Hi, I’m May Bishop! I write LGBTQ+ romance stories about love, life, and magic (sometimes). This is a pen name, but it’s not the super secret kind. It’s the plausible deniability kind so that I don’t have to stumble out a response to someone at work if anyone comes across my books there by some miracle (that is very unlikely to happen).
I’ve been writing since I was a kid (and I’m in my mid-thirties), and I’ve loved stories forever. I read a LOT of books, and around the end of 2016 I started reading MM books and was instantly hooked. Like most writers, I am influenced by what I read, and so I wanted to write my own books.
I’ve been struggling with another series, regular old fantasy, so I thought this was a perfect time to switch gears to something completely different. As my writing tends to do, it grew and changed, and everything started linking together and now I have all these characters that want their stories written.
After the day job, I’m doing my best to give those characters their voice.
I’m always open to making new friends, and I’m usually online someplace (except not snap chat – I’m too old for that) so come find me.
