My favorite author for now is Bruce Francois. He owns my favorite quote: " discovering purpose is discovering Your source".
"Purpose was intentional".

So many! Arthur Conan Doyle for mystery, J. K. Rowling because of my childhood memories, George R. R. Martin for fantasy...

The author that really got me into reading adult fiction is Michael Crichton. He wrote gripping novels that educate the reader at the same time. Along the way, I stumbled on several other authors adding to my list of favorites; Stephen King, RA Salvatore , and Robert Jordan, to name a few.

Marissa Meyer, Fredrik Backman, Markus Zusak, and Stephanie Garber are my favorites at the moment.
One should never save cake for later when it can be eaten now.
- Marissa Meyer
We always think there's enough time to do things with other people. Time to say things to them. And then something happens and then we stand there holding on to words like 'if'.
- Fredrik Backman
Sometimes people are beautiful.
Not in looks.
Not in what they say.
Just in what they are.
- Markus Zusak
Hope is a powerful thing. Some say it’s a different breed of magic altogether. Elusive, difficult to hold on to. But not much is needed.
- Stephanie Garber

Nicholas Sparks is my favorite. I've been reading his books since I was in sixth grade and not a single book of his made me regret reading it. His play of words is like his signature. I can read a book without checking from the cover who the author is and know that it's Nicholas Sparks.

This is a difficult question to answer considering that what I want to read depends greatly on my mood. Nonetheless, I find Michael Crichton to be one of my consistent favorites. Having many standalone novels makes it easy to pick up something of his for casual reading. The plot twists and detailed science fiction elements always make me want to reread his books.

Sarah Pinborough
She is my favorite author who writes psycholigical thriller. She is the only one who can make me scream at the book with love and hate at the same time. She knows when and how to catch the readers off-guard.

In college, I didn't want to look too lowbrow, so I often said that the authors of classics were my favorites, like Faulkner or Melville, but I eventually admitted to myself that some of the classics bored me to tears. I now absolutely love thrillers and horror, as well as historical fiction and fantasy, so my current favorites have to be Stephen King, Patrick Rothfuss, and Dean Koontz.

There are so many, and it changes with age, I find.

When I was a kid, anything by Tolkein and Roald Dahl.
Teenager years was Stephen King mixed with Dickens, Hardy, Bronte sisters, Virginia Woolf.
Twenties I loved Ben Okri and Margaret Atwood.

And in my 30s and 40s I loved Vikram Seth, Ian Banks and Ian M. Banks, Any Tan.

But I think I will always go back to George Orwell novels and Yeats' poetry.
