John Marrs. 

I am new to John Marrs' work, and he has become one of my favourite authors. Marrs writes page turners, with plenty of shock value. If I detest a character within the first thirty minutes of reading a book, I know that I am going to keep on reading to find out if they will meet their demise. My first of Marrs' novels was 'The Good Samaritan'. I have never despised a character more than I did with Laura, the 'friendly' voice on the phone at 'end of the line.' I then read 'The Marriage Act' and I was impressed with how many sub plots and twists he had managed to weave into one novel. 

My favourite authors and my favourite novels...

The King of Horror, Mr Stephen King. King creates identifiable, often flawed characters, that demand the reader's sympathy, or provoke anger. He builds suspense and tension effortlessly. King has stated that he doesn't plot or prepare when he writes a novel. To think that he has published 65 novels/novellas and is estimated to have sold more than 400 million copies, without ever plotting his novels is just phenomenal. Misery, Dolores Claiborne, The Mist, Rose Madder and The Green Mile, are my favourites.
