Name Scrunchies: Writers' Edition (9/4)

Each of the following famous writers’ names have been scrunched to form an English word. Your job is to unscrunch them.

For example, take the scrunched name HERE (6, 8). If you inserted "MAN MELVILL" after the third letter, you’d get HERMAN MELVILLE, whose name has six letters in the first and eight in the last.

The letters that I removed were all adjacent, and I kept a minimum of one letter from both the first and last names (that is, I have used at least the first letter of the first name and the last letter of the last name).

One last thing: there are a handful of modern writers in the mix.

Can you unscrunch them all?

1) CHICKENS (7, 7)
2) WILLING (7, 7)
3) BROKER (4, 6)
4) WITHER (5, 7)
5) RICHES (7, 6)
6) BARBER (7, 10)
7) TARDY (6, 5)
8) ALLEY (6, 6)
9) STING (7, 4)
10) ROBES (6, 6)
11) AGATE (6, 8)
12) MAIN (4, 5)
13) JOKE (4, 6)
14) HARE (6, 3)
15) MALL (8, 8)
16) JOCK (4, 9)
17) ALAS (9, 5)
18) HENS (5, 5)
19) RING (7, 7)
20) EDGE (5, 5, 3)
21) LOON (4, 5)
22) SANE (7, 5)
23) SINS (8, 5)
24) ODE (5, 5)
25) AX (5, 6)
