Because I am greedy and I cannot choose only one.
Terry Pratchett, though, if you forced me, would be my absolute all-time favourite writer because he was funny and wise and filled with rage and he channelled his rage into writing about people and the best and worst of us all.
And also Maya Angelou, who first made me realise what writing could be and what it could do.
And David Sedaris, because he shows me how to look more closely at the world and at my reactions to it.
And Anne Lamott who is painfully honest about what it’s like to be a writer and a human.
