I thought it might be fun to get to know you all a little better this week. So everyday I will tell you a little about myself and then ask for you to do the same. And I'll share some fall pictures, because some of you live in places where leaves don't change colors-- places that I will be incredibly jealous of come December. :)
I have written two books. The first was a fantasy for young adults--the result rests in a desk drawer, never to see the light of day again. The second, the book that my agent read and loved, is middle grade set in the real world (no vampires, fairies or wizards-- just regular kids).
I have ideas for stories in many different genres including, women's fiction, dystopian YA, YA and middle grade fantasy, picture books, and plain old middle grade.
I'm feeling like middle grade is the place for me right now because no matter how hard I try, my voice comes out eleven-years-old. So for now I think I am going to stick with middle grade, though I might try out YA again in a few years.
So my questions for you today are: What genre do you write? Have you written books, or do you have ideas, in other genres?
