J. K. Rowling, definitely.
Erin Hunter, author of the Warriors series (who is actually three authors working in collaboration).
Terry Pratchett (yay, Discworld).
Neil Gaiman ("world next door" motifs appeal to me, and he has a lot of those; also I like dark, brooding fiction).
Elizabeth Haydon.
Lately I'm getting into Holly Lisle.

My God. I definitely have to add Robert Ludlum to the list. I'm reading The Matlock Paper at the moment and it's ridiculously good.
