Most of these entries seem to start with me saying, well this is one of...(insert adjective or noun)..... but as I definitely have more than one favorite writer depending on my mood, the time of the year, what else I am reading and a whole host of other things...

I give you a writer who will never be recognised as a "great writer" but who nevertheless spins a very good story, who creates interesting and engaging characters who mostly have a character arc, who cared about populating a world with different cultures (even if the cultures could be a bit lot simplistic, who gave women characters positions of power even though they mostly had to be queens or princesses or ladies to be worthy of dialogue - but hell compare it to Wheel of Time!!! , who could make me laugh and cry within a page of each other, and who introduced me to the genre of "fantasy". and also caused a huge fight with my mother on the grounds she thought I would end up a satanist, as I was reading "those" books. Had great fun explaining how that was not true......

Anyway, if you like Fantasy, I say give David Eddings now David and Leigh Eddings, seeing he has acknowledged the role of his wife's contribution to their writing process

The Belgariad and the Malloreon...five books in each series, and they are some of my favorite books ever.
