I wote a novel that has an ethnic slant about growing up in South Philadelphia as an Italian American Catholic. It basically deals with the conflict between the Italian desire to live life to the fullest and the Catholic influence which stifles human passions. It's a comic/dramatic work targetd to baby boomers. But, since my first novel was a murder mystery, I have found that it is difficult to expand ouside of the genre. Any thoughts or advice on this topic are appreciated.
