Another author has made a visit to the blog.  Welcome Cheryl Shireman, author of  Broken Resolutions. 

Title:   Broken Resolutions

Author:   Cheryl Shireman

Genre:   Fiction, Chick-Lit

Blurb:   From the author who created Life is But a Dream, comes the much anticipated second novel – Broken Resolutions! Now with Discussion Questions for book clubs.

Six long-time friends gather for their annual New Year’s Eve party. They are meeting at Craig and Hannah’s spectacular home in the country. Hannah is a best-selling romance novelist. Craig is her adoring husband. All seems perfect.

Except nothing is. No one knows that Craig left Hannah several months ago and is living across town with another woman. Tonight, Craig and Hannah will play the part one more time. Because tomorrow will be soon enough for broken dreams and reality. Tonight, they just have to get through the party.

But they didn’t plan on the snowstorm. A snowstorm that will keep them all snowed in together for the next three days. Which is plenty of time for secrets to be discovered, for illusions to be shattered, and for resolutions to be broken.

So, dab a little perfume behind your ear, put your party dress on, and slip into your favorite heels. You’re invited to the party!

What inspired you to become a writer?

I actually was writing years before the thought ever crossed my mind that I could actually be a writer. For some reason, there was a disconnect there for me. The idea of being a writer seemed like such a fantasy that it took me years to even consider the possibility. Eventually, I sent my first article to a magazine and it was accepted. I was paid twelve dollars. But more importantly, that small check convinced me that I could really be a writer.

Why should people read your book?

Broken Resolutions was a fun book to write, and I have already heard from readers who have said it is a fun book to read. It is like getting invited to a great party. As the reader, you can snuggle into a chair with your Kindle, Nook, or paperback and attend the party right along with the guests.

Can you relate to any of the characters and why?  

I actually have a harder time relating to the characters in Broken Resolutions than I did in my first novel, Life is But a Dream. But I think there is a bit of the writer in every character, so there are certain aspects of every character in every novel that I can probably relate to.

Tell your readers something personal about you?

Hmmmm. I have already shared two of my “babies” with them. Isn’t that personal enough? Let’s see. How about I love watching old re-runs of the tv show Gunsmoke. Especially ones with Festus in them. Those are my favorites.
