My favourite writers are Kate Morton, Agatha Christie, Jim Butcher, Deanna Raybourn, Rex Stout, and Sophie Kinsella, in terms of 'will probably read anything they write/have written'.

I like them all for different reasons, but I think my favourite storyteller is Kate Morton. I am a huge fan of the way she weaves various time periods and generations together, so you never know what's going to happen until the end. She's amazing.

The Forgotten Garden was the first one I read of hers, after Mum raved and raved about it. We don't usually enjoy the same books, so I read it reluctantly, and it was awesome. All her books are like that, weaving the past and the present together. I really admire the planning that must go into that, versus my own 'let's start writing and see what happens' approach.
