I will wake in the eyes of their children’s children

Here is a touching post by Laura Anne Gilman at Fantasy Book Cafe, about the influence of her father on her writing.

But it wasn’t until I began writing SILVER ON THE ROAD, the first of the Devil’s West novels, that I consciously sat down to think about what it meant to be a daughter to a father, to have that strangely powerful influence on every element of who you are, and all the ways it can go both wrong and right, even with the best of intentions and the most heartfelt of affections.
