    Would you read a Cold War Spy Thriller written by a woman?

    Would a spy thriller be more commercially accepted under a male pen name?  When I think of the genre, I think of Tom Clancy, Robert Ludlum, David Baldacci, Clive Cussler, or John Le Carre.

    Absolutely! As long as it was good I don't care about the gender of the writer or the lead character.

    You bet I would.  I love a good spy thriller and would not care one way or the other who wrote it.

    I would enjoy any Cold War Spy Thriller that maintained credibility. The gender of the author is not an issue; obviously, there are women engaged in espionage and spycraft that could write well on the topic.

    Sure, why not?  The "regulars" get old.  I always enjoy reading new or unknown authors if they are good.
