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.
