Which author has influenced you most, as a writer?
It could be an author who wrote a 'how to write' book, or it could be a fiction/non-fiction piece that left such an impact that it spurred you into a writing career.
I am a huge fan of two people .Both write different genres but i like them both. One is Paulo Coelho and the second is Dan Brown.
Isaac Asimov inspired me the most, especially during my younger years and when he was still alive.
Nowadays, I'm looking at Douglas E Richards for a great deal of up to date inspiration!
When I read your question a name popped instantly into my mind. There are many authors of the past who have influenced me in positive ways yet the first name that came to me is a contemporary.
I can say, without a doubt, that Randy Godwin is the author who has inspired me more than any other.
When I read one of Randy's fiction stories it draws me into a place where I feel a part of the life of his characters, as if I know them personally. His style of writing stirs so many emotions within me and inspires me to write my own stories. I am always left with deep emotions and deep respect for Randy Godwin's divine gift of talent as a writer. He is truly blessed.

Good writing won't save a bad story. Bad writing won't necessarily kill a good story. Thoughts?I read something along these lines recently and I can't remember who wrote it. King? Hemingway? There's no excuse for poor writing, but I'm thinking about the value of a good...

Hi, everyone. Thank you in advance for reading; this is a little long-winded.When I was a kid, I loved writing books. I'd sit at the computer for hours, typing. I knew I was going to be a writer one day. Even my elementary school teacher said I had talent. When I was 22 I got a publishing contract...
