Most of the stories that invade my brain are either SciFi or Horror... which can be combined of course.

My early novels were (fictionalized) autobiographies... and I had a hard time placing them into categories. In the end, I marketed them as thriller / action & adventure. YA might have been something I should have tired, but there were some adult themes (murder), so I didn't go there.

Someone once told me that creative inspirations are sort of like bubbles floating through the ether. When those bubbles hit our head we chose to act on them or not. For myself, when a story forms and sticks in my mind it becomes an obsession... genre doesn't matter, the story drives me to tell it.
