In case you missed it, go check out 7 Authors Whose Names You Are Probably Mispronouncing and thank you everyone who left their comments on that post. This is part two of "I had no idea that's how you pronounced their name" series. Seriously, that's usually what I say after learning the correct pronunciations. I hope you enjoy!
The author of Gone Girl pronounces her name with a hard G like Gill (not Jill).
Less-kwah is how this thriller novelist of books like Poison pronounces his last name. I've been saying less-cro-art (wrong!) all these years.
This Outlander author pronounces her last name GAB-uhl-dohn (long O that rhymes with stone).
This best-selling author of the Rose Harbor series says MAY-cumber. Like "cucumber" but with May instead of Q!
This kids author pronounces his name Jon (rhymes with on). Oh yeah, the last name: he says shess-ka (rhymes with fres-ca).
Author of The Princess Diaries Meg Cabot's last name rhymes with habit.
If you didn't already know, Mr. Sedaris has a new book out called Calypso. He also pronounces his last name se-DARE-is.
Neil GAY-mun (rhymes with Cayman) is the author of American Gods. You've probably heard of it.
