Writing Different Genres

May 9, 2007 1:40pm CST
I have the basic plan and idea for a fiction book. The thing is that the genre is going to be a genre that I don't normally read myself. But I have done quite a bit research on it, so I know the basic requirements of that subject. So I was just wondering, do authors normally write for the genres that they like? Would people actually buy the books if the author had little experience writing/reading that genre?
