I've been writing off and on for at least 20 years. My inspiration comes from a variety of sources; history, music, art and other writers. I'd like to see writers of color tackle all aspects of speculative fiction. We need to have our hands in everything! :-) My favorite writer is Charles R. Saunders, and the last book I read was The Seedbearing Prince II by DeVaun Sanders. It's an excellent book.(less)
