Val Muller

Thank you, Remmy, for inviting me today!

I’m Val Muller, author of For Whom My Heart Beats Eternal, an erotic sci-fi tale. I like to genre-hop, so this is my first published romance/erotic tale, but I’ve written horror, sci-fi, and fantasy, and I even have a middle-grade mystery novel for kids ages 8-12 available. As a high-school English teacher, I’m constantly reading and re-reading the classics year after year, so in my writing I like to change it up. My favorite author is Ray Bradbury—which probably explains the speculative twist in most of my fiction. But I enjoy any author whose work explores what makes us human, whether that truth is inspiring, painful, or both. That’s what I love so much about reading—what the characters go through reminds me that I’m human and I’m not alone.

For Whom My Heart Beats Eternal is a time-travel romance with a sci-fi twist, involving a physics grad student, her 65-year-old professor, and… robots! What inspired me to write the story was the idea of a soul mate. It’s often said that love is love—regardless of who it’s between. But I wondered: what happens if the person you’re meant to be with is born to a different generation, making that love impossible? In this story, Anna has always felt a certain pull toward her professor, but the age difference made it impossible to pursue her feelings. When a physics experiment goes wrong, Anna is sent into the past—forty years into the past. To a time when her aging physics professor is a student himself—barely older than Anna. This story also allowed me to play with paradox, one of the most intriguing elements of a sci-fi tale. If Anna reveals too much about her professor’s future forty years too soon, how will that affect the rest of his life?

If you enjoy stories with heat, sci-fi, and love (and robots!), then this is the tale for you.

Thanks for stopping by!

"This story is about two grown ass gay men that each have a little doubt for one reason or another if their relationship will work. The story is conveyed well and kept completely on the adult playing field, I loved it! When these two get going in the bedroom it is passionate and sensual."--TSM
