The Crystal Singer stories have inspired me tremendously giving me a belief in all manner of possibilities.

Has it inspired you?

I hate to see such a nice question ignored...

I can't say it has ever inspired me but the first book, CS, has always been one of my 'comfort' books, one to reach for when I don't want to have to think too much. I still enjoy it today after first reading it thirty years ago.

Some people find the character of Killashandra very arrogant and grating, but I have always seen her as a heroine, someone who never let things stand in the way of where she wanted to go. So I suppose she has been a bit of an inspiration over the years.

I've always enjoyed reading Crystal Singer. Killashandra is such an intense character that she always leaves me feeling like I can achieve more if I dedicate myself.

I am definitely trying to channel Killashandra right now in my life. She got things done, didn't wait around, didn't sit and cry. She took charge and always acted, making the most of everything. I think she's a great role model and offers a lot of inspiration.
