O'Connor, most certainly. One being that I live about 70 miles from Milledgeville, another being that it is nice to have a "Gothic" (Southern Gothic in this instance) that is not only not Anti Catholic, but is herself very Catholic. The River is a good one, so A Good man is hard to find, but I think Judgement Day is probably my favourite.

I have recently read some of Anthony De Stefano's books and enjoyed them very much, A Travel Guide to Life, The Invisible World, A Travel Guide to Heaven and Angels all Around Us.

My favorite current author is Mike Aquilina, who writes about the the early Church fathers.

Also, I like Bishop Sheen. I especially like his book on Mary, The World's First Love.

Lucy, CS Lewis isn't Catholic, although he was on the verge, I believe on becoming Catholic. The poll clearly states CATHOLIC references. C.S. Lewis is not, although his writings are wonderful in the Christian sense, and then i would have a whole other list of authors that i reference. But, My vote should have been JRR Tolkien bc he is by far my most favorite, after I thought about this answer a little more.

Very upsetting showing for Waugh (my vote) and O'Connor . . .

Tolkien is evil? Honestly, about the only person on the planet that thinks that. The Lord of the Rings is a very well-known and well studied Catholic work of fiction! Sorry, but C.S. Lewis was not Catholic, hence the reason for the absence.
