where the writers are

Influences

This is so hard. I grew up reading mysteries, adored the works of Agatha Christie, Mary Renault and many others. As a novelist today I marvel at people like Ian McEwan, Kazuo Ishiguro, Dennis Johnson, Kiran Desai and so forth, but I wouldn't call them influences. Except in that they inspire me to continue trying to be a better writer.
