^ Isaac Asimov. Sadly, he is dead, and he passed away long before I got into his works as a teenager. =( But on the living side, I would LOVE to meet Neil Gaiman! ^^) I love his work so much! And Terry Pratchett!
> I feel like I've just run a marathon, when, in fact, the only physical exertion I have put myself to is that of making tomato sauce...from scratch. Yeah, kitchens tend to hate me. Marie, I read multiple things at a time too, because otherwise I finish a book almost in between blinks. That said, I have just gobbled Boneshaker, by Cherie Priest, from end to end, almost without stopping, and I have just gotten over that feeling of waking up from a dream, the one you get when you are forced to rip yourself out of a book's world, and return to reality. =( I would highly recommend it, though, to anyone who likes fantasy, steampunk, zombies, and pirates!
v Which stories (or writers, if that's easier) inspired you to write?

^Which stories or authors inspire me to write will be Jane Austen for her historical works of fiction. Diane HoH for her YA Horror Thriller novels, Anne rice books for the supernatural sense of inspiration from her books, Tamora Peirce for the Immortals series which inspires me to write my own fantasy series. Wicked by Gregory Maguire, Robin McKinley's Beauty and the beast retold books. Elizabeth Chandler for her YA Mystery Crime series of Dark Secrets, Lynn Ewing of her Daughters of the moon, sisters of Isis, and sons of the dark series which inspires em to write my own series as well.
>Basically i have to see each of them are good though not much of J.K. Rowling. but i do like Heather Gram books. James Paterson, Dean Koontz books too.
V What is your favorite Horror Thriller novel from one of your favorite authors?
