SynopsisBlind Obsession

Obsession, defined as the domination of one’s thoughts or feelings by a persistent idea, image or desire….

Chantel Rosenberg’s passion for music and life had never shone brighter than the time she spent in Bordeaux France. It’s a time when feelings arose and desires ran deep, a time that fundamentally changed her life.

A man living in seclusion, Phillipe Tibideau is haunted and plagued by memories he cannot disregard. Choosing to live a quiet life in his Chateau surrounded by the vineyards of France, he’s left his passion for art behind.

However, the time has arrived to tell his side of a tale. A tale that has depicted him as a ‘beautiful monster’ and he’s finally allowing someone close.

Close enough to ask questions. Questions he’s not sure he wants to answer. Questions about her.

For up and coming journalist Gemma Harris, the pursuit of truth is what drives her and when a job of a lifetime presents itself there is nothing in the world that will stop her from taking it. Even if it does mean leaving her home for several months to stay at Chateau Tibideau, with him.

This is a story of what happens when three passionate lovers collide and the desire for truth, art and music merge.

Chateau Tibideau is a place full of unanswered questions, dark sinful desire and a beauty so hauntingly sad it will have you wondering how you will ever leave the same….

What means the most to you – great writing or a great story? And why?

This a great question and one I have never been asked before. I wish I could cheat and say both however, if I am being honest it is a great story. I feel like originality and character depth is a must. Plus if you have a great story, that to me would imply that there was good flow and then, you can then hire and editor.

Do you write to music, if so, What music do you write to?

I do have set playlists when I write and they differ from current Top 40’s to old classics. I actually listen to the music before I start and then usually turn it off and go from there, that way the mood is set but I am not distracted. Although recently when writing my upcoming novel Blind Obsession I listened to classical music through the entire process.

What are 5 things would you take with you if you were stranded on a deserted island?

Oh wow – let me see. 1) My husband. 2) The BDB series (I could read them all day) 3) A satellite radio that we could wind up – the type you have during a hurricane. 4) A first aid kit. 5) Some seeds to plant for vegetables.

What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?

I don’t work with an outline or notes. I never write down my thoughts in advance I just sit down and as I like to call it “word blurt”. A friend of mine who is also an author finds this very strange because she outlines and does a timeline for everything. I guess everyone works different but for me I just sit down and –go.

If you could have one superpower what would it be?

To fly! That way I could visit my parents and family in Australia for free.

Favorite book by someone else?

The Blackdagger Brotherhood By JR WARD – I love that series.

What is the last book you read?

Beauty from Pain

If you could trade places with any other person for a week, famous or not famous, living or dead, real or fictional. With whom would it be?

I would want to be Elizabeth Bennet the week she married Mr. Darcy. She succeeded in helping her family and married the man she loved. Not to mention a full week of honeymooning with Darcy.

If Hollywood made a movie about your life, whom would you like to see play the lead role as you?

I would pick Ashely Judd. She’s sweet, sassy stubborn and smart.

How would you describe yourself in three words?

Energetic, positive, impulsive
