Always had a special place in my heart for Fantasy, and I probably always will.

As a reader, I enjoy everything that I can get my hands on and that can get its wordy hands on my attention: philosophy, religious/A-religious readings, fantasy, adventure, psychological thrillers, books on astronomy, chemistry, history, biographies,fantasy-usually the dark stuff, and horror is my favorite genre- I don't think I could carry on as well if horror novelists everywhere suddenly went on strike.

As a writer, my three best loves in genre are dark fantasy, science fiction thriller/horror and philosophical horror/fantasy.

I am a horror nut, I own that.

I believe I do paranormal best. It has always been easiest for me to write. As a reader, I can read just about anything.

I believe that I write more young adult books, since that's all I read and that's what comes most easily to me. Mostly, in that genre, I write realistic fiction. Though lately I've been writing fiction that could at first seem real, but has fantastic elements.

I like everything-as long as it has romance in it. I admit it, I'm a romance junkie but these days, who isn't?

My favourite genre is mystery, anytime anyday. But I also love a good romance story, but I'm not into the bedroom stuff. I just love to see how relationships progress. I am very unlikely to read horrors, unless they're like the Goosebumps kind, and that's mostly comedy even.

Right now, I am working on historical fiction. I'm delving into Ancient Greece. However, I also enjoy Tudor England. When I am not working on historical fiction, I write a lot of nonfiction. I like to switch between the genres to keep my brain sharp. For some reason, doing that accomplishes that particular result for me.

I started out wanting to write historical romance, which quickly turned into historical erotica. Funny thing is the first think I published was a contemporary fetish story about voyeurism.

I'm a softy for romance and erotica. I love love historical, but I'll read pretty much anything in the genre. I'll critique/edit anything.

Historical fiction is my favorite, in writing and reading. I am a huge history buff, so the ability to travel back in time through the written word is amazing to me. I write a lot of contemporary fiction as well, though. It just depends on what I'm inspired to do at the time.

Me, my favorite genres are fictions because of the impossible things that eventually became possible, i love action as well because of the amazing stunts that the characters can do, and thrillers that are giving me goosebumps while reading.
