1. Congratulations, Kindra. It looks gorgeous. I love your writing style too. I’ve added it to my reading list. I detect a lot of bleakness and humour in your writing (a favourite combination of mine). May I ask who your influences are?

    1. Thank you, David! It means so very much to me that you’ve added my work to your reading list. My novel, you will find, is acerbic, yet hopeful–such is my life.

      I’m a realist. So as much as I love comedy, romance, and happy endings, I also appreciate, and respect the dirt that’s thrown at us human beings. More than anything, I love works that are full of raw emotion–sad, brash, irreverent, and hateful.

      My favorite novel is The Bell Jar, by Sylvia Plath, followed by The Catcher in the Rye, by J.D. Salinger. John Steinbeck is another of my influences; I love his work, The Red Pony, as well as, Of Mice and Men.

      1. Yes, I often believe it’s all about the whole maddening mix: the light and the dark, the sweet and the sour, the ecstasy and the heartbreak swallowed together, inseparable from each other. And we should acknowledge it all in equal amounts. Good to know you appreciate this too. Those are some great influences. And as I said, you have a brilliant style that suggests someone who understands the whole maddening mix of life. Good luck with it and whatever you decide to follow it with!
