Feature and Follow Friday: Which authors would you invite to dinner?


Feature and Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read

Although I've been blogging for around six months now (blimey, that's gone fast!), this is my first ever Feature and Follow Friday post. The question this week is 'What living author or authors would you like to have dinner with?' I thought I'd have trouble choosing but two sprung to mind straight away. 

Anthony Horowitz: A favourite author of mine ever since I discovered the Alex Rider series of books as a teenager, Anthony is also a writer on some of my favourite crime dramas: Midsomer Murders, Foyle's War and Agatha Christie's Poirot to name but a few. He has also written a new Sherlock Holmes book, House of Silk which I reviewed here a few months back that I absolutely loved, and is currently working on another one, Moriarty, due out at the end of the year. Safe to say that we'd have plenty to talk about!






My second choice would have to be Elizabeth Chadwick. She writes historical fiction set in the Middle Ages, my absolute favourite era of history. I studied joint History and English at university and I'm not ashamed to say that a lot of my knowledge of that era came from her novels! I can imagine that she'd be fascinating to have a conversation with, particularly for a history nerd like myself!





How about you? Which authors would you invite to your dinner party?

  3. Hey happy Friday! I haven't ever heard of those authors... I may have to check them out some time I like historical fiction, especially romance.
