Please say hello to Missy Welsh and
Take Your Pick
Peter Kim has been in love with his five best friends since junior high. Now attending college, they share a house, but none of them know how Pete really feels.
Until the five of them come home early to find Pete masturbating while watching a video of them all on vacation near a river last summer.
Devastated and embarrassed, Pete is sure they’ll kick him out come morning. Accepting him as the only gay one among them is one thing, but knowing he lusts after them? All of them? They couldn’t possibly accept that.
But when Pete wakes up the next morning, he’s shocked to discover his housemates have a proposition for him. He’ll choose one of them each day, and they promise to do whatever he wants—including sex—for a full twelve hours.
And, yeah, they’re serious.
I watched them pile into the behemoth Devon’s mom had loaned for tonight’s trip up to Cleveland. They all looked good in their club clothes. Nothing flashy or too tight, but I’d spread some fashion sense around and they’d believed me every time. Not a single girl would be able to resist my boys.
Of course, there would be plenty of boys who’d be unable to resist them either.
Just like me.
I waved as they drove off, equal parts relieved and lonely. I didn’t want to let them go without me, but I had been wound way too tight lately. I had on one other piece of clothing—the tightest pair of briefs I owned—just to help mask the boner I kept springing every time I’d been near them for the past three days.Something had to give, and it was going to happen in a gush of orgasmic heat all over my fist.

We had the chance to ask Missy a few questions...
Hi, Missy. Thank you for agreeing to this interview. Tell us a little about yourself, your background, and your current book.
Hello! Thanks so much for hosting me today. I'm not too complicated, I am addicted to carbs, and I need an app on my phone to yell at me so I work through my to-do list. Sometimes I'm pink and frilly, but mostly I'm denim and bare feet. I've worked in membership management, IT, customer service, and marketing, but it's writing fiction that I truly love.
Take Your Pick is about Peter Kim and his 5 housemates exploring their sexualities in the name of ultimate friendship. See, Pete's in love with all of them and it's become a secret he can't contain any longer. After he's found out, he's both thrilled and wary about his housemates' decision to spend a day with him doing whatever he wants, including sex. Pete's going to learn a lot about each of them as well as himself by the end of this story.
Tell us something about your character’s friends.
Pete lives with his 5 best friends in a house not far from the campus of their college. Mario is affectionate and sweet, Tony's fun-loving and caring, Nate's really outgoing and adventurous, Devon's kind of shy but really loyal, and Ross is sort of stoic and stern but protective.
What is your character’s favorite meal? Favorite dessert? Favorite snack food?
Pete loves it when Mario or Tony cook because they always do Italian dishes. He's a big fan of lasagna and piccolini. For dessert, Pete adores simple chocolate ice cream. When a snack attack hits, Pete goes for the potato chips.
What activity does your character absolutely hate?
Pete hates to run—well, to workout at all, really. In the book, though, one of the guys discovers Pete's interest in sweaty men in locker rooms and makes sure he and Pete are well-prepped for their roles. (But Pete isn't happy about the running.)
What other author’s book do you think your character would be good in?
I really don't know. Who's writing sweet/slutty guys in five-way relationships?
What’s your favorite decade and why?
I wouldn't have wanted to live through it, but the 60s were a pretty fascinating time, in my opinion. So many things happened in all areas from politics to women's issues to race relations to space travel. It was a massive jumping off point for a lot of things going on today.

Basically, she’s a writer.
