Inspired by Poetry

Speaking of poetry…A writing mentor once told me that the best writers are the best thinkers; they have a gift for observing people and life that translate in their prose.  I think this is especially true of poets.  I have stumbled across poems that encapsulate an idea or thought or feeling so well that it moves me to tears.  You will see this influence in both my novels.  In The Descended, Kieran’s character feels kinship with Richard Lovelace:

‘If I have freedom in my love

   And in my soul am free,

  Angels alone, that soar above,

    Enjoy such liberty.’
