Soft sci-fi that's heavy on the world building, and character-driven pieces that are heavy on the psychology, with hints of an odd, not-quite-our-world in the background.

I love many different types of writing but my favorite might be children's books!

When writing, I have the exact same preferences as when reading. I've always liked fantasy and science fiction, especially those stories that focuses on building literary universes while trying to be as "realistic" as possible. Outside of that, I like detective novels and thrillers with action elements. In fact, when writing novels of the first two genres that I mentioned, I prefer to add elements of the last two to make them more "complete".

I tend to write in the genres I enjoy reading. At the moment I’m really into reading romantic suspense and erotic romance. Lol what can I say, I like plenty of heat with my romance.

I have also begun reading regency romance and it’s a new type of romance for me.
