J.K. Rowling, I'd pick her brain about how she wrote Harry Potter.

Have you read Harry, A History by Melissa Anelli? In her book, she walks us through the different fansites, fanfiction, premieres, interviews with Jo Rowling, a Potter film set, podcasts and so much more. Reading this book was like re-living the Potter craze. I loved being to able to get a sneak peak at being an insider.

NO, oh my goodness, I'll have to look at Borders when I go today. Thanks for the reccomendation!

I do have A Muggle's guide to the Wizarding world by Fiona Boyle. It only goes up to the 5th book, so it's a little out of date, but I love it and I'm keeping it forever. I got it from my best friend at the time and it remindes me of the huge Potter Craze. I was right in the middle of the craze. I'd dress up for the midnight releases (both the books and the movies). I'll be going to the last two midnight showings of Harry Potter 7. But then it'll be over.

J.K. Rowling would be pretty neat to meet I have to agree. Also Danielle Steel. She's wrote sooo many books and just keeps coming up with ideas.

Yes, Danielle Steel is so prolific! I used to read her books. I don't think there are many I haven't read. Except the ones she's written in the last handful of years, which I'm sure is a lot.

I'm kinda afraid to meet Stephen King. His books are amazing... and scary. He has to have some twisted mind to write the books to write the books that he does. But I've read that he's just a normal guy where he lives.

Stephen King and Dean Koontz are both amazing writers...and both a little scary lol. Oh! And R.L Stine. I used to love his books when I was younger. I'd be a little intimidated to meet all three....

Dean Koontz is another favorite of mine. Now he doesn't scare me as much as Stephen King does. Yes, there are a few books here and there that I was taken aback by, but for the most part, not too bad.
