Pick a category: How would you describe your book?

I was asked the other day how I would describe our Jack and Boo children’s books. I answered by saying they were nature-led stories for children that combined fact and fiction, with spotter guides! Not exactly as catchy as Don Draper from Mad Men would have come up with, but it did start me thinking, was it an accurate description of the book? Just what category or genre does my writing fit? Do categories matter anymore? How would you describe your book? I don’t have definitive answers, but these are my musings…hop over to historic novel writer, Helen Hollick’s blog to read my guest blog post on the conundrum of categories… (extreme author photo warning!)
