Darren Shan - he does horror but in the fantasy genre. 
Scott lynch - who is the amazing author of The lies of Locke Lamora. 
Naomi Novik - For giving me the Temeraire series. 

I would like to say Christopher Paolini since he was so young writing Eragon and have lots of promise. He has really inspired me as an author.

Christopher Paolini and J. K. Rowling. Pretty standard if you ask me.
