One of my favorite authors is Erin Hunter (actually 6 writers!). They are geniuses. I have only read (most) of the Warriors series as of yet, but look forward to Seekers and Survivors. You can check them out here:
Another author that I’m crazy about is Piers Anthony. I love his Xanth series, with upwards of 40 books. I think I’m only current through book 31, though, so I need to get working on that.
