Today my special guest is author Leanne Dyck.We are both published by Decadent Publishing. Over the past year we have supported one another and exchanged ideas. She is a very talented person who has many interests. I asked her about being an author who writes in multiply genres. Here is her response.

Writing Multi-Genres

Before becoming a Decadent author, I self-published three collections of short stories, a how-to-knit pattern book and a cozy mystery. Decadent Publishing released my erotic short story (Untouched Places written under my pen name—Grace Meadows) and my thriller novella (The Sweater Curse). My most recent writing project is a young adult adventure novel.
            Too many months ago, Kathleen asked me to compose a post on writing multi-genres.
            I did try to produce this post. I sat down and willed my pen to create words. It didn’t move.
            There’s only one explanation. I don’t know how it happens. It’s not a conscious decision. Like Alice In Wonderland, I follow my muse down the rabbit hole. I’m falling—I don’t have time for questions. I just fall. I don’t really care where I’m going—to Iceland, to a cozy cafĂ©, or to a moss covered rock overlooking a roaring ocean.
            This love for multi-genre began in my teens. I’m dyslexic and as a youth was labelled a reluctant reader. Even then, I loved stories. Reading was just too frustrating. Slowly, painfully, I learned how to overcome my difficulties. Until, in my teens, I met a skilled Language Arts teacher. She exposed me to fine literature everything from Animal Farm to Ethan Frome to The Crucibles. She opened the door to a magical world. These books seduced me and created within me an undeniable hunger. Soon I was consuming everything from mysteries to romances to sci fi to memoirs. I paid little heed to title, author or genre—my only demand was story.
            And this need continues as I hope it always will.

Thank you for visiting my blog Leanne. It is always a pleasure to have you join us. We can't wait to see what you do next.
