|Historical Romance: its all about the covers|
But people are dynamic. We rarely stay with the same interests forever. Those that do are lucky, particularly writers. I discovered paranormal romance as a reader and loved writing it. So I identified myself as a writer of contemporary paranormal romances.
...until I moved onto something else.
I found dark, urban fantasy and really grasped onto it. I very much like writing in first person and feel I'm a much stronger writer when I follow that point of view. It plays to my strengths as a writer and I have to say I had more success in writing the genre than any other previously. So, I'm a writer of dark urban fantasy.

Thus is my quandary as a writer. I don't fit any definition and I've come a long way from what I started at as a writer. Trying to find where I'm comfortable writing is not easy. When I say I've not been writing it isn't exactly true, I've been writing quite a bit just not finishing. Struggling to find the writer I want to be has been difficult. That I can at least recognize this as a big issue for me I think is a major step to getting back into the rhythm of writing.
