Fifteen Authors Meme

Donna Atkins just tagged me on Facebook for a Fifteen Authors Meme (list fifteen authors in no more than fifteen minutes who profoundly influenced you), and I thought I'd share my list. I actually read hers before going to bed, but my brain started to work on mine rather than letting me relax, so I decided to just do the damn thing and be done with it. It turned out to be a lot more fun than I'd thought, particularly because I remembered so many authors and works I loved long ago.

1. Virginia Woolf
2. William Shakespeare
3. Sydney Taylor
4. Marge Piercy
5. Jane Austen
6. Kathryn Lynn Davis
7. Dr. Seuss
8. John Irving
9. Emily Dickinson
10. Margaret Mitchell
11. Jefrrey Eugenides
12. Homer
13. Christopher Moore
14. Julie Garwood
15. Calvin Trillin

What's your list look like?
