Best Authors in Leeds Voted by the Leeds Escorts

Leeds is the most affluent city in the North East and has loads of landmarks that really differentiate it from other UK cities, however what really gives it its flare though is its authors, so here is a short list of the best authors Leeds has to offer;

Eric Rücker Eddison 

Eric has created a few novel series based around the fantasy genre, being born in 1882, his work was praised by the creator of ‘The Lord of the Rings’ novel by J.R.R.Tolkien, putting him in a very big light as a fantasy writer. He inspired many authors in the 19th century and won quite a few awards as well, his books included: ‘The Worm Ouroboros’ and the ‘Zimianviam Trilogy’, which included ‘Mistress of Mistress’ and ‘The Menzentian Gate’ which is a favourite of the York escorts. Unfortunately he passed away in summer 1945.

Barbara Taylor Bradford 

Born in 1933 Barbara has sold over 30 million copies with her novel ‘A Woman with Substance’. She had quite a few years in journalism and throughout those years always had the dream of being a novelist, she succeeded and now is quite the reputable one and she’s had quite a few successes with her other novels such as: ‘Ravenscar Trilogy’ ‘Emma Harte Saga’ and ‘Secrets of the Past’. She’s not exactly stopping here either as we’ve uncovered she’s got a few more books on the way. The Leeds escorts are a huge fan of Barbara’s work and some of them have been to meet her and have a few books signed.

Keith Waterhouse  

Previously before being an author, Keith was part of the Royal Air Force and after he wrote a few columns for a few of the newspapers and in 2004 was voted ‘Britain’s Most Admired Contemporary Columnist’. In 1959 he created one of Britain’s famous novels ‘Billy Liar’ which was later adapted into a play, film, musical and TV series which captivated millions, other than that he created the screenplay ‘Whistle down the Wind’ which he won BAFTA’s for.
