{Guest Post!} Cheating to Survive

Hi everybody! I have a special guest post today from Christine Ardigo, Registered Dietitian and Novelist!  Give Christine a warm welcome, and go check out her book!  I mean, come on, it features clinical dietitians!

Hello! My name is Christine Ardigo, I’m a Registered Dietitian and a Personal Trainer but my love has always been for writing. Sure I wrote for high school and college newspapers, and yes I even created and contributed to many Hospital Nutrition Department’s Newsletters but my love for creating stories (basically lying about events for fun and getting away with it) was not happening.

I sat down behind my computer two years ago and began writing. I ditched two whole books, learned how to do it correctly and started over. I was devastated at first. Now what do I write about?

Then it came to me. So many Contemporary Romance novels had the lead women as lawyers and journalists, or some didn’t work at all. Why were there no dietitians in any novels? Well except for this one:

amorous dietitian

(I tried to buy it, by the way – it’s not available)

What if I wrote a book about us!

Cheating to Survive was created from this. The three lead characters, Heather, Victoria, and Catherine are all co-workers at Norlyn plains Hospital, working as dietitians. I had fun working their daily life into the book and enjoyed showing everyone what the life of a clinical dietitian was really like.

Book Blurb:

Can Cheating on Your Husband Bring Unimaginable Pleasure or Completely Destroy Your World?

To her three daughters, Heather is a fun-loving, silly mom. Her co-workers at Norlyn Plains Hospital think she has it all, including a handsome lawyer husband.

But when a flirtatious new doctor chooses Heather to spend his down time with, he reminds her of the man she regrettably gave up so many years before. Each interaction breathes new life into her and she gives in to the doctor’s seductions, threatening her fifteen-year marriage.

Her co-workers Victoria and Catherine, are stunned by her actions, but when they see the positive transformation in Heather, and question their own crumbling marriages, they wonder if she has the right idea.

Can cheating on their husbands bring the three of them happiness? Or will they be destroyed by the consequences?

Author Bio:

Christine Ardigo

I’m a registered dietitian/personal trainer who writes contemporary romance novels in my spare time. When weight lifting, rock climbing, white-water rafting and jumping out of airplanes wasn’t enough, I decided to fulfill a dream I had as a child: to write a book.

I’ve lived in New York my entire life and can’t imagine living anywhere else. I have the beaches, the bay and the city, all a half hour away. I’ve built memories here with my husband, two silly daughters and a bunch of crazy friends, all whom I love very much.
