One of the challenges I encountered when I began writing, was classifying what genre my stories best fit into.

Since my tales didn’t consistently fit into any one category, I always dreaded being asked what genre I wrote in because I never had an answer. Then I discovered the existence of a genre known as speculative fiction and I immediately had an aha! moment. It was a perfect fit.
