Why I Love Wednesdays...Who is Your Favorite Author?

By Bookaholic @BookReflections
Why I Love Wednesdays...Who is Your Favorite Author?I am returning with my new feature...Why I love which takes place onWednesdays    In the previous weeks I've discussed my favorite time period, reading spot,  one of my favorite series, my favorite book institution,  types of characters, and one of my favorite genres.  This week's topic: favorite author.

If you want to play along, feel free to grab the image and link your post in the comments.  One of these days I will start to provide a linky if more people join up.  Until then, this way is simpler.  Here goes.
Why I Love...???So here's the thing.  This has been on my list for a topic for sometime, but I have skirted away from this question week after week.  Why?  I don't think I have a favorite author.  I know that's crazy.  Everyone has a favorite author right?  There are authors that I enjoy but usually it isn't because of amazing writing style or anything.
I enjoy Linda Howard because I know what to expect.  I know what will happen and what tends to be outside of her boundaries and I like that.  I enjoy Janet Evanovich but I only read her Stephanie Plum series and nothing else.  I enjoyed Stephanie Meyer's Twilight but didn't even consider reading The Host.  I enjoy reading Nora Roberts but never read any books under her J.D. Robb pseudonym.  In fact when I was younger *cough* twenty-two *cough* I usually didn't even pay attention to the author's name.  I realized later that it was very embarrassing that I never knew the author of books I was raving about.  I started to catalog this extra piece of information.
One for the Money (Stephanie Plum, No. 1)Shades Of TwilightCarnal InnocenceTwilight (The Twilight Saga, Book 1)
I don't tend to get attached to particular authors.  I get attached to characters and series.  I like predictability.  I like knowing that if I'm in a particular mood, I can head straight to Linda Howard and be extremely satisfied.  But I don't have a favorite author.
So this week's topic is favorite author.  Which author(s) do you love?  And why don't I have one? Am I weird? Am I over thinking this? Probably.  I'm quite accustomed to it.  How do you pick a favorite author?
