where the writers are

Favorite Books

These are only a few of my favorite books: THE GOLDEN NOTEBOOK by Doris Lessing A ROOM OF HER OWN by Virginia Woolf MRS. DALLOWAY by Virginia Woolf THE HOURS by Michael Cunningham ROSE by Martin Cruz Smith TURTLE MOON by Alice Hoffman POSSESSION by A.S. Byatt

What I'm Reading

Madame Castel's Lodger by Frances Parkinson Keyes A Thread of Grace by Mary Doria Russell

Favorite Authors

While there are many authors whose books I really love, for "favorite" I think in terms of specific books rather than all the work of one author. For example, I love many but not all of Tom Stoppard's plays.

Influences

Everything and anything. Good books as well as bad books help me improve my own writing. Plus I read books about writing. I'm always trying to learn more.
