They say never meet your heroes, but I'd have to make an exception. I've read most of Palahniuk's work and am on track to read the rest. They're the kind of books that devastate and linger. I can only guess at the personality behind them.
I mean, who wouldn't? Seriously, though, besides having written some of my favorite books of all time, she seems by all accounts charming, clever, and just a genuinely good person.
Speaking of idols, I think I'd lose my words if I met Tamora. Her books are classics, the very fantasy that inspired me to write.
I've a feeling we'd get on. Perhaps I flatter myself, but I do share Gaiman's black sense of humor--and his wardrobe, of course. Not to mention, I can only imagine he'd have fascinating things to say.
John Green seems such a delightful mix of humble and quirky that I feel I'd like him instantly. Not to mention he's wickedly smart.
We've spoken quite briefly, at a signing, but I'd love a chance to talk with her more. Her books are some of the most innovative I've ever read, and she seems quite down to earth.

King has the distinction of having written the only books that have ever truly frightened me. I'd be fascinated to know the man who could make that happen.

Accounts of him make him seem like somewhat of an ass, but he's a brilliant writer, and given his whirlwind career, I can only imagine he'd have the best stories.
