Friday Fun 1: Find the Authors




Alliteration can be fun, if it’s not overdone. (Ah! it rhymes.)

But I tend to overdo it.

Well, so we have a new series called “Friday Fun“.

On those Fridays when we do not have an F-page to post, we shall have FF – Friday Fun or should it be Fun Friday?

I have been scratching my head over the past few weeks as to what could be fun, given the context of PlusMinus’n’More.

I set a few constraints for myself.

  • It should be something that makes you rack your brain, but not too much.
  • The answers should be non-googlable.
  • Lastly, something that is relevant to books and our site.

So, here we go.

Below are the names of ten authors.

Your task is to find the authors.
