John Sandford love the way he writes

Joyce Carol Oates. Brilliant prolific writer
She came and did a one week fellowship for a Writer in Residency when I was in grad school. She was gracious and charming.
Brenda Novak, Mary Jo and Sandra Brown awesome authors.
Stephen King seems like a pretty chill dude and he is obviously rich as fuck.
Or, perhaps, Hunter Thompson, but I can’t help thinking that he wouldn’t be as fun as he seems.
Bill Bryson, his books make me laugh so much! A x
Frank Herbert. Never mind that he’s dead.
Fanny Flagg. Love her homespun humor.

Jayne Ann Krentz because she’s 3 authors in one body!
Jojo Moyes…i love how her characters are relatable
Kahled AlHosseini ❤️ because he is amazing!
David Sedaris he’s the funniest writer ever and I read a recent interview with him and he told the interviewer he never reads anything written about himself so he would never see the story. That’s living authentically.

AJ Finn. To find out where he gets his inspiration for twisted endings
