My Friend Amber Roshay's Book: Reaching Prague


Amber and I met in college. Our common interests have included college theatre department rebellion, living abroad, creative urban dwelling and writing. She's one of the most talented writers I've encountered. Her writing is compelling, emotionally raw, it's simply spell-binding. She's just published her novel, Reaching Prague and will soon have her second title, How the fat girl got thin published. If you're in the market for a sweet spring read, check out the synopsis and the link to her website below:

Reaching Prague is a darkly psychological tale of adultery set in contemporary Prague. Betrayed by her husband, Sarah Billings flees to Prague in an effort to cope his duplicity and to figure out the rest of her life. In Prague she meets Mikul, a handsome bar owner with mafia ties, who at first seems to be exactly what she needs.

Soon they are conducting an illicit affair filled with erotic tension, painful awakenings and looming violence. Slowly, as the seduction intensifies, Sarah begins to lose herself in the dark underbelly of Mikul’s reality. She must choose between subjugation and salvation.

Mesmorizing and artfully constructed, Reaching Prague, is a personal journey into the exploration of deception, desire and, ultimately, the many layers of the human heart.

Writing Inspiration

I just answered this reader question over at Goodreads and thought I would post my answer here as well. If you write, what inspires you? How do you get inspired to write? M.J. GreenwayThere are so many times when I'm inspired by something I've read or watched on TV. For example, I remember reading Gone Girl and yearning to be able to one day write a book that well crafted.
That said, most of the writing time isn't about inspiration, it's just about writing most days and seeing where you get. I write an outline and start with a few characters and conflicts and an idea for an ending. As days pass, more details occur to me and snowball into a full fledged story over time. Walks or bike rides can help too.
For my romantic mysteries, Sarah Starting Over and Greyson Starting Over, I wanted to write about parenting and grief and my friend urged me to write about a disabled character. Because of my childhood love of Murder She Wrote, I also wanted to try my hand and writing a mys…

Bachelor in Paradise

I admit to watching a few episodes of Bachelor in Paradise. It's purely for research purposes. Lol. I just don't understand Amanda's bad taste in men who moan loudly on camera when they kiss. And also, now I want to read Andi's book about their break-up. What is your reality show guilty pleasure?
