Hello! Today with us we have the amazing M.A. Abraham! *Applause*

Angelina: Introduce yourself please.

M. A. Abraham: Hi, I am M. A. Abraham author of several series, as well as several stand alone books. When I am not writing, I am working for our family business, which keeps me out of trouble from pure lack of time to do much more than taking care of the company, and writing my stories. To keep me company I have two Siamese cats, One I named Athena Raven’s Paw, and the other Azorez Tathar Silver Myst. In my spare time, cough, I try to keep the nieces and nephews on their toes, and looking over their shoulders to see what is coming at them. Yes, I know… but it’s fun… they have found nicknames for me, Evil Christmas Elf, The Godmother, and Mistress of Ambush. Looks like I have a reputation to live up to. 😉 I will try my best.

Angelina: Did someone inspire you to become an author?

M. A. Abraham: When I was 14 a friend challenged me to a write off. It turned into a lifelong hobby with my niece eventually finding my stash of stories and deciding I needed to get them published. It was the push I needed to let the world know what I was doing behind the scenes.

Angelina: How long does it take for you to write a story?

M. A. Abraham: Depending on the motivation, and length of the story, it can take anywhere from 2 weeks to 4 months. The fastest I wrote was three full novels in the Elven Chronicles series. It took me 3 months. The words just kept coming. Vengeance has a Daughter took me 4 months.

Angelina: Where do you get your information or ideas for your books?

M. A. Abraham: I used to enjoy sitting back and reading the Encyclopaedia Britannica when I was a child. I would research anything that stuck me at the time as interesting. As a student I was a Science buff, Physics, Chemistry, and mathematics, with a love of Astronomy. I loved reading anything historical. I was also very athletic, and dabbled in things like archery, as well as being a natural in track and field. I have always had wide interests and read anything that I could get my hands on. The more you read, the more you learn. The more diversified your studies the better you are able to carry on conversations with others. Granted, talking to some about philosophy while at a cabaret makes others look at you strangely.

Angelina: What does your family think of your writing?

M. A. Abraham: They have different views, as you can expect from a large family. Some read everything I write, others are proud to say they have an author in the family, but they are not readers. Mostly they seem pleased.

Angelina: How many books have you written? Which is your favorite?

M. A. Abraham: I have written somewhere over 70 books, not including those that are written and going through different stages of edits at this time. My favourite? I will always love a short story I wrote and published called Embracing the Light… gotta love them Elven toddlers, they were such stinkers, and so lively. I laughed so hard writing their story at times.

Angelina: Who’s your favorite character you created?

M. A. Abraham: I love them all, but I think Serenity has to be one of the top characters. She is my dragon general. Of course there is Eden, Gabriel, Marious…. you get the picture.

Angelina: Who’s your least favorite character you created?

M. A. Abraham: That is simple, the Drazon. He ruled the Demon Hordes, and even they didn’t like him.

Angelina: Do you hear from your readers much? What kinds of things do they say?

M. A. Abraham: I understand I have a larger following than I thought I did. And yes, I often hear from those who read my books. Mostly they want sequels to the standalones, or want to know why I killed off characters (war can be brutal). They argue over which character is theirs, book boyfriends are a big deal it seems and can cause verbal sparring at times.

Angelina: What do you think makes a good story?

M. A. Abraham: I like a story that takes me somewhere out of myself, to another world, another realm, or just to another idea. I like reading books that have depth, but aren’t too serious. I want to laugh, and maybe cry a little. I want to sit back and shake my head at how silly some characters can be. I like action and always want that HEA at the end.

Angelina: Tell us about your WIP.

M. A. Abraham: I have several at the moment. I am writing book 2 in the Tantalus United series, I am working on the final book for the One Empire Series. I am also beginning to work on book 8 in the Guardians of the Empire Series. Granted, there are a few standalones that will be coming your way soon mixed in with the rest, but that is for next year.

Angelina: Thank you for hanging out with us. Please share your social links where readers can follow you. 

M. A. Abraham:

See you next Friday with next Author – W.A. Ashes!
