Chatting with Amour, author of Child Support

They say you should never judge a book by it's cover. As an author who's had a couple of jacked up covers, that old saying is so true.
Take the novel Child Support by Amour for instance. If you think this is a typical story, be prepared to have your socks knocked right off.


Angel Jacobs has a stunning face and a petite, drop-dead body. She has two jobs and an apartment in a pricey Chicago neighborhood. She has a sister with Down’s syndrome, a mother with cancer and a daughter she hasn’t seen in years. She has bipolar disorder, hallucinations and short-term memory loss. She has hot nights with one handsome man after another, but she doesn’t have a lot of second dates—because the men she sleeps with always wind up dead. Does it have anything to do with the child her baby daddy won’t let her see?

Angel is distressed by the rash of murders in her neighborhood, yet she doesn’t quite connect them to her increasingly bloody home…but eventually, the police do. Branded a serial killer, Angel goes on the run.
Amour spoke to me about her writing journey and her unique novel.

This is a different take on Child Support. Where did you find the inspiration to tell this story?



Well, actually my mentor First gave me the idea of a girl killing people because she thought that they were her child's father. I took that and put my own flavor to it. 
 
What has the reaction to this unique story been from readers? 


They love it! They enjoy the fact that it's a different type of urban read.  



What’s next on the horizon for you?



I plan on going on tour sometime in the spring and continue delivering stories that people love.


Will we see Angel again?   

Well, I'm currently working on the sequel to Child Support. So, I'm sure you all will be seeing Angel sooner than later.
