What kind of Book should I WriteWhich book should I write?
As one chooses a kind when writing (sometimes the kind chooses you)
Probably I should begin with the fact that the issue of the intended group is never in my head when I write a novel.

It has won a number of prizes, among them the Rainbow Award and the British Book Award. Some time around 2006 I finally made up my minds that I had failed to fulfil my real vocation as a young grown-up writer. One of the editors pointed out to me that my coming-of-age personalities were always the main theme in my grown-up work. When asked which of my writers and works I was admiring, I realised that I was thinking directly of the works I had been reading as a youngster.
I' m inclined to read young grown-up romances to this days. But after five stories with a Young-Adult publishing house it became clear that the book did not quite find its public. Well, maybe I did write came of age-fiction after all. I' ve sent it (through my agent) to my YA-redactor.
Of course, this made it much more mature. It was presented to my grown-up literary journalist (then) who agreed. Her first review was in the Journal of the University Library, which she described as "High School through Adult". Now, the actual issue is, should I? Is it really my job, as a writer, to tell who's going to do the work?
We all have to know as writers not to react to what is said publicly about our work. It really is none of our concern what every readership thinks of them. I now write coming-of-age stories that almost always contain one or more youngsters. Cause that' s what I like to write.
I am happy that my older Young adults have a new opportunity to find their audiences. As I write, my aim is to dive deep enough into the depths of man's experiences to find some kind of universal. We are all people once we have dug under the different surfaces.
All people want the same things at our heart. And we want to sense that what we do with our life has a purpose. When we can talk to this very personal place in our readership, it may not be so important that the protagonist is sixteen and the readership is sixty.
Perhaps it's just important that they're both people. Well, I suppose it just hangs on how you get close to being a person when you write a book. So, in answering the issues of typing several different styles, and keeping your audiences like you do, I would say that my winning poker game is to write tales that I think people will like.
