Library's Urban Fiction Series Turns Spotlight To Bestselling Author Victoria Christopher Murray

Sheridan, Kendall, and Asia bonded at a church prayer support gathering, and since have helped one another through the tragedies of their relationship breakups.

But in Forever an Ex, the new novel by bestselling author Victoria Christopher Murray, the ladies' newfound stability is threatened when the men who once shared their lives return. Old desires are rekindled. Existing relationships are upset.

Murray reads from and discusses Forever an Ex on Wednesday, June 25, 2014, at 6:30 p.m. at the Central Library, 14 W. 10th St.

Her books, The Washington Post says, have "the kind of momentum that prompts you to elbow disbelief aside and flip the pages in horrified enjoyment." In Forever An Ex, things get typically sticky for the heroines.

  • Sheridan, who has found love again after her former husband left her for a man, is stunned when the ex reappears with his fiancĂ©e - a woman!
  • Kendall's ex-husband is now married to her sister, whom Kendall has shunned for years. But they're forced to reconnect when their father is diagnosed with cancer.
  • Asia has done her best to forget her time with a married boyfriend, a former NBA star, but finds old desires resurfacing when they share a kiss.


A native of Queens, New York, Murray majored in communication disorders at Hampton University and, after graduating from there, earned an MBA at New York University. She originally self-published her first novel, Temptation, which was picked up by Time Warner in 2000.

She has written 15 more novels, including Scandalous, Destiny's Divas, and Sins of the Mother. Murray is the co-author (with ReShonda Tate Billingsley) of the "First Ladies" series of novels about three preachers' wives.

This event is part of the Library's Urban Fiction Series.

A 6 p.m. reception precedes the presentation. Admission is free, and free parking is available in the Library District parking garage at 10th and Baltimore. RSVP at or call 816.701.3407.
