    WIP Romance or Women's fiction, hopefully by the end I'll know.

    Andy Weir, of course.

    Stephen King and Nelson DeMille.

    But Tim Cockey has a series of mysteries whose MC, Hitchcock Sewell, runs a funeral parlour with his aunt. Most of the titles include the word "Hearse" (The Hearse You Came In On, Hearse of a Different Color...). He now writes in a more serious vein as Richard Hawke, but his Hearse series killed me.
    It's a simple fact of life that not everyone will be your target audience.

    I remember laughing out loud so many times while reading James Herriot's novels in middle school: the man was brilliant, and some of his character description is hilarious. I recently went back to look at those novels again, and was pleased to see that his writing is still something I consider really good (unlike other beloved novels from my early years I've revisited).
