Male vs. Female authors
#1
It seems that most gothic novels are written by women. However, i have realized that some men write under women's names - is it to appeal to an audience that consists mostly of women? (I am not discounting the fact that some members of this forum are men and that there are probably more men out there who enjoy gothic romances, but there seems to be a myth that only women would read those books.)

I read somewhere that men and women have different writing styles. Has anyone noticed this in their reading of gothic romances? Does anyone have a preference for male or female authors?

It seems to me that female authors tend to write "softer", appealing more to emotions. I have not read many male authors, probably due to an inate prejudice that women write better gothic romances. What do others think?
