One of the joys of writing contemporaries is the ability to pilfer parts of real life to stick into your own personal world. I freely admit that I grabbed churches and bookshops and names of villages with wild abandon to put into Trowchester and its environs.
To start with the top down, the twisted spire of Trowchester’s cathedral owes its existence to the Church of St. Mary and All Saints in Chesterfield.
I don’t think I’ve ever been inside. To the best of my memory, I just saw it in passing as we drove past on the way to somewhere else. I couldn’t believe how eerie and wrong it looked, as if God had reached down and twisted it like barley sugar. I don’t know yet why Trowchester’s cathedral spire suffered the same fate, but I’m sure it will reveal itself to me in time.

Today we’re joined by Alex Beecroft. Alex is a very talented author who writes male/male romance. Her website states lyrical prose, misfit heroes, strange and vivid worlds. What more could you want? More information on her work can be found at http://alexbeecroft.com/. My thanks to her for taking the time to participate in this interview.
Please, tell us about your art.
I’m an author of queer fiction, I can’t really put it much more specifically than that. I’m published in the field of m/m romance, but even there, there’s a variance in the sexuality of my protagonists – I have gay men and bisexual men and trans men (currently only in one m/f story, but I mean to write more) and homoromantic asexual men.

I can has new website too!
Or in non-cat speech, I have a new website designed by the lovely Celia Kyle of Get Cesigned
and it has an attached blog, to which I can post to using the same interface.
The idea was that I could simplify all my blogs into one place, so I’m no longer crossposting everywhere and cluttering up the internet with duplicate copies of everything.
I’ve exported all my posts from this blog into the new one, so all of the content is now over there, and I’m going to be retiring this blog as of now.
If you’ve been following this blog, please change your bookmark to
and I’ll hope to see you over there! :)
