Yep, I'm a fan-girl. I may be an aspiring author but, I'm also a fan-girl. I can't wait to get my hands on Kim Harrison's new Hollows series release, "Black Magic Sanction."

If I haven't mentioned it before, Kim was actually the person that inspired me to try my hand at writing. No, I don't know her. I've never even met her before. I only know her like most people, though her books, website and blog.

So, how did Kim inspire me to start writing? I read her books and absolutely fell in love with her characters, her style, her world building, pacing and not to mention her Delicious tension she was able to create.

Because of Ms. Harrison and some not so subtle prodding from a few close friends, my short story "Raven's Transformation" should be coming out this month. (Sigh)

So, I owe a big thank you to Ms. Harrison for being such an awesome writer and inspiration for aspiring writers like myself.

Who or what inspired you to start writing?

You know very well who inspired me to write Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance: The goddess & The Rebel. Yep, Sherrilyn Kenyon & Kim Harrison made me believe that I could do it.

I read Kenyon's biography and I told myself, "Wow! This woman went through so much before getting published. Now look at all she has done." Then I stumbled into Kim's style and rejoiced to see that "weird was good!" lol

But I think that what keeps fueling my inspiration are my dear friends. You, Marcia, and a few other lovely people who believe in me!

It was Laurell K. Hamilton and KIm Harrison for me. Kim Harrison in particular. I don't know how her writing touched me and made me think I could write but, it did.

They may have started me writing but, it's friends like you and Marcia that have made me believe that I could actually do it:)
