This Blog Hop is hosted by Katie over at

This Saturday’s Question:

What is your favorite classic novel and is there anything in particular you take from it that you hope to see in your own writing?

Classics are timeless. They can be read and appreciated by several generations of readers. The classics for me are Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, and my all time favorites classics are fairy tales. I hope I carry elements of all my favorite authors on my writing journey, that it steeps into the very essence of my stories. After all what you love and cherish is what makes you, YOU.

                                                                               Charles Dickens writes lush and vivid details. You can feel the scene unfold around you.


                                                                                                               Fairy Tales are rich in magic and belief beyond reason. 

Only time will tell if I achieve this magic brew in my novels, but it is what I dream of achieving every time I sit down and write.

How about you? What elements do you carry into your stories? Who is classic for you?

I weave myth, magic and fairy tales into my paranormal novels. I would rather spend my days with sirens and shapeshifters than live in the real world.
