One of the most influential writers? youbadboy
Why, you ask? He has been writing on Lit since 2002! The first great series I ever read was his Sara's Car Trip. It is such a fanatically hot series that it kept me coming back to literotica to find other authors of his caliber, which I have indeed!
I know I will be the only one voting for him but he deserves it.
There are tons of great authors that I've read and despairingly forgotten (one story in particular I have been searching for forever to find again), my fav. authors are from Incest/Taboo, though I have read Anal, Interracial, Loving Wives, Lesbian, Sci-fi categories and loved those as well.
Will definitely be giving DoctorWolf and ShiChiWriter a read as well.
