All the best for New Year! I read an interview about some of your influences, and just wondered if James Tiptree, Jr (or her alias') were amongst any of your reading material early on?

She was--in the mid-seventies, before she revealed her true identity. Her fiction was powerful and had a unique voice--and I didn't care whether Tiptree was male or female.
