Interview: Melissa Foster, author of Tru Blue

Describe your book in 30 words or less.

A dark and gritty romance that will stay with you long after you finish reading and make you question everything you thought about loyalty, love, and family.

What would you get arrested for?

Hm, that’s a good question. What “would” I? There are so many things I could have gotten arrested for growing up – but I’m too wise to admit them.

Who was your favourite character to write and why?

I have to say honestly that ALL of my characters have touched me in different ways, but the heroine from TOUCHED BY LOVE (The Remingtons), Janie Jansen, is one character that possesses strength beyond anything I can even imagine. She’s right up there on the top of the list.

Why do you write contemporary romance? Why do you think it’s an important genre?

I do think romance is an important genre. Love is important in life, whether with friends or lovers, and writing romance gives me a chance to create amazing worlds with strong heroes and heroines that have depth and real-life responsibilities. It allows me to write books I’d want to read.

What books did you enjoy when you were younger that later on influenced you as a writer?

I was a ravenous reader in all genres, and I think every book I’ve ever read influenced me. This will probably seem cliché, but TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD probably influenced me the most, because it was such a deep story about looking beyond what you see visually.

Imagine falling in love with a man, then finding out he was a killer...TRU BLUE is a sexy, dark stand-alone novel written in the same loving, raw, and emotional voice romance readers have come to love, and the deeply emotional literary prose women's fiction readers have come to expect, from New York Times & USA Today bestselling, award-winning author Melissa Foster.

He wore the skin of a killer, and bore the heart of a lover...

There's nothing Truman Gritt won't do to protect his family--Including spending years in jail for a crime he didn't commit. When he's finally released, the life he knew is turned upside down by his mother's overdose, and Truman steps in to raise the children she's left behind. Truman's hard, he's secretive, and he's trying to save a brother who's even more broken than he is. He's never needed help in his life, and when beautiful Gemma Wright tries to step in, he's less than accepting. But Gemma has a way of slithering into people's lives and eventually she pierces through his ironclad heart. When Truman's dark past collides with his future, his loyalties will be tested, and he'll be faced with his toughest decision yet.
