I'm curious if everyone here has a favourite author - if so who? (or whom?) and do you buy every book of theirs when it comes out?

Here's a few in my list (don't judge meeee):

Nicholas Sparks (I'm a sucker for the whole first-love stories)
Richelle Mead (love her Vampire Academy series and it's spin-off series)
Stephanie Perkins
Jodi Picoult

Who are yours?
