That's difficult as I write two very different types of story.
My Dark Angel trilogy is quite a complex narrative that blends Gothic / Dark Fantasy with a touch of horror and romance. Character driven rather than propelled by events. It's Angels and Demons with 'Dark Angels' trying not to take sides less they be damned or saved.
Her Name is James is possibly as far as you can go in the other direction. A 'weepy' that tugs on emotions as you follow James when he faces the consequences of coming out as transgender to his family. It gets complicated when a friend declares she loves James.
Neither of those answers really sum up how I write except to say I try to have the reader live all the characters they read about. (less)

The first book I remember choosing to read was about a year later when my reading had improved, that was The Hobbit.(less)

Changing genres

Five novels, one novella and three years later, I'm just about set to leap into the world of science fiction and fantasy.

Two new works completed but one is being put away for now.

"The Deadlands" of the 'Bunker Born' trilogy is going to sit idle for a while whilst "The Blood Mage and the Thief" of 'The Gods' trilogy has just been pitched to a UK agent.

Probably because they want to make sure people are actually asking questions and not spamming. To answer your other question, Sage is the main driving force of this book, but it's told from Logan's point of view. I'd say she appears in about 60% o... See Brian’s answer.

This is a very difficult book to review. I'm frustrated at how good it almost is. I think with some serious thought and rewriting this has the potential to compete with the best fantasy books out there.
