Action-Horror

  
One of the questions I get asked the most when people find out I'm a writer is, "What genre do you write in." I always have a little trouble with that because A.I don't like labels. B. Most of what I write doesn't fit a particular genre. People usually lump me into Urban Fantasy, which my market savvy friends tell me is now known as 'Supernatural Suspense', which works better, but the three Griffin & Price novels I've written with James A. Moore are rural, not urban, and I don't have most of the trappings of UF. I've been calling it Crime-Horror, though not all of the stuff I've done has both those elements. I think editor Geoff Brown has nailed it in his recent announcement about Griffin and Price books at Cohesion Press. 'Action Horror' was Geoff's phrase. I'm going with that because pretty much all my stuff has horror and action. Thanks, Geoff. Now I know what to say.
