Tina inspires me to write. To be funny, to be smart, and to embrace being both, as a woman.

Gilda inspires me to embrace my characters- even if people think they are over the top, to play harder than the boys, and to remember that this uncharted life is precious.

And Charlize. Reminds me that there is strength in beauty.

And, to unapologetically be true to who I am.
