Booking Through Thursdays – Ground Floor

10 Feb

Booking Through Thursday is a weekly meme. To play along just answer the following question 😀

There’s something wonderful about getting in on the ground floor of an author’s career–about being one of the first people to read and admire them, before they became famous best-sellers.

Which authors have you been lucky enough to discover at the very beginning of their careers?

And, if you’ve never had that chance, which author do you WISH you’d been able to discover at the very beginning?

I have to say the only book i can think of is Harry Potter and the Philosphers Stone. I was around 11 years old and picked up this book and started to read it at school. I kind of grew up with this book series and loved that sense of anticipation everytime a new book came out!

I wish i could have discovered authors like Jodi Picoult, Jill Mansell, Terry Prachett and Stephen King at the very begining!
