    There are many ways I can answer this question. As an adoptee, I have to say my adoptive parents have been incredibly influential in my life in many ways. As a writer, I'm influenced (more inspired, really) by Stephen King, Julia Cameron, Jen Lancaster, and my high school English teacher, Mr. Hoke.

    My grandmother. She always found the best in people and found ways to deal with the hard times. I only remember her being upset once and I spend a lot of time with her. I've always wondered how she kept so calm and collected.

    I try to pay attention to mistakes made by others around me, and then go out of my way to not make the same mistakes. I read a lot to acquire information that I combine with life experience to equate to my version of "wisdom" - so I guess successful, mainstream authors are the most influential people in my life.

    My Nona (In English, Grandmother).  Someday I will write about this most incredible person.   She rose from slavery as a marble floor scrubber in a Sicilian nunnery to American citizen and mother of eight.  She had more courage and intelligence than anyone I have ever met.  She also was a magician because although she had no money, she managed to feed the whole family the most delectable Italian meals imaginable.  "What's in this sauce, Nona?"  I would ask.  "Chicken", she replied.  I think Chicken is the Italian word for squirrells, pigeons, rabbits etc.  Whatever it was in the sauce....it was spectacular!!!!
