Simple question, who is your favourite author?
What was the first book you read by them?
What books have you read that were written by them?
What was your favourite book written by them?
Which one of their characters do you like best?

And anything else that you want to say.
---

My favourite author is Sarah Dessen.

The first book I read that was written by her was Just Listen.

I have read Just Listen, The Truth About Forever, This Lullaby and Dreamland. I'm about half-way through Lock And Key and when I finish that I am going to read Along For The Ride.

Out of the ones I have read, Just Listen is probably my favourite although Lock And Key is really, really good.

Annabel from Just Listen is probably my favourite character from her books though that might change after I've finished reading the others. (:

Who is your favourite author? J.K. Rowling.
What was the first book you read by them? Err, Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows Harry Potter & the Philosopher's Stone.
What books have you read that were written by them? Harry Potter & the Philosopher's Stone, Harry Potter & the Chamber of Secrets, Harry Potter & the Prisoner of Azkaban, Harry Potter & the Goblet of Fire, Harry Potter & the Order of Pheonix, Harry Potter & the Half-Blood Prince, Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows. [That took awhile.]
What was your favourite book written by them? Possibly the first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth or seventh Harry Potter.
Which one of their characters do you like best? Draco Malfoy. I have this massive soft spot for seriously misunderstood bad boys. Harry Potter, Sirius Black, Fred & George Weasley [Fred more then George], Ron Weasley, Herimone Granger, Dobby, Voldemort 8D, Seamus Finnagin [this boy is hilarious in the films], & like everyone else.

Added Question:
Why do you like her/him? I like J.K Rowling because she just takes me into a whole new world. She really makes me feel like I'm there, in the story. So it's like, not only do I love the plot, but she really just takes me away. I know lots of people criticise her writing, but I love it - I just pick up a Harry Potter book & I'm away from reality, in a different place with the characters I love.
