Basically, I don't limit myself to one particular genre or style -- reading or writing. I have a lot of books in my library that originally sold for 95 cents, because I bought them for that little when they were new and refuse to get rid of them. Because to misquote C.S. Lewis, books worth reading as a child are worth re-reading as an adult -- they stand the test of time.
So how can you ask me to pick ONE favorite author?
