Who Would Be on Your Dream Author Panel?

April 17, 2017


Sitting down and reading a good book is something that I have not been doing too much of lately. There is no specific reason why … I go through periods like this. I have a stash of books waiting to be read from some of my favourite authors sitting by my bed right now!

Eventbright recently inspired me to join in with their Dream Author Panel … looking at my pile of books certainly got me thinking about who I would have on my own panel.

So who would I have on my Dream Author Panel?

It was really hard to sit down and think about who my favourite authors are. I like to read a wide variety of books quite often from all different authors.  I looked at my “To Read” pile and realised that 2 names popped up more than once so I thought I would share them with you!

Cathy Glass

I have been reading Cathy’s books for years! Cathy is a foster carer and and has looked after over 150 children over the past 25 years. Documenting her fostering memoris was groundbreaking! No one had ever written about looking after children in care. I love the way Cathy writes and I really feel like I get to know each child that she writes about. Cathy also updates her website whenever she has updates from any of the children she has fostered which is brilliant!

Honestly I don’t actually know what I would ask Cathy. I would love to just sit down and listen to her talk about the children that she has had in her care. I find her so inspiring!

Doreen Virtue

I may have mentioned on the blog before that I believe in Angels … Doreen Virtue therefore is someone that I would love to quiz. Doreen is the author over over 50 books on topics such as Angel Therapy, Fairies, Spirtuality and Healthy Living! Doreen also has a brilliant website full of all things Angel related.

I have so many questions that I would love to ask Doreen. Mainly along the lines of Angels and her experiences. To be able to find out how to grow my own experiences would be simply amazing!

I am wondering if you have ever heard of these authors before? If you had the chance to put together your own author panel who would you invite?

Huge thank you to Eventbright for inspiring me to get back into reading. If you are looking for help to plan conferences/events in your local area then please do check out their Conference Management Page

    Such a great idea! My dream author panel would definitely take some thinking! xx

    It’s not really a question that you hear often is it so I’m not surprised you struggled at first. The only name that springs to mind for me is Stephen King and maybe JK Rowling.

    I’ve not heard of either of those authors actually, will have a look. I would definitely like to ask JK Rowling some questions! I’d probably also like Sophie Kinsella and Khaled Hosseini. Might add Sue Monk Kidd into the mix as well. I’m sure it would be quite the dinner party!

    I’ve heard of the Cathy Glass books but I’ve never got around to reading any. But they sound like my cup of tea!

    I too haven’t done a lot of reading lately. This would be a tough question for me. Cathy Glass sounds like an amazing author. I’m interested in foster care so I will have to check out her books.

    I love your picks although haven’t heard of them all before!! I’m not entirely sure who I would choose though there are many great authors!

    If I could choose any authors from past or present I would choose F. Scott Fitzgerald, author of my favorite novel, The Great Gatsby, and Dr. Suess, my favorite children’s author. Great question!

    I would love to have a chat with Jaqueline Wilson, she was my favourite author as a child and I think the way she works in real issues is great.

    I actually have not heard of the two authors you have chosen. I would definitely choose Sophie Kinsella and Liane Moriarty from living authors and Jane Austen for author from the past.

    I have no idea what an author panel is! But I would love to meet Philip Pullman.

    As someone who grew up in care from the age of 10 I admire someone like Cathy who fosters children like myself. I was certainly not an easy child to look after but my foster mum never gave up on me and she continues to shower children with love x
