Saturday Word Play: Genre Fiction Hide and Seek

This week's Saturday Word Play is inspired by the Genre Fiction Challenge hosted by Samantha at Bookworms and Tea Lovers. In "Hide and Seek" the answers are hidden in plain view.

In this version of the game, I'll give you the genre, you tell me the author (last name only). As always, feel free to do them all at home, but only answer one in the comment section, that way 10 people will have a chance to play.
