An Interview with Tina Gayle
By Holly Hewson for The Romance Studio

HH: Tina, thank you so much for talking with us at TRS. Your featured book is CFO’s Affair and it’s an emotionally-charged tale of betrayal, loss, and... love? It’s part of the Executive Wives Club series. What can you tell us about this series?

TG: First, let me thank you for having me here at TRS. I love this series because of the ability to show the full spectrum of women’s life -- from the married single, to the single parent, to the empty nest syndrome, to the retirement years. These four women encounter it all after losing their husbands in a fatal car wreck. All the men were executives of a small logistic company. Having experienced this tragedy together, the women grow to depend on each other. This is their stories of recovery and growth.

HH: How do the first two books kick it off?

TG: The first book “Marketing Exec’s Widow” introduces you to the cast of characters and the pain of the loss of their husbands. Jennifer Larson has been a married single and is ready to move on with her life. She has grown attached to the other ladies but needs to make them see it is time for her to take steps to create a new life.

In the second book, “IT Exec’s Baby,” the story of the women continues with Brie Sullivan. In the first book you find out she is pregnant with her dead husband’s baby. This is her journey of coming to terms with losing her husband, raising her children alone and finding someone else to love.

HH: How does “CFO’s Affair” continue the series and will there be more to come?

TG: In CFO’s Affair, Sylvia Donovan is the main character. She has been in the first two books and the reader knows she has problems. Her husband asked for a divorce on the day he died. She also is dealing with her only daughter going off to college. She is looking for answers so she can move on with her life.

Yes, the last book in the series is “Dilemma of the CEO’s Widow.” The last book is about Marianne Clark. She has become the segregate mother to the group. Now, she needs to learn there is more to life than helping others find love. She has to open her heart and allow love into her own life.

HH: What do you like best about Sylvia and why will readers relate to her?

TG: Sylvia is a woman who has allowed life to beat her down. After her husband died, she reclaims her self-confidence by losing weight and trying new things. She’s brassy and harsh at time, but she deeply cares about her friends and family. I believe readers can related to all the heartache in her life and empathize with how she has to come to terms with the past and make a future for herself.

HH: What do you like best about Vince and why will readers love him?

TG: Vince is a nice guy. Yes, he’s sexy and handsome, but he has simple wants. He likes having a woman who he can have fun with. Yet, does he run when times get tough? No, he stands by the woman he loves and supports her decisions. He has a few scars but readers will love him because he’s just wants someone to share his life.

HH: What else do you have in store for lucky readers?

TG: As you can see by the Executive Wives’ Club series, I love not only the relationship between a man and a woman, but the cast around the couple. I have started a new series called the “Family Tree.” This series is about a family of spirits who help guide today’s generation. It spans time and brings home how important our family is to our future. The first book in the series is out “Summer’s Growth” and “Fallen Leaves” should be out by the end of the year.

HH: Where do you draw inspiration from?

TG: Mainly from my own life and from the people around me, I also can draw inspiration from books, TV and news articles. Seeing the pain of others, I like to turn that heartache into a growing process which brings recovery and joy. That’s why I love writing romance because through love my characters can discover a new world which they never believed existed.

HH: What's your writing schedule like?

TG: I work eight to ten hours a day. My writing schedule is to write three to four hours at the beginning of the day. Then I log onto the internet and write up blogs, twits, handle marketing demands and check email. In the afternoon, I return to my writing and edit my manuscript.
