Influences

My favorite authors are Frank Peretti and Francine Rivers. However, I also love the classics like Jane Austen, George Orwell, Margaret Atwood and of course, Shakespeare.I am a bit of a Sci-fi - fantasy buff, so even though my work does not technically fit into these categories, there is often an unexprected twist and certainly a hint of the supernatural. Also, as a Christian author, my faith greatly influences my writing, although it is not pedantic or preachy in style, and may contain elements that mainstream Christian fiction would not find acceptable.
