This is my brain. This is my brain on writing. Enjoy.
I have been influenced throughout my life by great writing. My love of books started in the fantasy realm. Of particular note, I draw inspiration from Redwall (the series) by Brian Jacques, The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien, The White Dragon (The Dragonriders of Pern series) by Anne McCaffrey, Watership Down by Richard Adams, The Eye of the World (The Wheel of Time series) by Robert Jordan, and The Lion, The Witch, And The Wardrobe (Narnia series) by C.S. Lewis.
I am currently into books on the craft of writing, including On Writing by Stephen King, The Art of Memoir by Mary Karr, Bird By Bird by Anne Lamott, On Writing Well by William Zissner, and Eats, Shoots, and Leaves by Lynne Truss.
