"Books are a uniquely portable magic." –Stephen King

This is a very difficult subject for me, because I have so many choices! I would have loved to sit and listen to Michael Crichton talk about how he develops his stories, or the imagination of Stephanie Meyer. I’ve always thought it would be cool to speak with Socrates, or meet the authors of the original Greek myths.

I’m honestly not sure which author I would like to meet most, but after considering it, I have to say meeting P.C. & Kristin Cast would be really cool. I love their take on the traditional vampire stories, and the fact that the books are set in my hometown is REALLY cool.

I’m currently reading the House of Night series again, and I can’t wait to get their other books and enjoy them as well. Zoey Redbird is an awesome character, but relatable at the same time. I feel like if I were younger, she and I could be good friends. I think that’s the mark of a great author, and a great storyteller. If a reader can find at least one character to relate to, and feel like he or she could live in the world in the story, then the author is a truly great person.

What about you? what author would you most like to meet? Answer in the comments below or follow me on Instagram @thepickybookworm! I’d love to hear your thoughts!
