Books and Authors Who Have Influenced My Work
About a dozen years ago I was working out on a treadmill at the gym and simultaneously reading an excerpt of Elizabeth Berg's True to Form in Good Housekeeping magazine. Her writing blew me away. As it was always my intention to one day write a novel, I decided at that moment that the time was now, and began my writing journey. I started Blue Hydrangeas shortly afterward and life has not been the same. I also went on to read the rest of Berg's list. One of my greatest joys in life is discovering a new-to-me author and learning that she has a backlist that includes a dozen or more titles.
