I got a moment at a recent meeting of the Hollywood chapter of Sisters in Crime to ask a few writers who inspired them to write and this is what they said:
Leslie Budewitz and Laura DiSilverio:
SJ Rozan author of the best-selling Lydia Chin series, said, "Since I'm here in Los Angeles, I'll say Raymond Chandler."
And Elaine Viets of the Dead End Job series said, "Agatha Christie."
What writers inspire you?
