Okay, first question for this new blog feature:
Who is your favorite author and why? (include favorite book by them, why do you like it)
A friend on Twitter told me that this is nearly an impossible question since her favorite author has changed over the years and is still constantly in flux. (Which was also expressed by KC below before I added this part) So, a corollary to this question: If you were stranded on a deserted island and could only have one book, what would it be? Is the author of that book your all-time favorite author or someone else?
