Who are your favorite authors?

Ok, I can see you're tired of these questions but tell us, what are you working on next?
I'm working on two books right now. Well, really one but in two parts. It is my autobiography, told in short story form, semi-fictionalized, with the first book ending in early adulthood and the second one picks up from there going to present day. I'm sure I'll finish the first part, who knows about the second.
Thank you for your time. Do you have any parting words of advice for your readers?
Never pretend to be anyone other than who you are, even if it's only to yourself. That is true freedom.
