Favourite Authors A-Z

I first saw this over at Danielle's blog, but since then have seen it on a number of others, and thought I might give it a go myself. The idea is to list your favourite author and your favourite book by that author, but I might cheat especially if their books are all interconnected. I was feeling a little smug thinking that my spreadsheets would help make this relatively easy, but then I started with the letter A and had three possible authors to put down, so it isn't as easy as you think! So here goes:

A - Kelley Armstrong (Women of the Otherworld series)
B - Anne Bishop (Black Jewels series)
C - Susan Carroll (Fair Isle series)
D - Sara Donati (Into the Wilderness series)
E - Janet Evanovich (Stephanie Plum series)
F - Jasper Fforde (Thursday Next series)
G - Diana Gabaldon (Outlander series)
H - Khaled Hosseini (A Thousand Splendid Suns)
I - Uzondinma Iweala (Beasts of No Nations)
J - Eloisa James (Kiss Me Annabel)
K - Marian Keyes (Walsh sisters series)
L - C S Lewis (Chronicles of Narnia)
M - Stephenie Meyer (Twilight Saga)
N - Diana Norman (Makepeace Burke trilogy)
P - Sharon Kay Penman (Welsh Trilogy, Sunne in Splendour)
Q - Julia Quinn (Bridgerton series)
R - J D Robb (In Death series)
S - Paullina Simons (The Bronze Horseman trilogy)
T - Shaun Tan (The Arrival)
U - Luis Alberto Urrea (The Hummingbird's Daughter)
V - Elizabeth Vaughan (The Warlord Chronicles)
W - J R Ward (Black Dagger Brotherhood)
Y - Peter Yeldham (Barbed Wire and Roses)
Z - Markus Zusak (The Book Thief)

There are a couple of those that I wouldn't necessarily count as absolute favourites, but they are definitely favourites of the books that I have read by authors whose surnames start with that letter!

I do wonder if anyone has managed to find an author for X? There must be some out there.

If you decide to have a go at this, let me know!
