|I don't really have a favorite genre. I like any emotive writing style that helps shape my perspective in a developmental, evolutionary, or interesting manner. I guess I'm not the biggest fan of poetry that rhymes or follows a scheme. I can (and have) written in this manner and found it abhorrent to my thought process.
Although, I do have the utmost respect for poets that can write in this manner and still express coherent messages that don't seem contrived or altered in any manner. Stream-Of-Consciousness and Free Verse are usually the styles I end up utilizing with my work.
Actually, to be literal, my favorite type of style is my own. And it's constantly evolving as I evolve. I like to focus on things that are left on the back shelf, or that dwell in our subconscious. Instead of dwelling on the negative aspects of these difficult topics, I poke fun at them. The goal of my poetry is to challenge the unusual, quotidian, mundane aspects of every day life. I'm also very focused right now on mocking traditional, conventional or overly 'academic' poetry and its critics.
I am not a big fan of structure or any type of 'rules' when it comes to the arts. I believe inspiration stems from something immensely chaotic and very raw. If the Muse were personified, I believe it would be very unrestricted or, at least, polymorphous. Oh, yes, I like to make people laugh too. I'd rather offer people hope than despair. There's enough naturally occurring misery in this world.

I read a lot of true crime, but I also read a lot of fiction, particularly thrillers, as well as history and books on spirituality. A link to the Investigation Discovery site where some of my older stories appear is as follows: http://investigation.discovery.com/investigation/true-crime-stories/entries/entries.html

I write historical fiction because that's what I love. My love of writing began with attempting to write nonfiction family history before turning to fiction, so what I write conforms to known history. People I write about are either real people or characters that could have lived in that time and place. Events either really happened or could have.

However I have recently had a fiction short story published in an anthology:
To quote from the publishers press release:
Savor the Secret Sights, Sounds and Sensualities of Spain in Innoword Mediaís Inaugural Book Courting the Bull: An Anthology of Expatriate Literature in Spain
And an independent review:
"Next comes some short stories with Mediterranean Lady Seeks A Friend, a noir-ish tale of scams before the euro being my favorite. I just wish it were a bit longer."
I write both science fiction and mystery/suspense.
My work can be seen at http://www.acellis.net. There you can find links to the sites where my books can be purchased, as well as to a few free short stories and even my first published novel as a free ebook.
While I love all fiction, I specialize in Erotic Fiction. I've been working in the genre for over a year now, and I love it. I keep a blog where you can find links to all my work.
You can find it right here, and then just follow the links.
I canít be pushed into a box, I donít fit. If I stick to one genre Iíll get bored. Variety is the spice of life so Iíll write anything. My favorites are: Romance, Interracial Romance, Paranormal, Western, Time Travel, Vampires, Mysteries, Suspense or anything that interests me at the time. I also like writing from different points of view. One example: And Now I See was written from a sightless point of view. This e-book challenged my sense of touch, smell, and hearing. It was quite an unusual experience.
Some are my Books are available through: Lady Leo, Publishing, Red Rose Publishing, and Amira Press.

I enjoy reading many genres and for most of my life I thought I would become a science fiction writer...as it finally emerged, my first novel was a piece of urban fiction set in contemporary Britain.
To learn about me and what I write visit:
I like mixing historical figures and events with multimedia, but I also believe in a well made story with a beginning, middle and an end. Learning to love blogging.
My favorites genre is Sci-Fi. I just recently put the first chapter of my first 3 books in my sci-fi series on the website as samples - and samples of my other books. http://stevemessick.webs.com/
My favorite genre is definitely poetry and memoirs, but children's stories run a close second. I write a poetry blog called "I See the Bridge" and you can find it at:
http://icthebridge-moonspirit.blogspot.com and at present I'm a contributing poet on www.poetrydances.com. I've published three books of Poetry with Lulu.com
"A Bit of a Twist", "Constellations: A Collection of Heavenly Poetry" and "The Moon Is Still Yellow".
But my favorite project was my Children's Fairytale "Wanda the Wilopent" and you can check it out on Amazon.com. It's really my pride and joy so far.
W/my background, it's probably not surprising that I don't really have a favorite genre. I'm very moody both in my reading and my writing. I never know what's going to take hold of me. I will say that I'm drawn to a certain frontier aspect of things -- westerns, new-world science fiction and space opera, fantasy that isn't the same old thing... I like a sense of adventure as well as compelling characters. And I love to read authors who are brilliant with words.
