Aging Bestsellers Quiz – guessing closed

Since it’s the week of birthdays around here I thought I’d see how well you can estimate ages.  I perused the bestseller list this week and found these authors.  You need to tell me which one you think is OLDER.  Easy right?  Leave your guesses in a comment.  Good luck!

No Googling or looking at other commenter answers.  Yes, we’re going by the honor system 🙂  Play every week or just one time, you are always welcome 🙂  It only takes once to be eligible for a prize.
