1. Who’s your all-time favorite author, and why?

Iris Murdoch – she has everything – humour, raciness, romance (of sorts), cleverness, something to think about and LOTS of books to read!

2. Who was your first favorite author, and why? Do you still consider him or her among your favorites?

I loved pony books by Jill Ferguson and the Pullein-Thompsons, all the Noel Streatfeilds and other classic writers – and I still do!

3. Who’s the most recent addition to your list of favorite authors, and why?

Debbie Macomber is a biggie – gentle reads but with impeccable writing, humour and touching portrayals of friendship.  Jennifer Chiaverini is another. I’m also liking some cosy mysteries, but only quilting/sewing ones!

4. If someone asked you who your favorite authors were right now, which authors would first pop out of your mouth? Are there any you’d add on a moment of further reflection?

Iris Murdoch, Larry McMurtry, Bill Bryson, Michael Holroyd.  Erm… reflecting… Anne Tyler, anyone published by Persephone…
