Interview with Willow Rose, author of Girl Next Door
23 Oct 2018
What can you tell us about your new release, Girl Next Door?
Girl Next Door is serial killer thriller/mystery based on a true story.
I spent a lot of time researching this killer’s mind. I watched and read interviews with an infamous serial killer and it scared me how cold and calculated he was. How he knew he was insane and was aware of what he did, but also how easy it was for him to get close to the police and trick them. Not to mention how he believed there were many more like him out there who just haven’t been caught or turned themselves in. Makes you want to lock your doors.
What books are currently on your night stand?
“What a girl needs from her Mom” by Cheri Fuller. I have two girls entering puberty and need all the advice I can get.
I am also currently reading “Bestseller” by Susan May. It’s really good.
Who is your favorite fictional character from literature?
As a child I was (and still am) madly in love with Atreyu from The Never-Ending Story. It’s my favorite book of all time and I re-read it often.
If you could have dinner with anyone, alive or dead, who would you choose and why?
Jesus. Why not? I have a lot of questions.
Where is your happy place? Why does it bring you joy?
In the ocean, surfing. Every time waves are good you’ll find me out there. It’s where I get most ideas too. When I am relaxed and just having fun.
When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be a writer or an actress. I also had a phase when I wanted to be a singer, but I can’t carry a tune.
What scene in Girl Next Door was your favorite to write?
The one where the real killer is revealed. It’s so loaded with emotions and surprises. I truly enjoyed writing both this scene and the rest of the book. It gave me the chills though. Since a lot of it actually happened.
