    I read a lot and have many, but my favorite is Dean Koontz because he is a great wordsmith and he can really build the suspense.  Stephen King is up there too.  

    You probably meant "Who is your favorite author"?  I like Gregg Braden who talks sense into all the people who are worried about the wold ending in 2012. He's a scientist who discovered cycles and patterns in every day life and history. Knowing these patterns and changing them can prevent wars and mass hysteria. Check out his books.

    Love Bradens' books and his website vids...a cool head!

    Dean Koontz is my favorite author. He puts his words just right! I shiver. He writes about the locations that I know and understand.


    I like Stephen King too. He’s a little too wordy, but I love how he uses music in his text.
