Sometimes there are so many things happening at the same time, and it is impossible to do or take part in half of what I want..... Well, I made sure yesterday that I went to http://www.stavanger-kulturhus.no/kapittel where I listened to, and met, one of my favorite Norwegian writers, TOVE NILSEN, who also signed one of her books that I am actually reading just now, and I was therefore still carrying it around in my bag :)

Who is your favorite author?

Great photo with a natural smile. I think this has only happened to me once, and it was Martin Carthy, a famous British folk musician, who signed my copy of one of his albums, on tape, I think. Favourite author - that's difficult - C.S Lewis (Narnia, Out of the Silent Planet, Mere Christianity) perhaps.

Good for you! Now, I'll have to think about my favorite author. There are so many!

Beautiful lady! As to the favourite author question, that's a difficult one, but I can tell you I love south american literature and Gabriel Garcia Marquez is on top of that list.

The other day Stavanger came to my mind when I got this e-mail with a pps attachement showing the Preikestolen. :-)

What a warm portrait, just right for a writer! Picking a favorite author is like picking a favorite child. I just can't do it. But, I have recently read good serious books by Pat Conroy and Stephen Carter, and any time I want to escape with a good fast-read mystery, I look for Harlan Coben or Randy Wayne White.

No favorite authors recently, but I spent a great summer some years ago in the world of Patrick O'Brian. I love the travel writing of Bill Bryson and Paul Theroux.

My favorite author is Nabokov. I would have loved to meet him if he were still alive. Lucky you you got to meet one of your favorite writers! :) What is her book about?
