10 Things – Auhtors who Influenced Elizabeth Nobel
Thank you to Prism Book Alliance for hosting me today.
Ten authors who’ve influenced me (that’s a lot!), in no particular order:
Glenda Larke, Greg Bear and Kim Stanley Robinson because they create such wonderful, well researched worlds.
Stephen King, not because of his books but because of his thoughts on writing and being a writer in general. I read an article by him once long ago where he said something along the lines of ‘I write because I can not write.’ That always stuck with me.
Gene Roddenberry wrote scripts that really pushed boundaries…okay I have to say it, they boldly went where others hadn’t gone and he as a cool guy.
Michio Kaku, Carl Sagan, E.C. Krupp and Stephen Hawking, they see the universe in a different way and their writings are an adventure. I don’t think there has been a single thing I’ve written as an adult that I didn’t turn to at least one of their works during my research.
Dick Francis because he was a steeplechase jockey turned writer.
From the Publisher:
Wanting to end his pattern of choosing controlling and abusive men, Vladimir ‘Val’ Mihalic figures it’s better to live alone than live in fear. Just when things are settling down—his biggest trouble recently is a Kentucky Derby hopeful that won’t load into a starting gate—his best friend Janelle’s violent ex-boyfriend kidnaps her. After she’s seriously injured in a car wreck, Wyatt Harig, Janelle’s estranged father, comes around to tend to his daughter. Despite Val’s determination to avoid relationships, Wyatt interests him in ways that make his resolve waver. As complications and repercussions pile on in the aftermath of Janelle’s kidnapping—including a gambling charge and a murder—Wyatt and Val must work together to seek answers. And the closer they get to each other, the more Val wants them to stay that way.
About the Author
Elizabeth Noble started telling stories before she actually knew how to write, and her family was very happy when she learned to put words on a page. Those words turned into fan fiction that turned into a genuine love of M/M romance fiction. Being able to share her works with Dreamspinner is really a dream come true. She has a real love for all things sci-fi, futuristic, and supernatural and a bit of an unnatural interest in a super-volcano in Wyoming.
Elizabeth has three grown children and is now happily owned by an adorable mixed breed canine princess named Rosie, and two cats, Murphy and Yeti. She lives in her native northeast Ohio, the perfect place for gardening, winter and summer sports (go Tribe!). When she’s not writing she’s working as a veterinary nurse, so don’t be surprised to see her men with a pet or three who are a very big part of their lives.
