To celebrate the release of To Touch the Sky, Book 2 in the Leap of Faith series, M.A. Church shared some of her life with us.
Why did you choose to write M/M stories?
Why MM? I actually came upon the genre by accident. I was surfing the net and was looking for free short stories to read. I ran across this site called Literotica and stumbled across the Gay Male section. Oh my God, I immediately was hooked. Somehow I’d missed all this. And boy, did I scrounge around there reading every single story! There were some very good ones, and some very, very bad ones, lol. After reading at the site for half a year, I decided to try my hand at writing a story.
What finally pushed me into pubbing was winning a winter themed contest on Literotica several years ago. I’d been writing The Harvest series there. So I wrote a Christmas story having to do with the characters from Harvest and entered it. *laugh* It won first place. What’s significant about that was this was *not* a M/M contest. Most of the entries were M/F actually. That helped make my mind up.
I enjoy MM and since I found it, I haven’t read MF.
What do you hope to accomplish in the next 12 months?
Hmm, I really haven’t thought about it. I have two more stories I want to get subbed to DsP in the hopes they come out this year. One is called Behind the Eight Ball and is the book after Trouble Comes in Threes. The other book is a scifi enemy to lovers novel. I’m not really sure what I’m going to do with that. I also need to finish up the first Youngs book from The Harvest series.
Outside of writing, we plan to put down new floors at the house, and then redo the countertops in the kitchen. The hubby is looking for a new truck. LOL, his is on its last leg.
Two hours later he was back up, pacing the floor, beyond annoyed. Why was he doing this now? He knew who his mate was supposed to be, and he wanted no part of it. He was responsible for himself only, and he liked it that way. Too bad the spirit that shared his body didn’t agree.
Really? What about all those people at the bar who depend on you?
“It’s not the same thing, and you know it.” A quick glance out his bedroom window confirmed dawn was about to break.
Freaking A, arguing with you is like arguing with a signpost. Why don’t you go stretch your wings, old man? We’ll chill on the breeze. Shift and we’ll find a nice juicy pigeon or rabbit for breakfast. That sounds dee-lish.
Hawk rolled his neck. His totem spirit’s mentality was that of a fifteen-year-old hopped up on sugar and running on three hours of sleep. The spirit was very old, but damned if it acted its age.
Whatever, dude. Just do something, will ya?
M.A. Church is a true Southern belle who spent many years in the elementary education sector. Now she spends her days lost in fantasy worlds, arguing with hardheaded aliens on far-off planets, herding her numerous shifters, or trying to tempt her country boys away from their fishing poles. It’s a full time job, but hey, someone’s gotta do it!
When not writing, she’s exploring the latest M/M novel to hit the market, watching her beloved Steelers, or sitting glued to HGTV. That’s if she’s not on the back porch tending to the demanding wildlife around the pond in the backyard. The ducks are very outspoken. She’s married to her high school sweetheart, and they have two children.
She was a finalist in the Rainbow awards for 2013.
