1. Michael Crichton

The one who started it all. Author of books like Jurassic Park, The Andromeda Strain, and Prey

2. Lincoln Child

Along with Douglas Preston, the author of the Pendergast series. Solo, other titles.

  1. What’s your favourite Dean Koontz? I haven’t read any but he’s my friend’s favourite author and she said Watchers is amazing – what would you suggest?
