Authorial Intrusion - Cheryl Renee Herbsman

Happy May Day!

I’m delighted to host my fellow debut author, Cheryl Renee Herbsman, today on Authorial Intrusion.

What if the guy who took your breath away was the only one who could help you breathe?

In Breathing , Savannah would be happy to spend the summer in her coastal Carolina town lying in a hammock reading romance novels and working at the library. But then she meets Jackson. Once they lock eyes, she’s convinced he’s the one—her true love, her soul mate, a boy different from all the rest. And at first it looks like Savannah is right. Jackson abides by her mama’s strict rules, and stays by her side during a hospitalization for severe asthma. But when he’s called away to help his family—and seems uncertain about returning—Savannah has to learn to breathe on her own, both literally and figuratively.

Cheryl Renée Herbsman lives in Northern California with her husband and two children, but she grew up in North Carolina and often spent summer vacations at the Carolina coast. Like Savannah, she fell in love as a teenager, and like Savannah and Jackson, she and her boyfriend carried on a long-distance relationship. They are now celebrating their twentieth wedding anniversary.
