Q: Most authors stick to one genre to help create their “brand” but you write in several. Why?
A: Good question. The simple answer is I write what I read and I am an eclectic reader. I grew up reading H.G. Wells, Edgar Allan Poe, Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes, Louis L’Amour, Tom Clancy and sports.
So I enjoy writing my own stories in those genres. Which is why I write sci-fi/fantasy, mysteries, political thrillers, westerns and historical sports non-fiction.
Each genre presents its own unique challenges in order to craft a story that draws the reader in and keeps them interested in staying all the way through to the end.
Over the next few days, I will address each genre, why I like it and tell you a little bit about how I created the story I have written in that genre and maybe a little bit about future stories planned in a specific genre too.
