I've really loved steampunk for a long time, ever since 'Wild Wild West,' and it's always been a genre and an era that's fascinated me. But so often it's set in England, and that doesn't really resonate with me, or maybe it just seems a little overdone.
I love those books like 'Gone with the Wind,' the huge, sweeping family sagas.
I've just always been fascinated by what our belief can do, and what happens when we misuse that.
I really do believe some people are naturally novelists and some people are short story writers. For me, when I was in middle school or high school, I started with novels.
