Exclusive Interview with Monica Murphy

Saturday, December 12, 2015

Perfect for readers of Colleen Hoover, Jay Crownover, and K. A. Tucker, the first novel in this darkly sexy contemporary series from bestselling author Monica Murphy kicks off an emotionally powerful two-part tale of forbidden love.

Crazy how eight years can disappear in an instant. One look at Katie Watts, and I’m a fifteen-year-old again—the one who risked everything to save a terrified girl from her twisted kidnapper. She’s grown-up now—beautiful, quiet, composed—and telling her story to the world. A story that involves me in more ways than you can imagine. She used to call me her guardian angel. Sure, I risked my life, but she was worth dying for.I need to make contact with her. Just to ensure that she’s safe.Somehow we reconnect. We become friends . . . but I want more. I want to make her mine. And she wants me too. Does she know who I am? Has she figured me out? Not yet. But she will. In the meantime, I need to make sure that whatever hold that animal had on her is gone.So, yeah, I’m stealing these moments with her. Savoring them. Knowing, dreading, that she’ll soon find out who I really am. And everything will fall apart. All because of that twisted, perverted monster sitting on death row. Her kidnapper. A convicted serial killer. My father.

1. Tell us a little bit about your latest book?

My new release is NEVER TEAR US APART and it's about a couple who were brought together in the worst of circumstances when they were younger (a kidnapping). They formed a strong bond in that short amount of time they were together and years later, they end up together again, the bond just as strong if not stronger. But my hero Ethan is keeping his true identity secret from Katherine. And this isn't good because you know she's going to find out and the you know what is going to hit the fan...

2. What makes it different from your others books? 

NEVER TEAR US APART goes back and forth between the past and present, something I've never done before in a book and I enjoyed writing it that way - how the past reflects the present and vice versa. While my previous series for my publisher was very sexy (downright erotic), this book isn't erotic at all. It's more about the emotional connection between two people. Plus I tackle some tough subjects, ones that I hope I wrote with enough sensitivity so as not to offend the readers.

3. What inspired you to write this book?

I've always been fascinated with true crime, both reading about it and watch documentaries on TV, and I don't know, I just somehow came up with this twisted, weird story and melded my two favorite topics - true crime/serial killers and romance. Talk about unconventional. I warned my editor when I started talking to her about my idea and thankfully she didn't say I was a complete weirdo for coming up with it. She's been very encouraging.

4.What do you think makes a good story?

Interesting characters, a seemingly overwhelming problem that the characters must face, a swoon-worthy hero, a smart heroine, fast pacing and of course, a satisfying happily ever after.
