Tomorrow (6th December) sees the release of my latest story, a novelette (7 500 words) which is a paranormal noir.
I've always loved those old film noir and have looked at them with a bit of tongue-in-cheek in my story SNOOP.
|Lauren Becall: an inspiration|
In fact I wanted to start the story with a spin on the femme fatale trope.
I have set the story in Angel City, location unknown. I wanted the city to be universal to some extent and with the paranormal well and truly a part of the normal world. Or in our heroine's case, in the crime world.
I tend to like mixing things up - usually there's a romantic element in my stories and yes there is a love interest but it was more the noir that I was going for in this story. Or my blend of noir. I had a blast writing this story, and because I really loved the world, I shall return to its motley crew of characters.
How about you - do you like cross-genres?
