No-one working in these genres really springs to mind as a "best author of our time." There are certainly folks selling plenty of books in these categories, but most of them are not exactly what I'd call literature. In any case the "bestsellers" link on Amazon will quickly lead you to the James Pattersons, Dan Browns, and the other individuals who most successfully ply the writers trade in our time.

Hitchcock was a writer?

This is somewhat subjective. Personally, I would say "nobody" since I don't particularly like those genre.

No one not single one. Sigh.
