Why Different Genres?

Why different genres for this collection of stories?

Our Transcendent Authors anthologies were the result of writers from different genres coming together. Each author contributed unique artistic skills in writing and communication, and each came to the table with diverse strengths and interests.

To highlight our attributes without stifling the creative writing flow, we collectively selected a single theme. This decision allowed each of us to write in the genre which expressed our style and voice yet still explore a thematic element.

Thus Tolerance: A Collection of Short Stories, Autumn: An Anthology and Spring—The Unexpected have stories portrayed with a different flair.
