MM MARCH MADNESS!!
Twinsie Talk is proud to present the 3rd Annual MM March Madness – a month to focus on the M/M, F/F, M/M/F, M/F/M authors. We love these books and want to share it with the rest of the world. Each day we will post an interview. We will also include any reviews that we have done on these books as well as links to the books.
Our hope is that you will love this genre as much as we do! <3
Today is devoted to Sandrine Gasq-Dion
Best selling author, Sandrine (Sandy) was born in Inglewood, California. Raised by “Old School” French parents, she later moved to Tucson, AZ. It was there that writing became a hobby. Always told she had a great imagination, Sandy wrote short stories for her friends in High School. In college, she took more writing classes while working on her Criminal Justice degree, but it wasn’t until a soap opera caught her eye that she got involved in male on male romances. On the advice of a friend, Sandy dipped her toes into the world of M/M Romance. Sandy takes the writing seriously and has had countless conversations with gay men as well as hours of research.She’s been involved with the military in one way or another for over twenty years, and has a great deal of respect for our men in uniform. She’s traveled the world, but has finally returned to Arizona.
Tell us about something about you (not included in your normal author bio) that maybe not everyone knows about you.
I have been married to the military since I was nineteen. I still go to all my guys for info on military procedures and whether would and wouldn’t do in certain situations. 😉
There’s been a trend in writing a series. How do you feel about series? Do you write them? Do you think they are easier or harder?
I love series. I’m not a big fan of sequels because I feel that they never measure up to the first book. Writing a series gives you the freedom to incorporate the characters from previous books so readers can see what they’ve been up to! I think it’s much easier.
Where do you do most of your writing?
I have an office in my house that’s filled with my characters. I surround myself with pictures of hot naked men. 😀
What are you currently reading? Any suggestions for your favorite books (beside your own, of course)?
I’m reading INET form Brenda Cothern and Behind the Music by Ann Lister. My all time favorite has to be KA Mitchell’s Collision Course. It was my first MM read! Right behind that is Evangeline Anderson’s “The Assignment”
Do you feel that this genre is growing? And what do you contribute to that growth or decline?
I believe it is growing. I’m trying to diversify what I write and how I write it. I’ve tackled attempted suicide and I have a book coming out later on that deals with another issue. I’ve always had my guys in the Assassin Shifters creating youth shelters for displaced and runaway gay teens. I hope to bring more awareness to the problem.
What is the most surprising thing you have learned about writing?
It’s not just one character that speaks to me anymore, it’s a slew of them and they’re all fighting for time. I wrote four books back-to-back when I moved back to Arizona and now I’m exhausted. I’ve learned I need to take a break and shush those voices for a bit. 😉
What are you working on now?
I’m working on; Ransom’s book from the rock series, Jordy and Wraith from the 12 Olympians, Loki and Cezar from the Assassin Shifters, Ryan and Michael from the Men of Manhattan and a new M/F book.
What is your favorite thing to do on a Saturday night?
Sleep and or read, catch up on shows I’m SO far behind in (Supernatural)
Tell us about the highest HIGH and lowest LOW in your career so far. How has it changed you?
Highest was when the first book (Dirty Ross) Hit below 100 in books bought in the kindle store! Lowest low was the first one star review. Now I’m older and wiser and know that you can’t please everyone. Not everyone thinks the same so while one person will LOVE the book, someone else will hate it. It is what it is!
