Reading my bio, huh?
Real life sucks. I bet you feel like that sometimes, maybe even right now. That’s why I write fantasy. I need to escape depression, bitterness, bills, illness…I could go on, but you get it. In the pages of fiction, I can slay the dragons, triumph over the bad guys, be immortal, and never struggle with love handles. For a short time, I can let it all go, and be everything I can’t be in real life. Maybe you’re hurting right now. Maybe you’re in the waiting room of the hospital, or just stuck in traffic. I’ve brought a portal. Come with me…Let’s ditch this crappy popsicle stand and go somewhere great, where we can forget all this, at least for a while.
That’s why I write. I’m not an author, I’m an escape artist.

The Darkangel Trilogy by Meredith Ann Pierce were the most impressionable for me because they were the books that taught me to love reading.
I don't have a top ten list, I might have to think about that. :)
Tears of the Moon by Nora Roberts is my all time favorite contemporary romance.
The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand, Gargoyle by Shelley Martin, Indelible by Dawn Metcalf, Phantom by Susan Kay, almost anything written by Tanith Lee, Vows of Revenge by J.F. Ridgley, and Perfume by Patrick Suskind are a few, off the top of my head, that have become favorites of mine in the last few years.
Thanks for the great question, Quinesia!

“People who don't read fiction really scare me.”
Tenaya Jayne

“Her smile flashed cruelly in the darkness. “You’re right, I’m not for you. I belong to myself. And you, like all the others, think you could hurt me so easily. You’ve got it backward. The pain comes from me. I bring it. I make it. So if you’re going to run, run because you’re afraid of how I will hurt you. Not the other way around. And if you do run, don’t ever come near me again. Just because I’m strong doesn’t mean I want a man who’s weak.”
