When I was thinking of authors that inspire me- I couldn’t stop smiling. There is something so magical and awesome about discovering an author that resonates with you. As a writer, reader, traveller and history student- I’m always on the hunt for those voices that make you think or feel in profound ways. Because of that, here are five authors that inspire me.
When we think of great science fiction cities, what comes to mind are futuristic places. This makes sense, as alot of people’s perception about science fiction deals with the many metropolises that exist such as Tokyo, Japan. However, let’s dig deeper.

Maybe the writer had the wrong political opinions. Or, maybe there was a rape scene. Maybe there wasn’t enough female characters or *insert minority here*. Either way- the crime of being problematic is enough to be ‘cancelled.’ It’s as if that writers must write in a politically correct way if they don’t want to deal with the backlash of entitled fans. Frankly, it’s boring.
