A new Harris poll reveals that Stephen King is still “America’s favourite author.”
The 63-year-old contemporary horror writer is followed by:
No. 2: James Patterson
No. 3: John Grisham
No 4: Nora Roberts, who also writes as J.D. Robb
No. 5: Tom Clancy
Interestingly, author of the blockbuster Twilight series Stephenie Meyer did not make the top 10.
According to Harris, the poll was conducted online in the U.S. between August 9 and 16 with 2775 adults, aged 18 and over.
And just for the record, Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling takes the No. 9 spot, a title she shares with J. R.R. Tolkein.
