A sampling of books in other genres that I’ve read are Deborah Harkness’ bestselling fantasy A Discovery of Witches, Alyssa Day’s Shifter’s Lady, and the late Tom Clancy’s bestselling military thriller Red Storm Rising.
With two crime thriller titles under my belt, I’ve concentrated my reading on books written by Michael McGarrity - his Kevin Kerney novels; James Hayman’s McCabe and Savage mysteries; and, Michael Connelly’s Harry Bosch novels, as well as other authors such as Jeffery Deaver, Emelyn Rees, and Meg Gardiner.
Will I write in other genres? I actually started writing a novel about a shapeshifting judge who ventured from the bench to the street to ascertain the real truth in a witness’s rendition of the facts. Knowing that most witnesses lie under oath, he, using his unique abilities, sought out what really happened. That was the premise, but I gave up when fundamental questions arose that research couldn’t find a suitable answer for.
Will I write in other genres later? It’s very doubtful. I’m having too much fun making life miserable for my detectives.
