My novel, THE KING OF SILK, grew from an idea I had been mulling for some time: what knowledge we each possess could we transfer to another culture or another time? And what would be the consequences? So, here you have a historical novel which explores those ideas from the viewpoint of a modern businessman snatched away to 15th century Italy.
I like the historical fiction genre, but my current work in progress lies in the paranormal realm. I've heard folks say they write for markets which are hot. But with long lead times in the publishing biz, you never know what's going to be hot when your product is released. I figure you just have to go where the story leads you.
