The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Crazy for Books.
This week's question is: Tell us about some of your favorite authors and why they are your favorites. (Remember, this is just some of my favorite authors!)
Answer: Charles de Lint because he writes magical stories with beautiful words. They have transported me to places that I only thought existed in my dreams and it seems he writes from an enchanted place in his soul. His characters are like friends that I know somehow. My favorite is Memory and Dream.
Douglas Clegg - He gives me that creepy feeling that I look for when reading a scary story. His writing haunts me long after I put his work down. I loved You Come When I Call You.
Stephen King - Mostly his earlier works, which are very eerie. He wrote one of the only books that really scared me, Pet Sematary.
Robert McCammon - He has written some amazing stories, from Horror to Historical Fiction. I get engrossed in all his work. I think my favorite would have to be Swan Song.
Patricia McKillip - Her fantasy writing is some of the most ethereal I have ever read. My favorite book of hers is Solstice Wood.
