Talk to Me Thursday: Meet Author Monica Walters

This Thursday and every Thursday Hopeful Heartbreakers hosts Talk To Me Thursday and our featured author was Monica Walters. In her live discussion she answered my questions, and a few of the readers questions so we could get to know her and her work a little better. Scroll down and see what she had to say. Don’t forget to check out her work and leave a review!





1. Are you a full-time or part-time author? How does that affect your writing?


I’m a full-time author. I try to have a set schedule for writing hours but since the quarantine, that has all gone out the window, since I have 2 school-aged children.



2. What kind(s) of writing do you do?


I’m primarily a contemporary romance author, but I’ve jumped into erotica and urban romance occasionally. Although, my contemporary has urban undertones.



3. What's the biggest thing that people think they know about your genre that isn't so?


Hmm. That most of it is unrealistic.



4. Is there anything about the writing life you think is misunderstood by the public?


The public seems to think it’s easy to craft these stories. It takes a lot of time and can be mentally draining, but the reward is worth all of it.



5. How many books have you written?


I’ve written 42 books. 41 are published.



6. If someone is brand new to your work, what book do you think they should start with?


That’s always a hard question for me. I would say that a reader should start with 8 Seconds to Love. It’s my first of, what I like to call, my country hood love stories. It was unique and it was the first book to snag me a true following of readers.



7. What's the title of your most recent book?


My most recent book is titled In Way Too Deep



8. How did you come up with the title of the book?


The song “Deep” by Summer Walker inspired the title and it fit the storyline as well.



9. What's the back of the book summary?


The song “Deep” by Summer Walker inspired the title and it fit the storyline as well.


The synopsis for the book is as follows:

Somehow, things spiraled out of control and the path to self-destruction seemed crystal clear. Kendrall “Kenny” Henderson had the perfect marriage until it wasn’t. While shying away from confrontation, his self-control slips from his grasp and he fell… hard. Losing his wife and children is killing him slowly inside, but the responsibility of taking care of his son outside of their union is what keeps him sane. In the meantime, Kenny knows that he will never love another woman the way he loves his ex-wife, Keisha. Although he messed up royally, he refuses to give up on having her in his life once again, even though she hates him for what he did. While he could hate her for her omissions, he chooses to accept the blame and keeps his knowledge to himself.⠀

Feelings of betrayal, anger, hurt, and embarrassment threaten to consume Keisha Henderson at every turn when it comes to her ex-husband, Kenny. His infidelities have taken a toll on her and she does what any logical female would do. She leaves, taking their two children with her. While she tries to harbor hatred in her heart for Kenny, it’s only an act. The man that first stole her heart, still has it. He just doesn’t know it. While he messed up completely, she knows that she isn’t blameless. Because of her indiscretions, she chooses to suffer in silence, wanting what she feels she no longer deserves. Instead of revealing this to Kenny, she chooses to take her frustrations and anger out on him.⠀

Kenny and Keisha have a long road of co-parenting ahead of them. The push and pull is real between them and Kenny’s fuse is lit at both ends, threatening an explosion, while Keisha continues to throw rocks from a glass house. Can they agree to forgive one another for the past for the sake of their children or will the structure of their relationship continue to crumble, eventually crushing everyone involved?



10. Tell us about the main characters.


The main characters are passionate but mostly misunderstood. Kenny Henderson has a laidback personality and at the start of the story, we learn about his infidelities. He’s misunderstood because from the outside looking in, he appears to be heartless, nonchalant, and cruel.


Keisha, his ex-wife, plays the victim well. She’s the mother of their two kids. When things were going well, she was the loyal, stay at home wife, who took care of the house. And she did that well. She can also be vindictive, petty, and cruel at times also.
