Jodie Picoult: I write 'ethical fiction' not chick-lit

11th May 2010

Best-selling US author Jodi Picoult claims that her books do not fit into the chick-lit genre because half of her fan mail comes from male readers.

The author of My Sister's Keeper, The Pact and Nineteen Minutes claims that if she was to put her own work in a genre it would be found in the 'ethical fiction' section.

Speaking exclusively to the Metro, Picoult said: 'I don't have a problem with the genre but I don't fit into it.'

When questioned about writing outside the chick-lit genre, Picoult remarked that she was working on a new book about a music therapist which will come with an original soundtrack.

'A friend of mine and I have written music to go with it via CD or download,' Picoult told the news provider.

She added: 'It's never been done, as far as I know, and it makes for a really interesting reading experience.'

Picoult's last book, House Rules, was released on April 27th and was described by Heat magazine as a 'captivating read'.
