Honestly speaking, I don't read much from these famous authors. I've never really liked to read physical books so if I had to mention a few writers I liked I would probably mention you and Mike. Both of you are amazing. You both are kind, motivating and you share in-depth details and it seems like you both are working hard for both your own success but also to help others. That to me is way better than reading a book from Stephen King. EliteWriter, Procoder, Cristian and the rest of the Community Discussion contributors are highly appreciated as well, but you and Mike are two people who truly "stands out from the crowd" to me.

OMG I left out Mike! I love the way he writes. There have been times I have laughed out loud at some of the ridiculous things he has said.

Thank you so much for the compliment Andre, wow to be packaged together with Mike as a favourite is such a huge honour!

I am going to be smiling all day now!

I'm glad I could put a smile on your face Lynne. - However, that was never my intention. The only thing I did, was being honest. And well, you deserve it. Just like Mike does. Who are your favorite writers?

I'm a big geek when it comes to fantasy writing, so some of my favorite writers of all time include J.R.R Tolkien, J.K Rowling, and George R.R Martin. Well I love to hate George R.R Martin because he always loves killing off my favorite characters, as any fan of Game of Thrones is well aware of. Besides them, I also enjoy the works of Hunter S. Thompson and a lot of classic writers such as Edgar Allen Poe, Mark Twain, Ernest Hemingway, and George Orwell.

My favorite writer is Robert Kiyosaki. He wrote my favorite book, Rich Dad Poor Dad. He really gave me an eye opener about starting a business and getting out of your comfort zone. His book taught me how to develop the right mindset and attitude towards money before trying to solve financial problems. His book made me realize how important it is to start a business and pursue financial freedom rather than working just to simply earn money. He is a role model to me when it comes to financial literacy. Try reading his book. It's very informative. You will surely realize a lot of things.

Did you ever hear this name ? Ernest Hemingway ? Yes he is my one of my favorite writer in this world. I really loved his novels, journals, and especially his cool short stories. I have been already read those some of his short stories and it really made me fun. I loved it!

I love reading science fiction, adventure and fantasy books. The best books that I have read so far are the 'Lord of the Rings' series. I can read these books over and over again. My favorite writers are J. R. R. Tolkien, Stephen King, George R. R. Martin and Michael Moorcock. Unfortunately, I don't really have the talent to write science fiction movies. This is something I have always wanted to do.

I like Tom Clancy the most. His spy novels are the best with some of them becoming bestsellers and movies. Two of my favorite Clancy works are Clear and Present Danger and Patriot Games both of which became movies.

Tom Clancy must be really popular, but I have not heard of him. The thing is that I enjoy reading novels that makes us aware of some tactics we can use to monitor people and also those novels that ensure I learn so much about trust and how to build my confidence. So, I will try to check him out and see how good his works are. I really appreciate for mentioning his name.

Neil Gaiman is another one of my favorites, he wrote the bestselling book "American Gods" which was made into a Netflix series. But I like his other work "Sandman" more.

When it comes to picking out my favorite writer, I will have to to with some of the best writers that did some books on relationship and finance management. On that note, I'm picking Robert Greene and Robert Kiyosaki as the best for me for their books really contributed to what I am today and the zeal that I have to make bigger things happen in life.

My favorite writer is Anonymous. That's not a joke. In high school, there were two writings that I was required to read and these works had come down to us over a period of hundreds of years. The authors of these works ("Beowulf" and "Everyman") are unknown but they left a lasting impression on an impressionable teenager's mind.

My list includes...

Neil Gaiman
Arthur Conan Doyle
Stephen King
John Carpenter
John Grisham
J.K.Rowling
Tom Clancy
Stan Lee
Jack Kirby
JRR Tolkien
George R.R. Martin

These authors and their works have greatly influenced my life as an amateur writer.

My favorite writer has to be Stephen King as well. All of his horror novels are such a great book to read especially when you want to see them all come to the big screen. When I was watching IT for the first time it really gave me a lot of creeps and goosebumps but watching the new version of IT has even made it WORSE for me. One of the books I want to see Stephen King put as a movie would be Misery or The Shining but in a newer version just like IT. These two movies were actually great during their time. IT became the most recognizable one but still these two movies had a great reputation as well.

I have just a few favorite writers, and I’ll name one. If you don’t know who Haim Ginott is, just think of him as one of the men who pioneered most of the modern techniques for conversing with children. As a school teacher, child psychologist and psychotherapist, the goal of Haim Ginott was to establish good communication between parent and child and/or teacher and child. The messages of Haim Ginott are still taught today; such as that you should never deny or ignore a child’s feelings, to let children do what they can (“Dependence breeds hostility.”), address problems to be solved rather than attack a child’s personality, etcetera. I recommend you read Haim Ginott if you’re a parent or a babysitter, like me. He combines elements of both nonfiction in the form of conveying information that will educate you, and fiction in the form of hypothetical, situational examples that will entertain you. Haim Ginott - check him out!
