Colleen McCullough influenced me many years ago with her historical fiction. As for other aspects of my creative abilities, I was also influenced by numerous magnificent comic artists back in the days before women broke into comics: Mike Grell, George Perez and more.
Since 2007 I haven't been as voracious a reader as I once was. With a historical fiction and a new science fiction series in the works, I am more concerned these days with developing my own unique voice.
I will be featured in a number of book reviews and internet radio podcasts this year. You can read my work online and find out even more about me at http://houseofthemuses.com
