Weekly Geeks: An ABC Author List

This week on Weekly Geeks, Suey is challenging us to compile a list of ABC authors. She writes:

You know how when someone asks you who your favorite author is? And you feel a bit crazy coming up with just one? Now is your chance to come up with 26 (at least) favorite authors by making a list of  them ABC style.  (See my above link from the past for an example.) There are no rules, list a couple per letter if you feel the need. Skip a letter if you draw a blank. Make it be categories if you want to.  For instance, a favorite YA author list. A favorite classic author list.  A favorite “new to me” author list. A favorite mystery author list. Or simply an all time favorite author list… from A to Z!

I thought this would be a fun one to do. Here is my list of A to Z favorite authors (I have listed more than one under some letters):

A: Margaret Atwood, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
