Tell us about the process you went through to write this book including research, time, etc.:
I have written poetry and short stories since I was a teenager. I started writing romantic stories that eventually lead to my first manuscript and then a future manuscript that was actually published. I am a romantic at heart and read a great deal of passionate fiction. Writing amorous literature comes naturally for me.
What was the inspiration to write this book?
I am very dreamy romantic and also have a vivid imagination. Part of my inspiration for this book began when I purchased a very beautiful handmade wooden chest that had a carving on the front. The carving was a cabin surrounded by pine trees, it had a pathway to the door and there was “smoke” coming from the chimney. It was charming and quixotic. I stared at it and my mind just wove an intricate love story about the person carving in the wood. Once the characters are on the paper, they really take over and tell their own story! I find myself typing faster and faster to find out what happens next!
What was your goal in writing this book and what do you hope readers gain from it?
This book was done for pure pleasure. If this book makes people smile or find a renewed faith in romance and love…. Then I’m very happy! It is not your ordinary love story. It is a taboo tale of people falling in love who are married to others. It’s about the tough decisions they made and the impact it had on the rest of their lives.
