Today, I’m interviewing indie author Sacha T.Y. Fortuné. I liked her debut contemporary romance novel, Climbing The Walls, very much. Her characters and their struggles are still deeply entrenched in my mind.

“We’re Kris and Nicole. We’re supposed to fit.”

Kris fell head over heels in love with Nicole, the promiscuous waitress that everybody warned him against. But he didn’t listen. He loved her. Six years and two adorable kids later, he still loves her. However, Nicole is hardly ever around for the kids, or for him. One call from the boss, Darren Hart, and she is off to work.

Kris was the best thing that happened to Nicole—the girl who had always been alone. A dysfunctional family and a father who could never hold a job for long resulted in Nicole working her ass off since she was young. And then one fine day, Kris enters her life. Six years later, she is now a journalist and moonlights as a (successful) novelist. She is a workaholic, which severely diminishes her time with family. Add into this precarious mix the marital troubles of her overbearing boss-cum-best friend, Darren, and her life is ready to tip over the edge.

Can Kris and Nicole save their marriage?
