M.A. Church’s Trouble Comes In Threes

This morning I have M.A. Church on my blog. Her latest book Trouble Comes In Threes is out now. It sounds like a great story and I can’t wait to read it. M.A. graciously let me ask her a bunch of fun questions and we had fun joking. Read all about the book after the interview. The excerpt is so good. I know you’ll want to keep reading. There’s also some fan art that she shared that I couldn’t keep to myself! Be sure to go all the way to the bottom and enter for a chance to win a copy of the book.

Amanda C. Stone: Good morning! I’m so glad you could join me today. If you were a candy bar what would you taste like?
M.A. Church: Hmm, well let’s see. I’d say a Twix. The first taste is okay… nothing to sing about, but not bad enough to make your eyes pop out, lol. Then, after a second, the chocolate starts to melt and the true flavor explodes, and whoo boy, the fun begins because then you just found the crunchy part! Your nose twitches, your eyes roll, and you don’t know if you want to keep going or not.
ACS: Mmm, Twix…
MAC: *snort* And that’s me. At least, that’s what my friends say—I come across as normal, then once I let my guard down, the insanity that is my life leaks through.

And God love them, they don’t run off screaming, lol.
ACS: If you’re as amazing as a Twix I wouldn’t run screaming either. Who would you want to have as a stripper at your birthday party?
MAC: Jesse Jackman. *pants* He’s an adult entertainer, and I think the man is the hottest thing going, lol. Jesus, his videos are something else. Getting to see him and his hubby at my party would be the Best. Thing. Ever. *wink*

I just probably told off on myself, but that’s okay too!
ACS: Nah, pretty sure anyone with a pulse would want to see those two together. If there were a movie about your life, who would you want to play you? It can be anyone alive or dead.
MAC: Huh. I’ve never thought about it, lol. It’d be a pretty boring movie, I have to say. Okay, okay, let me think (stop snickering!)…
ACS: Who me?! I’d never laugh at my guests. Ok, maybe just a little. But only because I enjoy their company so much.
MAC: I guess I’d have to go with Julia Roberts. Her personality is beautiful, and that laugh just keels me.

She’s a lovely woman, but her laugh got my attention from the very beginning. It’s explosive and fun. That’s what I’d hope folks remember about me… my laugh and personality.
ACS: I have a major crush on Julia Roberts. She seems like she’d be just a down to earth, cool person to hang out with. If you could snap your fingers and have an invention to do anything you want, what would you want it to do?
MAC: OMG, teleport me from one place to another (in one piece with everything where it should be, lol)! I hate driving. I hate riding in a car, lol. I just want to be there—forget all the hours and hours in a car or plane. It’s boring! *shivers*
ACS: Oh my gosh, YES! I hate the act of traveling, but I love the destinations.
MAC: And that makes me sound incredibly impatient, which is funny since I’m really not. But traveling is like the 5th Level of Hell for me.
ACS: At least when you arrive wherever you’re going you can enjoy the time there and not worry about dreaded traveling again until you have to go home. Last question. Do you have a library card and know where it is?
MAC: I do, actually! (Ex-teacher, here. Of course I have one, lol.)
ACS: *high five* Hooray for ex-teachers!
MAC: It’s in my desk. When my kids turned five years old many years ago (no, not saying how many is many, lol), they got one too. Now, if *they* knew where theirs were, I’d be impressed, lol.
ACS: It’s amazing how easily kids can lose things as simple as library cards. Thank you again for taking the time to let me interview you. I loved having you.

A snowstorm in the South—on New Year’s Eve—is a perfect recipe for a catastrophe. After two soul-crushing bad breaks, Kirk’s waiting for disaster number three to strike when naturally, two stray cats arrive on his doorstep during the storm and decide to make themselves at home. Tenderhearted Kirk lets them stay even though there’s something decidedly odd about his overly friendly felines.

Out of the punishing weather, and full of tuna, Dolf and Tal are happy to be snug in Kirk’s house. But then their human goes outside for firewood and suffers a nasty fall that leaves him unconscious. Now the two cats have no choice but to reveal themselves.

Kirk wakes up to find the two kitties are actually Dolf and Tal. They’re cat shifters—and his destined mates. Being part of a feline threesome is enough for Kirk to grapple with, but soon he learns they come from a clowder that doesn’t believe humans and shifters should mix. Kirk knew those two cats would be trouble. Little does he know the real trouble lies ahead.

Dolf picked out the saw he wanted, then followed Tal to another aisle. His mate pointed out the different kinds, but Tal’s words had rapidly faded into a meaningless buzz. There, on the air currents in the store, was the sweetest scent. It was light and flowery, reminding him of honeysuckle. He breathed deeply, taking the scent into himself. His cock hardened immediately and his head spun. A yowl threatened to escape.

That scent… that scent was seductive and alluring. It spoke to him, whispering things that made him need. His cat paced frantically in his mind, tail slashing madly. The need to pounce, to sink his canines in and drink that sweet, life-giving blood of his…. His gums tingled and saliva flooded his mouth.

He swallowed, then swallowed again as his head pounded, his heart rate spiking as one thought screamed through his mind: Mate! Another mate! Where was that scent coming from? Or who? And by the goddess, why? He already had a mate. What was their goddess thinking, giving him another? But he couldn’t ignore the reaction. It had been the same when he met Tal.

About M.A.:
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.
