Generally I stick with fiction– fantasy and historical fiction being at the top. I like the freedom of other worlds and the lesser need of getting all the facts right. I was also a highly imaginative child (HA. I still am.) and tended to play in other worlds or with magical beasts and beings in this one.
I’ve always loved reading about other worlds and making them part of mine, but I was always limited to what was available and appropriate. And there wasn’t– I should say, isn’t– that much around. I think I agree with many of the previous posts when I say I want to write things I wish I’d been able to read back then.
It's a dangerous business, going out your door... who knows where you'll end up.
