Influences

I have been influenced by all of the books I have ever read, poetry and prose, from Nancy Drew to T.S. Eliot. The influences on my romance writing were the Silhouette romances of the early '80s. However, all the great novels of love and romance from Jane Austen, the Brontes, etc. had their effect.
