Top Ten Authors I’d like to meet

I do become a little bit tongue tied if I meet any authors so I’m not sure meeting them would be a good idea but going along to author events and readings is a different matter and I’ve enjoyed quite a few.

  2. Joe Abercrombie
  3. Robin Hobb
  4. Joanne Harris
  5. Ben Aaronovitch
  6. Brandon Sanderson
  7. Sarah Pinborough
  8. Joe Hill

Some authors that I would like to see:

  1. Mark Lawrence
  2. Jacqueline Carey
  3. Patricia Briggs
  4. Seanan McGuire
  5. Scott Lynch
  6. JK Rowling
  7. Adrian Tchaikovsky
  8. Lauren Beukes
  9. Kevin Hearne
  10. Cherie Priest

Some authors that I would love to see but are no longer with us:

  4. Ray Bradbury
  5. Diana Wynne Jones
  6. CS Lewis

Basically – these lists could go on forever because I have so many more authors I’d love to see.
