Had to explain to someone why I read YA even though I’m not a young adult. Told him I also read Fantasy even though I’m not a wizard.— Marko Kloos (@markokloos) November 7, 2013
But if you have to answer a question like this, you can respond as science fiction novelist Marko Kloos did. Read, watch and listen to what you like and ignore what other people think.
On the other hand, Jessica Lynch has a point:
@markokloos But Fantasy isn't targeted toward wizards. ... Wait, maybe that's why my fantasy novel hasn't sold!— Jessa Lynch (@chichenpizza) November 7, 2013
