    Gotta go with "other," cause there weren't no category for Suspense/thriller

    I write romantic suspense, romantic comedy and nonfiction. Recently started playing around with short pieces--flash and quirky memoir stuff.

    I had to go with other, since like Michael, I lean more toward suspense, thriller. Right now I'm working on an inspirational suspense if that makes any sense.

    I write what I like to call realistic fantasy - no elves, dwarves, dragons, mythical creatures, magic, etc - based on a medieval type world.

    You don't have historical fiction. Of course I could have also voted for fantasy or YA since my YA series is epic fantasy.
