    Arthur Conan Doyle

    Edgar Rice Burroughs (Tarzan series)

    Sinclair Lewis

    Ayn Rand

    LaVyrle Spencer

    L.M. Montgomery (Emily of New Moon and Anne of Green Gables series, but "The Blue Castle" most)

    John Grisham

    Karen Cushman (Catherine, Called Birdy)

    Harper Lee

    Nathaniel Hawthorne

    Scott O'Dell (Island of the Blue Dolphin,lots of others)

    Leo Tolstoy (his short stories-haven't read anything else)

    Terry McMillan
