Decadence, beauty, and the female author who inspired me the most

By far and away, the woman author who has inspired me more than anyone else is Anne Rice. Reading her Vampire Chronicles as a child and then a teenager taught me so much about conveying beauty through prose, and sensuality independent of sexuality, and a lot about certain slices of history in Europe and New Orleans. If reading Ernest Hemingway is like eating beef jerky, reading Anne Rice is like having a beautiful Italian merengue–too rich, too thick, too descriptive, but beautiful all the same.

Who’s your favorite female author, dear reader?
