UR : Tell us about A Wife's Betrayal.
MKP: A Wife's Betrayal is a novel about two wives Kennedi and Charlotte, from my novel Paparazzi, that are living a lie that's filled with ultimate betrayal. Kennedi's husband suffers from amnesia as she hides from him, her dark past and his true identity. Charlotte, newly widowed, is sleeping with the enemy and marries the man that she thinks murdered her husband. She seeps deep into the Mafia world and realizes, there's no getting out. As both of the wives lives collide, lives are lost, secrets are revealed, and their worlds are turned upside down, as the drama unfolds. Definitely another page turner!
UR: What inspired you to write this novel?
MKP: It’s actually a spinoff from Paparazzi. People wanted to know what happened to those characters. Well I thought that it would be great to have a new novel, that developed those characters even further. Charlotte shows growth and Kennedi is still crazy as ever, but in the end, it's all about understanding both of their journeys from where they've come from. A lot of time, we as people, judge without knowing what others have been through. That was my motivation.
UR: When was the moment that you realized that you wanted to become a writer?
MKP: I always wrote poetry as a teenager, and I always wanted to touch people thru literature. One day, I was speaking to my good friend, Tiffany. She raised a topic that I felt needed to be addressed on a larger platform. She was going through something in her relationship and said a powerful statement. She said that she felt she was being punished for everything her father did wrong to the women in his life. That statement hit home. Sometimes people don't realize how their actions can sometimes affect their seeds. Men sometimes don't realize how they treat women in relationships and how it could really come back on their daughters. I could definitely relate to that. That's how I built the relationship between Denie and Rich in The Dirty Divorce, and the rest is history!
UR: What is the best advice that a fellow writer has given you?
MKP: Save your money so when bigger projects surface, you can have ownership in your work. Here's my own advice I would offer to any writer that is reading this-
Always be a student and never be so married to your work that you don't embrace corrective criticism. Don't settle to be good, be the greatest. Be patient and stay connected to your readers.
UR: Name one thing that you know now that you wish you would have known at the beginning of your writing journey.
MKP: Learning the business side is important in order for growth. This industry has waves so you must invest in your growth.
UR: What do you want readers to know most about Miss KP the person?
MKP: Sometimes I feel I am misunderstood because of my brutal honesty...but I'm a loyal friend and through all my chaos in my busy life, my family comes first.
