I'm the mother of six, a stay-at-home mom, remember using TV without such a thing as remotes... Not exactly the typical fantasy writer, I suppose!
Choosing fantasy was a no-brainer for me, though. My favorite authors - Andre Norton, C.S. Lewis, Zenna Henderson, among others.
I LOVE Star Wars, Star Trek (especially the new movies!), Lord of the Rings, and of course almost all of the Superhero movies lately. I'll never forget the excitement of seeing 'Star Trek' on my friend's color TV when it first came out!
Of course I made fantasy my genre (though I might occasionally write other things). Just take a look at my Kindle content sometime...I have more sci/fi and fantasy than anything else.
