Interview with Rachel Hargrove, author of Sick Girl
21 Mar 2018
What can you tell us about your new release, Sick Girl?
Sick Girl is a psychological thriller told in dual point of views. The first explores a young woman’s desperate attempt to win the man she loves by killing his wife, Melissa. The second point of view follows Melissa, who has no idea of her husband’s affair or the plot to kill her. There are many twists, turns, and surprises.
What’s the last book you read?
The Perfect Roommate by Minka Kent. Another great psychological thriller.
What or who inspired you to become an author?
I’ve always written fiction as a hobby. For so many years, traditional publishing houses were the gatekeepers to a career in writing books. Getting a deal, let alone an agent, seemed like a fantasy until Amazon’s kindle-publishing platform. I dove in headfirst, quit my job, and never looked back.
What fictional literary world would you most like to visit?
What’s a typical day like for you?
I roll out of bed between 9-10am, make myself breakfast, and chat with my author friends before starting work. I like bouncing from café to café to write my books. At lunch, I take a break to exercise. I end the day pretty late, around 8pm. I’m a workaholic.
BAM. You’re a superhero. What’s your superpower?
I could do with Jessica Jones’ superhuman strength!
What scene in Sick Girl was your favorite to write?
I can’t describe it, because it’ll spoil too much. You’ll know it when you see it. It’s near the end. 🙂
Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?
Be as you wish to seem.
