Interview with Mack Mulluncey, author of "Euthanasia"


ABOUT MACK MULLUNCEY

Mack Mulluncey considered writing a traditional bio, then she remembered no one really cares. You can visit her at:
Q: Welcome to The Writer's Life, Mack.  Can you tell us a little bit about yourself and how long you’ve been writing?

A: I’ve been writing stories since I was a kid. For as long as I can remember, stories and words have been a huge part of my life.

Q: Can you please tell us about your book and why you wrote it?

A: Euthanasia is about a radical anti-abortion group that is plotting to kill the local abortion doctor. Although much of their rhetoric is what you would expect from a pro-life group, when you scratch the surface of the people involved in the group, you find that their motivations are more personal than political.

I wrote the book in the mid-nineties after watching a talk show about those haunted houses where they show you aborted fetuses and whatnot. After seeing that show, I became intrigued with the idea of absurdly extreme behaviors that a group could engage in to get their political point across.

Q: What were some of the biggest challenges you faced writing it?

A: Although the antagonist of the novel is a pretty reprehensible person, to write him convincingly I really needed to climb into his mind and channel his thoughts—disgusting though they may be. Writing villains can be a lot of fun, but also difficult emotionally.

Also, there’s a scene where one of the characters gets raped, and that was pretty grueling to write. I felt emotionally beaten up when I wrote and edited that scene.

Q: Do you plan subsequent books?

A: Absolutely! I’m currently working on a novel that I hope to have finished by the end of the year, as well as a series of short stories.
  
Q: Thank you for your interview, Mack.  Would you like to tell my readers where they can find you on the web and how everyone can buy your book?

A: You can find me at www.mackfiction.com and blog.mackfiction.com. Euthanasia is available on Kindle, Nook, and Kobo.



Euthanasia Cover (3)ABOUT EUTHANASIA

When Alex left the clinic that day, she thought she could move on from the rape that left her pregnant and the agonizing decision to have an abortion. That is, until the child she thought she left behind contacts her. Terrorized by mysterious phone calls and guilt, Alex feels her sanity slipping away as she becomes convinced that she must find the man who brutalized her to make a family for her dead daughter.
Anti-abortion crusader Tobin Bartell wouldn’t have it any other way. As The Leader of The Movement, when he’s not organizing protests or giving speeches, he’s orchestrating a campaign of harassment against women like Alex…and plotting to kill the local abortion doctor.
And Tobin has no shortage of candidates for the job: Paige wants money, Courtney wants love, Derek wants to belong. Tobin just wants it done…and it doesn’t matter to him who does it.
Life. Death. Murder. It’s all the same to them.
