian Rankin

Nevil Shute

Also not in any particular order. As you can see I enjoy crime novels! There are many others, but I decided to restrict myself to the first few I thought of.

Glad there's someone else still up at this time of night jabber. Interesting selection. I love Dick Francis though I don't generally like crime books.

Ruth Hamilton as hers are set in Bolton and I know all the places that she talks about.

Anna Jacobs starts off in England then ends up in western Australia when people where just beginning to settle there Wendell you might find them interesting.
