The Writer's View: Christina Tetreault

Thankfully, I am able to dream and come up with story ideas no matter where I am , a trait that comes in very handy as a mother of three small children who is always on the go.

Currently, I live in New England and I can not imagine living in any other place. Granted, I am not a huge fan of the cold and snowy winters, but I do love the four seasons, especially the fall. There is just something about the smell and feel outside as the leaves change color and fall from the trees. As a writer I am perhaps a little different in that I do not always write and come up with ideas in the same place. I do not have an office with a desk and a chair. I write everywhere from sitting on my bed to the Starbucks inside the bookstore in the next town over. Since everyone has seen the inside of Starbucks and trust me know one wants to see my messy bedroom, I am sharing with you a picture I took from the window of my in-laws' home this past summer. It is a place that I often go to that inspires ideas. As you can see the home is located on a lake. In the summer, you can see everything from sailboats to fishing boats and everything in the middle. As a lover of nature it's the perfect place for me to reflect on my characters and their stories.

About the Author:
I wrote my first story with characters similar to those in the Sweet Valley Twins books at the age of 10 on my grandmother's manual typewriter. As I got older my stories and characters became more mature. During my freshman year at UMass Dartmouth, I read my first romance novel and fell in love with the genre. I have been writing contemporary romance ever since.

Today I live with my husband, three beautiful daughters and two dogs in Massachusetts. Whenever I have a free moment you'll find me either reading a romance novel or working on my most current story.

She's spent her life avoiding love

Captain Charlotte “Charlie” O'Brien, a doctor in the United States Navy, returns to her home in North Salem, Massachusetts to visit her family and make an important decision about her future. Mother Nature has other plans when a hurricane strikes, flooding the town and throwing Jake Sherbrooke in Charlie's path. Initially she believes Jake is nothing more than a rich playboy, but quickly, she learns that he is so much more.

The media calls him Prince Charming

Jake Sherbrooke has never been one to follow the path laid out by his parents. That is why he started the Falmouth Foundation, a non-profit disaster relief organization rather than enter politics. When he learns of the destruction in North Salem, he immediately travels there to offer aid and meets Charlie O'Brien. Charlie is unlike any woman he has ever meet and he cannot help but be drawn to her.

Soon neither can ignore the incredible chemistry between them. But will his reputation as a billionaire playboy damage their budding romance?

I'll picture you near the lake writing away. A wonderful image. Better than a messy bedroom I agree.
