Re: What inspired you to write in your genre?

My dad used to tell me stories about young women who did amazing things, went on adventures, saw the world. It just made sense to write about adventure, and girls like the ones I used to think of when I was scared. You know a story has been told right when you want to live up to the character.

Everyone deserves a cat :) Cat's for everyone! They're perfect companions for reading. Keep you warm by lying on your lap while you get so involved in the novel you don't notice the fire went out/radiator died/power outage
