As readers, sometimes we find that the best genre to read is no genre at all. But other times we want to read a good fantasy, romance, science-fiction, or holiday story to meet our needs. This section features any book that doesn’t slot well into my primary genres of focus, including those without a genre leaning or those that share elements with a genre I don’t normally write in.

Note: Some books I’ve featured in other categories may still appear here. If so, then odds are they’re cross-genre books, with one of the genres leaning toward fantasy, romance, experimental fiction, or anything that doesn’t align with my core three genres.
