I have been writing for as long as I can remember.
But it’s only lately that I’ve realised how much my writing has been influenced by the great women of literature who have gone before me.
Then there is Nicola Morgan.* She has influenced my writing so much more than the rest, via her latest book ‘Write to be Published’, and for that I am eternally grateful. With the guidance her book has given me I have completely overhauled my first novel and I am now confident ‘Rising from Ashes’ will ‘hook’ a literary agent once complete.
But the role women play in my writing doesn’t end there because the majority of the characters in my short stories and other works are female.
I love creating strong feminine characters that just battle through life’s toughest trials, so much so I do it automatically. It has never been a conscious decision to make my main character female, it just always seems inevitable.
With literature like this, I’m proud to be a woman. Now who’s your favourite woman author?
