What we will not write

We all have our limits.

Your favorite bestselling authors are a creative group. They explore more than one genre, and often find places where genres overlap, like romantic mysteries or historical fantasy.

But there are some places even these intrepid scribes won’t go.

DelSheree Gladden

Young adult, new adult, romance, fantasy and more

For me, I stay away from anything historical, not because I don’t enjoy history but because the level of research required is something I don’t have the time or patience for.

Alan McDermott

Action thrillers

I don’t think I’ll ever write anything other than thrillers, simply because that’s the only genre that interests me.  It’s not that I have anything against romance, or horror, or science fiction, but to know your genre you have to have read a lot of it, and those just aren’t the kind of books I would buy.

Gae-Lynn Woods

Mystery and thriller

I don’t think I could write science fiction. I’m amazed at authors who can create new worlds and technologies, but I don’t think I’ve got that kind of creativeness in me.

Toby Neal

Mystery, thriller, romance and memoir

I could never write horror. I am too easily creeped out! I’d scare myself!

Kayla Dawn Thomas

Romance and romantic comedy

I would never consider writing graphic horror. I get weirded out easily, and letting those kinds of images loose in my head would wreck me.

Samreen Ahsan

Historical fantasy and paranormal romance

For me, I’d never think of trying science fiction because I know my mind doesn’t work that way. It just wouldn’t work. Another genre is horror. I personally don’t enjoy horror movies, nor reading it so I would also not think of scaring my readers as well.

Get a taste of Samreen’s writing.

David C. Cassidy

Horror

I couldn’t write legal or military thrillers. While I love to watch movies of that type, I couldn’t write them if I tried. I really admire those who can.

Are you brave enough to sample David’s stories?

Caleb Pirtle III

Thriller, literary fiction and memoir

I could never write fantasy although I love to read it. I just don’t have the patience to build worlds and create cultures that don’t exist.

M.L. Doyle

Military mystery, fantasy, memoir and erotica

While I have helped other women veterans write their memoirs, I will never write a memoir of my life. I have had lots of ups and downs, excitement and loss, joys and accomplishments, but I far prefer to use those experiences in a factionalized way than to lump it all together in the story of my life. I truly admire those who can sit down and put their life on paper for the world to see. The idea of spending hour after hour recounting my story sounds worse to me than wearing a hair shirt over a third degree burn.

Raine Thomas

Young adult and new adult fiction and romance

I’m a person who never says never! I’ve already written and co-written books in several genres I never thought would interest me, including Sci-Fi, military historical, and nonfiction business. If a story enters my mind and I feel the passion to write it, I will!

Scott Bury

Biography, mystery and historical fantasy

For me, I think it would have to be Highland romance, because if I were to write another romance, it would have to be satirical, and I think satirical Highland romances have probably been overdone already.
