June 5 question:
Of all the genres you read and write, which is your favorite to write in and why?
I ghost write for artists and execs, I freelance when it comes to journalism and basic copy, but my all time high is reading and writing noir mystery novels.
1. Tying up loose ends.
When in life do you get to just wrap up all your problems? Yes, it takes a ton of plot preparation. Yes, you can't be assured it'll turn out the way you thought it would, but you have to go down to Hell to come back up and re-emerge from places where most wont take two steps out the door.
2. Noir mystery is great for satire and political commentary. It's easier to state your position when you sneak it into an unsolved mystery. There's a reason there's more fact in fiction.
3. My heroines serve as great female remodels.
This helps me sleep at night. I keep them flawed, but in the end they always maintain an unshakable moral compass and a deep inner strength.
What are your favorite genres? Please leave a comment below. I will always return comments unless a house falls on me or I'm abducted by aliens.
