"The cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity." - Dorothy Parker
Although my writing falls into the category of the fantastic, I always look for authenticity in fiction. Every writer creates a fictional world, including those who call themselves journalists. The most compelling fictions are the ones that create a believable world - even one never seen before. So I like stories that have a sense of place, a bit of grit, or searingly vibrant details.
