Favorite female author?

Nazaress Nazaress
My favorite female author (and favorite author period) is Ellen Hopkins. No matter how old I get, I will never stop reading her books. She recently started writing adult books in addition to young adult books, though, so I guess I can read books for my age SOMETIMES. I read her first one, Triangles, not that long ago and I like it. It has some racy stuff in it (it's about affairs and midlife crises) and it's definitely a bit different from her YA books. Then again, her YA books weren't exactly "kid-friendly" to begin with. That's why I love her. She tells the truth about teenagers and doesn't ignore things that are actually happening to teens today, like drugs, abuse, and prostitution.

The Wizard of Earthsea was a great series.

Madeleine L'Engle

I don't care much for how religious her works are, especially the last couple in the series.

Jacqueline Carey has some very good books. They can be a bit of heavy reading, but have an interesting and unique setting.

Sylvia Plath. She's predominately a poet, but The Bell Jar is one of my favorite novels ever.
Jaimes Jaimes
Hands down, Ayn Rand.

I've read nearly everything she's published, including plays and philosophy. Too many newsletters and essays to keep up with, but I have a whole lifetime for that!

I also really like Madeleine L'Engle's books.

Maud Hart Lovelace.

Books written in the 1940's that show female friendship as a healthy, good thing? That show a girl who pines over a jerk realizing what a dud the guy is and giving him a fantastic brush-off? Parents being equally supportive of ambitious and non-ambitious daughters? That teach that the most important component of any marriage is respect? Shocking! I can't praise them highly enough to any mother with daughters or any aunt with nieces or any woman in general.

Also lots of love for Madeleine L'Engle, J.K. Rowling, Astrid Lindgren, Laura Ingalls Wilder, Sidney Taylor, Diana Wynn Jones, and Lousia May Alcott for children's/YA, and Ursula K. LeGuin, Aphra Behn, Sylvia Plath, and Anne McCaffery for adult novels.

Anne Rice or J.K. Rowling. Both very different, both very good.
