 AUGUST 3RD- QUESTION - When you set out to write a story, do you try to be more original or do you try to give readers what they want?

I write both contemporary and historical fiction. When I write historical fiction, such as western fiction, I try to be original, but must work in the parameters of a historical period to make the characters and story line authentic and give my readers a realistic story. I believe when writing contemporary fiction, there is more latitude to be original and unique because you can create your own settings, time periods, and characters that fit into your plot and story line.

  1. Sounds like a balance that must be hit. I think most genres are like that.
