Karen Wiesner Returns!

I’m pleased to have Karen back with us! Today she shares why she writes in her chosen genre.

As you can see by my biography, I write in just about every genre. The story dictates the genre in every case, but it’s a rare event that one of my stories doesn’t contain a romance in there somewhere. In the last year, almost all of my stories have been inspirational romances—whether contemporary or with a mystery/suspense angle. While I’ll continue to write in other genres as the individual stories dictate, inspirational romance is becoming my “main” genre. I felt very led by the Lord to go in this direction, and, so far, it’s been an amazing blessing.

I guess I can’t choose my favorite writing genre because, like in my eclectic reading, I’m enjoying myself so much with each one. Bottom line, there are worlds to discover everywhere. Besides, writing a different genre keeps me refreshed, since I don’t think I could stand to write in the same one always. I love that I’m never writing the same thing. If you read my work, you’ll always get something new and different. To me, the greatest part of being a writer is going anywhere my imagination takes me.
