My favourite writers – a list.

It is always dangerous doing a list. You always miss someone off. Never mind – it is fun.

These are the writers I have greatly enjoyed through my life. They’ve made me laugh, cry, wonder and above all – THINK. They’ve drawn me in to different worlds, different lives and different minds. They’ve taught me about myself and they’ve entertained me.
