Soft Science Fiction
Soft science fiction reads more like general fiction. Usually, the difference is in the time period, location or culture.  Readers who often avoid the science fiction genre often enjoy soft science fiction. Rigsbee's soft science fiction books are generally literary - they are more character driven than plot driven. Her stories are always "clean," meaning they are void of profanity or explicit sex.
