I love to read/write both fiction and nonfiction. I like to write fiction because it takes you away. It's like your own reality, you get to create anything. It's a freedom that doesn't otherwise exist. I also like when others read my stories and tell me that they can relate. I've been told too, that I write about things that could happen to anyone. I must say that I also like to keep a little truth in my fiction.
I've never written a fantasy or science fiction story. But they do seem to be popular. Many writers are getting notoriety from these books. Most recently Twilight and let's not forget one of my favorites Lord of the Rings. I can't seem to write these types of stories, I don't think my creativity extends that far.
Then there's the romance genre and some of my favorite authors from Terri McMillan to Nora Roberts. I'm crazy for a romance any day. I can't leave out historical romance and all the dukes that are outsmarted or outwitted by their counterparts. They take me away every time. It's just something about the regency era that I've grown to like a lot. Now a good mystery always get's me to edge of my seat. There are quite a few I've read more than once.
Let's not forget nonfiction. I like to write/read this because we all need a dose of the truth. I have seven children and love to share. I also am a fan of baby books and parenting. This is what I write, more specifically it's about childbirth right now. It's something close to my heart. I have an untold story that'll be shared with the world once I'm published (nothing like being positive).
What's your favorite fiction book? Do you have a favorite author?
