Five! Five days in a row! That’s, like, almost an entire work week or something. Today’s prompt is extremely contemplative and thought-provoking…for everyone else but me. Coherent thoughts elude me right now. Okay, prompt me!
Any author? Living or dead? So I could theoretically choose Shakespeare? Or Homer? Or even one of the Apostles? Perhaps Snooki (How’d that bitch get published? Seriously.)? Interesting. Let me think. Hahaha. Who am I kidding? This is a no-brainer.
Harlan Coben. All the way.
There are many great authors I enjoy reading, but Harlan Coben puts them all to shame. In my book he does, anyhow (see what I did there?). He captivates me in a way no other author can. Once I start reading any book of his I cannot stop reading until I reach the end. I’ve learned from experience not to start reading a book of his unless it’s Friday night, otherwise I’ll stay up all night reading it and get absolutely zero sleep. Then, I’ll be dragging ass at work the next day. Yes, this has happened to me. Multiple times. Talk about unproductive. Ugh.
Also, if there’s any author who could make my life sound interesting enough to read, it would be Harlan Coben. He would somehow keep you turning the pages through my mundane life. He’s just that good. I’m sure Michael Crichton would do an adequate job, but not much in my life needs to be explained using science fiction. Well, besides my first marriage. I’m still trying to figure that one out and I wouldn’t mind seeing the science behind it. I mean, there has to be some scientific reasoning behind it other than a complete lack of intelligence. I’m pretty smart, so I don’t want to accept that I was just stupid, even though that’s probably the only explanation. Oh, geez. I’m rambling again. I can’t believe you guys are still reading this. Stop. Stop! Ugh… Okay, I’m done now. I need to go get more coffee.
Authors I also considered for this prestigious honor
It’s that very special time now, folks. No, not happy hour. It’s audience participation time! You know you love it. I pose this question to you: 2-ply or 4-ply? Wait, that’s not the right question. What author would YOU choose to write your biography?
