  1. Good interview, thanks for sharing, an interesting subject genres. I get fed up with folks looking down on us genre writers, and used to get quite upset, but I’m over that now, its each to their own, and there is a market for everything. you only have to look at the top TV charts.

    Personally, I’ll mostly be found writing speculative fiction, crime or romance, and often cross genres! Reading wise, anything goes…
