Author Interview: Stalker, My Love by Zack Scott

Release: May 14th, 2017
Type: Mystery/Thriller/Romance, New Adult

Welcome to Pine Bridge, a small town where secrets are rife, personal is everyone’s business, and passion is high.

With the disappearance of Rosalyn Ray, tensions soar and fingers point in every direction: the lover, the mother, the best friend, and the stalker.

Frustrated by the search going nowhere, Rhett Calloway makes it his mission to discover the truth, find the girl, and win her heart. Some people in Pine Bridge say he’s obsessed. Some say he’s dangerous. Some say he’s hurt Rosalyn. All Rhett knows is he’s loved Rosalyn since they were kids and he’ll do what it takes to see her again.

Stalker, My Love is an untraditional love story where fantasy clashes with reality, and happily ever after seems like an elusive dream. Told through four POVs, the story follows those closest to Rosalyn Ray.

Author Interview
I'm excited to have author Zach Scott on the blog today to discuss her newest release, STALKER, MY LOVE.
Thanks for sharing, Zach!

Give us the "elevator pitch" for Stalker, My Love.
When a young woman vanishes from a small town, her stalker sets out to find her.

How did Stalker, My Love come to be? What was your inspiration to write the book?
I love a whodunit, and wanted to explore a stalker as a protagonist in the investigation. The person the stalker is obsessed with vanishes. What’s the ultimate goal of the stalker in finding the person? Is it selfish or selfless?

I also like pizza. There’s a small mystery about pizza in the book.

What lead you to writing a mystery/thriller/romance??
The first book I wrote, a story about selfish friends in a zombie apocalypse, was full of blood, gore, and mayhem. I then followed up with two sequels, and a book about an angry shark eating people. All four of those stories contain elements of mystery, thriller and romance, but I wanted to write something focused on those genres without all the chaotic violence.

Just some of the chaotic violence.

So I came up with Stalker, My Love a while back when I was writing a crime thriller (yet to be released), and the story fell naturally into those genres.

How would you describe Stalker, My Love in only three words?
A love story.

Do you listen to music while you write? What are some tunes on your playlist?
Sometimes. I used to frequently listen to music while writing, but don’t as often now because I can get pretty distracted and start singing (terribly). So now if I listen to music, it’s usually something instrumental, like Explosions in the Sky and This Will Destroy You.

What are you reading right now, or what is on your TBR list?
I’m looking forward to Dennis Lehane’s new novel Since We Fell.

  6. Seems like an exciting read! Enjoyed the interview :)

  7. I'm surprised the author considers this a love story if the stalker is trying to find her. Very interesting to see the stalker as a protagonist. I wonder how people know and have done nothing about him stalking her. She probably left because of him or some other mystery that Rhett found her to be.

    I love stalker movies/books because I'm weird I guess. I'm adding this on goodreads for sure. Plus, there is a pizza mystery and I want to know what that's about haha (:

  8. I think this whole idea is weird, but I can see how things would work out. This really does sound like an interesting story.
