Book writers? I don’t have A favorite. I have several! Neil Gaiman, Susan Elizabeth Phillips, Paulo Coelho, Markus Zusak, JK Rowling, Georgette Heyer, among many others. A favorite for me is when I want to read everything they’ve read and go crazy for their works.
My one favorite writer was Max Soliven(1929-2006), a prominent Filipino journalist whose daily editorial columns I read with a passion. I was sad when he died, which meant I couldn’t read his witty and excellently written opinions column. God bless his soul.
