I was raised in the south all of my life, but there is very little southern influence in my writing. Most of it is derived from the celtic writings and European styles. I have always had a great love for the written word and hope to eventually have the time to sit and write a novel. I have had many ideas, but with 2 small children and being a single mom...well, most of my day is already spoken for before I even wake up.
Most of my literary influences have been Walt Whitman, Edgar Allen Poe, William Shakespeare, and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. I also have taken fancy to Lord Byron Shelley.
My musical influences which set the tone for my writing are anything from classical to dramatic opera and even a little celtic influence.
