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.

Laini Taylor is a Young Adult fantasy author most known for Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy, which is now on book 2. This was one of my favorite books from 2011. It's urban fantasy for the YA set, a mix of contemporary setting and a magical world. Our herione Karou leaps from the page whether she's trekking around Prague with her sketchbook, or traveling through mysterious doorways to shops run by creatures from another world.
The author usually sports bright pink hair, and she also an artist. Find out more about her here!
