I love to read.I probably don't read as broadly as some.. I read mainly non fiction (socio/political commentary, history, science, environmentalism, spirituality) and my fiction generally entails just the romance/supernatural/fanta
sy genre.. with a bit of Science Fiction and odds and ends thrown in there.
Romance is my primary fiction genre.. but I am more sophisticated in my Romance reading. I occasionally pick up a regency.. cause it is what is at the library.. but I prefer supernatural/fantasy romance..
A lot of Romance writers are breaking out of the tight genre and writing more supernatura/fantasy stuff that happens to have romance or lust throw in. They started in formula romance and then got a following and stretched their wings.. Some ... Like CL Wilson wrote excellent fantasy that happen to be a romance from the start.
My Favorite writers are Karen Marie Moning (originally of Cincinnati) who originally wrote more "formula" romances with a time travel twist.. there has been a running theme in her world that she created that has evolved into a full blown Fantasy/Supernatural/ Drama .. It is REALLY GOOD and I want to talk more about this later.
I also like CL Wilson.. and I will talk more about her later too.
But I have to leave work now...

What is fiction? Why am I drawn so much to the fiction I read?
I just finished reading Fae Fever. I Don't want to give away spoilers so if you want to read it and haven't.. stop reading now.( Collapse )
