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.
