Author Shorts: What authors have inspired/informed/shaped your own work?

author shorts2I’ve asked a variety of authors to answer a few questions that I pose. Of course, I love a twist. All answers had to be no more than two sentences. Brevity presents a greater challenge.

For me the process was delightful as well as insightful. I love that authors can express our personalities and style in so few words. Just check out the varied responses to the first question!

The question: What authors have inspired/informed/shaped your own work?

Martyrs“It’s impossible to consider inspirational work without immediately thinking of Samuel R. Delany. James Purdy also leaps to mind.”

Robert Dunbar, author of Martyrs & Monsters

JavaDavis“I love the terseness of Ernest Hemingway, the descriptions of a journey from Robert Pirsig, character development from Marge Piercy, and from YA author Judy Blume, her ability to simplify the complex without dumbing it down beyond the reach of an adult.  They are my muses.”

Java Davis, author of Commune: A Social Experiment

“I enjoy reading most genres as well as non-fiction, so I like to think that everything I’ve read has influenced me in some way.  Ursula Le Guin, Ann MaCaffrey, Terry Pratchett, Isaac Asimov to name a few.  At the same time though, I think that we’re all unique when the time comes to put pen to paper.”

“Ray Bradbury for sure because within the sci-fi and horror of his writing, he really touches on human emotion.”
