Smashwords Interview

Do you enjoy writing? What is it about this art form that enchants you the most?
It’s a simple answer. Writers love writing, or we wouldn’t do it. Ask any writer and they will tell you they have to write. It is like breathing. It’s the interruptions we don’t like, the endless marketing and promoting, but it needs to be done.
Why have you chosen to write in the genre in which you write?
As for why I chose my genre, it just seemed to happen. I write about current events, drugs, politics, love, hate, murder, and the list goes on. The works in progress I have covers several genres. I think it is unrealistic to expect creative writers to stick to one genre. I have a couple of ghost stories in me, as well as intrigue and more espionage, and I want to try my hand at a vampire story. I see more and more authors writing in different genres, and I think if readers like your style of writing, they will buy your cross-genre work. I don’t stick to one genre when I read and I tend to follow authors, not genres per se, so I doubt it will be a stigma to cross genres as publishers at one time thought (or forced) in the past.
