I write truth and I write fiction. I like weaving them together, in my women's fiction.
Women's fiction is that which is written with female readers in mind. It's about the protagonist's journey through a story, about her growth, her progress.
I have a theme. I think most writers do.
I've found each of my main characters is on the path of self-discovery. Whether it's someone leaving her job and relocating to start anew, someone realizing it's never too late to change, or finally getting to the root cause of her messy life, it's a common direction. Self-discovery, in simplest of terms.
My current work-in-progress (WIP) is in rewrites. My main character is a woman who's lived her whole life one way and now, as life is fragile, assesses what different would mean. She's on a journey.
Aren't all women on a journey? I think it never ends. We have so much to feel and learn. There's so much to relate.
That's what women's fiction is to me, and it's what I most love to write. It's what I hope my eventual readers will most love to read.
