Celebrating Pride Month with T.S. Ankney #Spotlight #Wotr24 #attendingauthor

Hello, and thanks for being here to Celebrate Pride Month with Twinsie Talk. I’m Twinsie Tenise, self proclaimed resident MM reader and reviewer over here at Twinsie Talk. Throughout the Month of June we will be sharing Q&A sessions we had with over a dozen authors who write LGBTQIA Romance or books with LGBTQIA characters. Each day will Spotlight a different author. We hope you enjoy getting to know these wonderful authors and find lots of new books to fill your TBR.

Special thanks to all of the authors who signed up and took the time to answer the questions. Shout-out and HUGE THANK YOU to Twinsie Jo for the amazing rainbow graphics and Twinsie Angie for your input and assistance. Love you both!

Today we are celebrating pride with author T.S. Ankney!

T.S. is a new member of the Writers on the River family. I’ve yet to meet T.S. in real life but from the interactions we’ve had online I think we will get along great. I cannot promise the first time we meet that I won’t be awkward as all get out. That’s just how I roll. Haha!  I look forward to meeting in July and learning about all your books.

T.S. Ankney read their first romance novel at age twelve, when they snuck a book with a risqué cover out of a relative’s cabinet and read it at night under the covers with a flashlight to avoid getting caught relishing the “good parts.” They are a tiny blue dot in a big red state in the Midwest US and they love a sad song, a happily ever after, and believe representation matters. When not writing, you can find TS streaming documentaries, reading new books by their favorite authors, or indulging in reality TV competition shows like Project Runway or Great British Baking Show.

🏳‍🌈What’s your name and a little about you?
T.S. Ankney
🏳‍🌈What made you decide to write LGBTQIA romance?
I’ve been an avid reader of MM Romance for years, so I decided to try my hand at some. My alter-ego writes diverse MF contemporary romance so it wasn’t a huge leap. Plus, everyone deserves their HEA!
🏳‍🌈Do you prefer to write standalones or series? Why?
Depends on the story, but I do love being able to sink into a world over several books and go deeper with characters and settings.
🏳‍🌈Do you have a current WIP? Care to share any details?
Well, I just finished up book three in my latest MM romantic suspense trilogy, Guardian Alliance Security, about a trio of former SEALs who have started a private security training facility and are investigating the mysterious deaths of their friends.
🏳‍🌈What are your must have writing snacks and drinks?
Water, coffee, and my music. No snacks. I forget about all of it anyway once I’m in the writing groove.
🏳‍🌈If someone has never read your work, which book would you recommend?
If you like short, steamy reads, then I’d suggest book one in my Hot Takes series, Right-Hand Man. If you’re looking for a little mystery/suspense/military with your MM romance, then I’d start with book one in my One of Our Own series, Shoot to Kill
🏳‍🌈If you could recommend 1 LGBTQIA Romance (not your own) to readers, what would that book be?
Anything by KJ Charles. She’s one of my all-time favorite authors!
🏳‍🌈What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
Reading, watching movies and TV, playing with my dog Karley, adult coloring apps on my new iPad.
🏳‍🌈Anything else you would like to add?
Can’t think of anything right now. Looking forward to meeting everyone at my first WotR!
