I'm not sure I've totally grasped the subject of genre. Here are a few definitions, as I understand them:
Paranormal mystery - My life.
Romantic Comedy - My love life.
Gothic Horror - My reflection, first thing in the morning.
Cosy Crime - My cooking ability.
Thriller - My shopping trip to Sainsburys.
Fantasy Fiction - My life, as described by my friends.
Historical Romance - The best years of my life.
Memoir - Something to do with my life ... I can't remember what.
I do hope that was helpful.
