I never decide or aim to write about anything in particular, instead I am at the mercy of the characters who enter my head, set up home and start talking. Their stories start to unfold, their voices get louder, and writing begins. I would describe my books as very character driven, and propelled forward by dialogue. To me, the characters are everything. If you cannot make a reader care about the characters, then a fantastic plot is worthless in my opinion. My work has been described as gritty, compelling, intense and emotional. If I can make a reader shed a tear or two, then I feel I have done my job. As for genre, I suppose the best category to slot me in would be realist fiction.
