March Madness is rolling along! I continue to be excited with the line-up of guests I will be sharing with you. Today marks a first for my little blog, my first guest post! I'd like to thank Regina Puckett for giving her time and talent to visit with us today! She will give some insight on why she writes in different genres.
Writing Different Genres
For some reason I felt the urge to spread my wings at the beginning of 2012. I had this crazy notion I wanted to try my hand at writing horror. For years I have been writing sweet romances. I love being able to tell the story of two people finding their soul mates and having them fight through thick and thin to finally fall madly in love before I write those final two words, “The End”. There’s just no feeling like being the person responsible for creating a little fictional happiness.

So there I was with my very own 2012 challenge but uncertain about how to go about accepting it. Fortunately my oldest daughter, Rhonda, is obsessed with ghost hunting. Where Charity and I love writing, Rhonda loves sitting around in old dark, abandoned buildings waiting to hear or see something from dead people. I used her love of ghost hunting to write my first short horror story, Mine. She has visited an old abandoned hospital here in Tennessee many times in her quest for discovering what dead people have to say to the living. This hospital is supposed to be one of the most haunted structures in Tennessee, and after hearing about her nights spent there I believe it very well could be. Happily I was able to use her experiences without actually having to be cold or scared myself.

I’m looking forward to 2013. If it is anything like 2012 I suspect there will be more changes in my future. I have plans to write three more modern fairytales and when these are finished I’ll compile all six tales into one book. I will have the rights back to my first four full length romances by the end of 2013 and plan on having them for sale on Amazon as ebooks. Since none of them have ever been sold as ebooks, I’m excited about the prospect of making them available to even more readers. I’m looking forward to 2013 and whatever it holds. In the meantime stop by Amazon and check out my crazy assortment of genres. Maybe you’ll find one that suits your sense of adventure.
