She has said that there is no one that she tries to mimic in style and that she doesn’t remember reading a book when she was younger which inspired her to write her own. Instead, she says that her biggest influence has been philosophers and their writings. She says that each of the characters in her books is a literary experiment in conflicting philosophies and psychologies. All of her books are punctuated with mythological references so the Greek myths and tragedies must also have made a huge impact on Kenyon as an author.
