A good part of this story is inspired by real events

A bit of the real is that my father did call me five minutes before he boarded the plane to America after years of never verbally speaking, not once, as father and daughter, only via emails after COVID-19 struck.

Murdering Romance is a fictional story about one woman whose love for peanuts unknowingly sealed her fate, her missing father who had a lot to say about his absence in her life, and a little time to say it, then suddenly none at all, her ex lovers who had a lot of her to kiss, but not to love, never to love.

Mukami wants to understand love, and has spent all her life understanding death, like picking up yellow flowers from the brown earth and having them turn a pale blue in your hand. And she has lived a long life. And she is tired. She has been brave, and is tired of that face. She has written herself to fame, and is tired of the fame.
