Miss Bates is a voracious reader and sucker for an HEA. She has much to say about what she reads. Miss Bates writes mainly about historical and contemporary romance, “vintage” romance, gothic romance and, more rarely, crime fiction. She may, on occasion, write about non-fiction, which she reads almost as often and with as much pleasure as romance. She doesn’t read or review paranormal or New Adult romance, steam-punk, erotica, litfic, or women’s fiction. Miss Bates would defend your right to read and write them, though.
