Welcome to the Blogging From A to Z Challenge!
My theme for 2013 is Influential Women Authors.
My definition of influential is any author, classic or modern, who has inspired writers, readers, or the larger scope of culture. Some are personal favorites, or have special meaning to me.
What this list is not: a list of the most influential writers of all time. Rather, this is a collection of influential writers, corresponding with each day's letter.

M: L.M. Montgomery
What makes the series so timeless is Anne's stubborn tomboyishness, and her escapades with her friends--her kindred spirits. She's silly and adventurous, which makes her someone to root for when she seems to have everything set against her from the start.
The L.M. Montgomery Institute, located at the University of Prince Edward Island, organizes a bi-annual conference about the author. Several sites, including her Cavendish home, have been named historical sites and tourist destinations.
Have you seen the Anne of Green Gables series, or read any of the books?
