Speculative Fiction describes best what I write right now.
What is Speculative Fiction?
Speculative fiction is a broad category of narrative fiction that includes elements, settings, and characters created out of imagination and speculation and not based on reality and everyday life. It encompasses the genres of science fiction, fantasy, science fantasy, horror, alternative history, and magic realism.
I love story. Growing up, I was an only child so story entertained and gave me companions. Story has always felt like a friend to me. These authors have given me some of my greatest inspiration for the genres I write in and inspired me to write for more than just my own pleasure. I write because I love to read. I have always been a voracious reader; I read a bit of everything really.
I lean toward sci-fi, sci-fi fantasy, urban fantasy, any fantasy really. I love these genres because it allows me to disappear within it and experience other or alternate worlds. I write because I like experiencing my characters, the storytelling craft and entertaining others with my stories. It is like a secret world that exists alongside ours. I like being part of it.
