Most writers entertain.

These four writers do more than just entertain. They inspire you to relish the possibilities of the written word, of being a writer yourself. They make you reaffirm your unwavering love for fiction with every chapter,  sentence, or word. With every novel they have written, these four have made me realize that I can find solace in stories and magic in the mundane.
