“Writers are influenced by their upbringing and experiences. But they are also influenced by the writings of others, the major historical events of their times and the great public and literary figures to whom they are exposed.”
Joseph Kenyon

“There’s a fine line between appropriate and inappropriate, but it better be a strong, clear line.' As a teacher, I took that advice to heart. As a writer, I asked, “'But what happens if the line isn’t strong or clear?”
Joseph Kenyon
