Agents, editors, far more successful writers all tell me the same thing: it helps to stick to one genre. People who like that genre and you will stick with you if you keep to that part of the playground. Although I tend to fit under the broad umbrella of “fantasy” in my work, I can’t say there’s a lot in common between my works.

My first novel was a fairy tale, set in an approximation of medieval Scandinavia. I’ve written a comic gothic novel and a slightly supernatural thriller, while my forthcoming novel is a science fiction/urban fantasy/shamanic journey/road trip/retelling of the descent of Inanna.

Yeah, my publisher went with “science fiction” for the label, but we added a catchy new tagline, ‘shamans vs aliens’.
