F is for Fantasy
As you know, Fantasy is my favorite genre to write (although it's not my favorite genre to read...I actually don't have a favorite genre when I am reading for fun: I just want a well-written book). Although my works tend more towards modern fantasy, I tip my hat to those excellent writers of high fantasy over the years. Myth and magic are beautiful things, and playing with them in prose is one of the best parts of my job.
I am especially influenced by fairy tales and classical mythology. Tomorrow, I'll be blogging about one of my favorite fairy tale inspired authors, so make sure you check back!
