Right now?

Cassandra Clare - Author of the Mortal Instruments series and the Clockwork trilogy.

Check out my website The Wandering Squirrel

Working on a new draft of Tomorrow and a first draft of a dystopian-ish novel. We'll see what actually gets written, lol.

To many to name them all, but as a top 3 I'd say Roger Zelazny, Sherzahd, Tolkien. Beyond those, the list is endless.

Not doing enough reading at the moment to have one, but since I'm following (and loving doing so) Neil Gaiman on Twitter, him.

My Stories here:

Voice of Ice (Cosmic Horror)
Night of the Wind (Fantasy)
Lady in the Lake (Ghost Story)

My Poems Here:

On Seeing the Light (Re)born - Revelling in a tropical sunrise
Spooky People - Hallowe'en celebration

My favorites seldom change. I read Raymond Chandler for the realistic ambiance of Los Angeles in the first part of the 20th century. I read Rex Stout for his New York City tales of mystery and wit. I read Jane Austen for the genteel humor and atmosphere of early 19th century England.

All I'm saying is you've never seen me crying and eating tacos at the same time.

John Irving is probably my favorite all-time with Hotel New Hampshire being my favorite of his books.

I read many books simultaneously, or, a little of each every day.
Read in the past two months I recommend: David McCullough. John Adams.

at the moment Frog Prince and rbo. I can read a Piers Anthony over and over and never get tired of it. Asimov is such a deep thinker. Niven brings new situations and creatures to life... I could go on.

May your parchment be smooth, your ink never blot, and your writing never block.

I have been having a lot of fun recently trying to get through as many Agatha Christie books as I can. She is the lady who invented Miss Jane Marple, Hercule Poirot, and Harley Quinn. They always challenge your inner detective.

As for who is my favorite author, that is almost impossible, but Plato, Nietzsche, Shakespeare's Plays and Sonnets, William Butler Yeats, Tennyson, Hemingway, Dostoyevsky, Gogol, Patanjali, Laozi, Frederich Hoelderlin, Schiller, Dante Alighieri, and many, many others. It really depends on what area I am caught up in at the time.
