THE INTERVIEW QUESTIONS:
Tell us a little bit about yourself!
Michael Mandrake pens complex characters already comfortable with their sexuality. Thorough these, he builds worlds not centered on erotica but rather the mainstream plots we might encounter in everyday life through personal experiences or the media.
Can you give the readers a brief summary of your latest book?
This latest mission calls for focus and calmer heads if Kimball and Darien are to find the offenders who are bringing illegal drugs into Russia. The question is, how can they do it with mutual feelings and the threat of extreme danger looming over their heads?
What genre does it fall in?
Will you share a few words about your latest book, other than the usual blurb?
Story with suspense, double agents, and a friends to lovers tale with sexual tension.
Give us a little insight into your main characters! Who are they?
Darien is the hothead while Kimball is calm, smart, and crafty.
Will we be seeing these characters again any time soon? Is this book part of a series?
Yes, but can be read as standalone. The PROTEKT series
Tell us a little bit about your writing style. When and where is your favorite time/place to write?
Late at night and in my home office.
What sort of book do you enjoy reading in your free time? What was the last book you read? Did you enjoy it?
Between Good and Evil Heavenly Sins Book 3 by LM Brown. YES!
Did you always know you wanted to be a writer? Have you held any interesting jobs while you worked on your books?
Only for the last few years, but I’ve been writing since my late teens. Not really. I am a vendor for a book company, so I get first dibs on new mainstream releases.
What does your writing process look like?
A mix of panster and plotter.
Why did you choose to write GLBTQ romance? Why not another genre?
I love writing things outside of whats considered mainstream. Writing GLBTQ means writing characters that aren’t cookie cutter.
One last questions…totally unrelated to books! I am a passionate foodie. Is there one thing in your pantry that you would be horrified for people to know that you eat?
Not really. I’m pretty boring in that aspect. Oh wait, I do love cottage cheese and pickles. lol
Thankyou so much for answering my questions. I think my readers will enjoy learning more about you! Good luck in your future writing!
