I love your writing voice; it just draws me right in. Who is your favorite author (living or dead)? And have they influenced you? If so, how?
I don't know that I have one favorite author, but I can tell you a few of the authors who have influenced me. Carole Maso, Guy Gavriel Kay, Sharon Kay Penman, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Michael Chabon, and Jude Deveraux, among others. And I almost left out Fanny Burney but she's a big one!
