Do you have a favorite author or maybe more than one?
My mother is a voracious reader and has many favorite authors. I have my own list of favorites, of course. I tend not to share my list with many people, because there can be some judgement among fellow authors. We have impeccable authors who are masters of the craft, and we have impeccable authors who are masters of telling a story. The rare combination of both is to be envied, but we all work towards that goal. I tend to find myself attracted to the master storytellers. Those are not always the ones other authors look up to, but it doesn't stop me from reading them.
Bottom line - read what you enjoy and don't worry about what anyone else thinks!
