Interview with Monica Murphy, Author of A Million Kisses in

What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write A Million Kisses in Your Lifetime?

A variety of little pieces came together to inspire this book. I planned on starting a different book about a different Lancaster but this one came to my mind (Crew) and demanded to be heard.

I knew he’d go to Lancaster Prep (just like my other characters did in Things I Wanted to Say). I knew she would be sweet and innocent and he wouldn’t be at all. I read an article about a very wealthy couple who divorced and had to split up their very coveted art collection and how it was sold at auction. That intrigued me so I came up with Wren’s parents. I thought it would be fun to make Wren interested in art as well and started looking up pieces and… that’s how it really came together. When I found a specific piece that became the thing Wren wanted more than anything else.

What’s your favorite genre to read? Is it the same as your favorite genre to write?

I love to read contemporary romance, thrillers, and the occasional YA.

What books are on your TBR pile right now?

I am currently reading Tessa Bailey’s Hook, Line and Sinker and Kiss to Belong by Anna B. Doe is next up.

What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

There were so many in this book! Near the end, when Crew starts sending gifts to Wren. Those scenes were fun.

Do you have any quirky writing habits? (lucky mugs, cats on laps, etc.)

It’s not something I do, but my cat is always trying to hover over my keyboard and watch me write with a judgmental look on his face LOL.

Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?

This sounds so corny but I try to live by, “Ask for it. The worst they could say is no.” I’d rather regret it not working out than never asking for it at all…

If you could choose one thing for readers to remember after reading your book, what would it be?

What it felt like to fall in love for the very first time. That’s what I was going for between Crew and Wren. Wondrous, all consuming, love.
