Meet T.M. Smith at Readers & 'ritas!

As part of our countdown to Readers & ‘ritas 2017, our Meet the Author interview series helps you get to know the authors joining us in Texas on November 10-12. Read on to get acquainted with author T.M. Smith, and purchase your tickets to meet her in person at Readers & ‘ritas!

What book made you fall in love with the genre you write?

I have always read gay romance, so it made sense to me to write what I like to read.

If a movie were made of your most recent book, who would you cast in the lead and why?

I have a new release coming at the end of October, SURVIVOR, and the lead character is based on Matthew Daddario, the actor who plays Alec Lightwood on the TV show Shadowhunters. I guess it's fitting that Matthew D plays a gay character on the show.

What was the first story you ever wrote?

OPPOSITES. It's an adult dystopian LGBT romance series.

If you could change the ending to any famous book, TV show, or movie, what would it be and how would you rewrite it? (Spoiler alert!)

The last book in the Sookie Stackhouse/True Blood series pissed me off severely. I mean, seriously, Sookie belonged to Eric, there's no question. All through the books he did anything, everything, and then some to make sure Sookie was his, that she always came back to him. But in the end, he politely walked away and she ended up with Sam??! I felt like the author "phoned in" the last half of the final book. As a fan, I was upset and felt cheated. So I'd change that. Sookie and Eric!

What is your favorite part of meeting your readers? New readers?

I love to hear what readers think of the stories I write and the characters I create. It's always humbling to me when readers rave about their favorite character(s). And I'm always ready to welcome to new readers into the fold. I know gay romance isn't necessarily everyone's cup of tea, but if you give me five minutes, I'll do my best to convince you!
