Interview: Authors ‘Heather Cocks And Jessica Morgan’ Talk The New Book The Heir Affair (The Royal We 2)

Longtime friends Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan have been writing together since 2004, when they co-founded Go Fug Yourself, a popular snarky celebrity-fashion site. Together, they’ve penned two young adult novels — Spoiled and Messy — and The Royal We, a work of adult contemporary fiction based loosely on the courtship of Prince William and Kate Middleton that was a USA Today bestseller, a People magazine editor’s pick, and a New York Times summer reading list selection. The Royal We was recently optioned by Lauren Graham, Mae Whitman, and CBS Films. They have also written for various publications, ranging from Grazia to New York to Redbook.

Check out their website here, Twitter and Facebook. The book is in stores now. You can listen below to the interview.

After a scandalous secret turns their fairy-tale wedding into a nightmare, Rebecca “Bex” Porter and her husband Prince Nicholas are in self-imposed exile. The public is angry. The Queen is even angrier. And the press is salivating. Cutting themselves off from friends and family, and escaping the world’s judgmental eyes, feels like the best way to protect their fragile, all-consuming romance.

But when a crisis forces the new Duke and Duchess back to London, the Band-Aid they’d placed over their problems starts to peel at the edges. Now, as old family secrets and new ones threaten to derail her new royal life, Bex has to face the emotional wreckage she and Nick left behind: with the Queen, with the world, and with Nick’s brother Freddie, whose sins may not be so easily forgotten — nor forgiven.
