1. Who's your favorite all-time author, and why?
Eek!! This is a really tough question. I do not have a favorite author because I love and admire so many that I could never choose.
2. Who was your first favorite author, and why?
Ah, this is easier. Back in simpler times I was absolutely in love with Enid Blyton, author of many tales such as Mallory Towers, The Galliwags, Mr. Pinkwhistle and many, many others. Her perfect blend of the mystical and mythical was what I was into back then and some of today's authors such as J.K. Rowling credit their way of writing to her.
Neil Gaiman. His story Anansi Boys was unbelievable. He has a way of mixing old folk tales and modern life effortlessly and his happy endings are very realistic. His work is just....absolutely awesome. If I could, I would celebrate the day I chose to read his stories.
4. If someone asked you who your favorite authors were right now, what would pop out of your mouth?
Too numerous to mention.
