Elizabeth Peters/Barbara Michaels writes mysteries and paranormal romances,
and I know of several writers who write both children's books and/or
educational titles as well as general adults' titles. I write sci fi,
romance, children's books, educationals, spin-offs, storylines and verse...
I think it's more common in those who make a living from writing. Unless
you're a "best seller", you can't often sell enough copies of any one genre
to live on the proceeds.
