Guest Post: Authors Who Have Inspired Me by Stacey Thompson-Geer

First, I wanted to thank Authors by Authors for having me today. I feel honored to share my work and my time with you guys. :)

I was asked to talk about authors that have inspired me. That is a long list and only getting longer as I find more authors who I love to read. I'll start with some of the authors I remember from when I was younger.

I think the biggest inspiration for me and my writing comes from Stephen King. I started in horror and still venture back into it from time to time. I love the way he captures you in a story and keeps you guessing. He really knows how to create a character you love to hate or really want to see get through what he puts them into. I have my old tattered copy of Firestarter sitting on my shelf. It's my favorite book from him.

I also have books from Kelley Armstrong. She was one of the first paranormal authors I read. I love her characters and how she constructs a story. The first book I read from her was Dime Store Magic. I read it in less than three days and moved on to Industrial Magic and the rest in her Otherworld Series. I'm reading her latest, Spell Bound right now.

Another author I enjoy is Vicki Petterson. She has a tough style that I find fun to read. I also love her personality. She is nice to those she runs across and is a fun person to talk to. If you can run into her at a convention, do it. She's a really great person.

These are only a few of the writers I enjoy or have inspired me. There are so many out there and so many to find each day. The total list is just too long to write out. :P

Silver Moon By Stacey Thompson-Geer

After 130 years, you’d think I would know better than to go looking for trouble, but I just can’t seem to help myself. The council wants me to catch a werewolf. I just want to paint my nails. Rose is a bitchy sarcastic vampire that ends up hunting a werewolf in, of all places, Las Vegas. She finds very quickly that things are not going to go as planned.
