USA TODAY and AMAZON bestselling romance Author, Cristiane Serruya lives in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, with her six-foot-six husband, two teenage daughters, and Loki, her Shetland sheepdog. Cris is a writer, a lawyer, a reader; a woman, a mother, and a wife. Not necessarily in this order. Or in any order...
She has a Master's in Business Law and a BA in Fine Arts. In 2012, after twenty-two years of practicing law, Cris decided to give writing a go. And—amazingly—it was just the piece that was missing in the puzzle of her life.
She loves to hear from readers so fell free to stalk her online. Visit www.crisserruya.com and grab one e-book and one audiobook left there only for you.

Hey everyone,

I want to share with you the second part of the interview that resulted in my romance From the Baroness's Diary III: The Happily Ever AfterS.

After talking to everyone together, I spent a few minutes alone with Angelo to discuss a sensitive subject.

So, today, we have the sweet Angelo Di Luca talking a bit about his youth experience and how he overcame it.

“Nonetheless, risk is a part of life.”
Cristiane Serruya, Trust: A New Beginning

“Passion is a sickness. It confounds and makes you do things just to please the other person. Quite different from love. In love you find delight despite the person’s flaws.”
Cristiane Serruya, Trust: A New Beginning

“But if one stops believing in dreams, life loses its meaning, loses its colors.”

Topics Mentioning This Author

“Elmore Leonard's Ten Rules of Writing

1. Never open a book with weather.
2. Avoid prologues.
3. Never use a verb other than "said" to carry dialogue.
4. Never use an adverb to modify the verb "said”…he admonished gravely.
5. Keep your exclamation points under control. You are allowed no more than two or three per 100,000 words of prose.
6. Never use the words "suddenly" or "all hell broke loose."
7. Use regional dialect, patois, sparingly.
8. Avoid detailed descriptions of characters.
9. Don't go into great detail describing places and things.
10. Try to leave out the part that readers tend to skip.

My most important rule is one that sums up the 10.

If it sounds like writing, I rewrite it.”
Elmore Leonard

“War is strange. In the beginning it is about people; in the end it is about power. Power couldn’t care less how many die.”
Cristiane Serruya, Love Painted in Red
tags: power, war

“You know what I’ve learned? Most people are like a leaf, letting themselves drift and turn in the air. Eventually, they fall to the ground. But, others— very few others— are like stars. They have light within themselves to be their own guide. Sometimes, we look at the sky and don’t see the stars, because there is too much light bedimming them. To find the stars again, we have to go to a dark place.”
Cristiane Serruya, Love Painted in Red

“War comes home— invades it, literally— and every day is another combat. Only, there’s nothing available, nothing real to fight. And you never know when the next attack will come, only from whom it will come.”
Cristiane Serruya, Love Painted in Red

“With those words, she felt as though Tavish had uncovered some secret part of her— looked into her soul. It was what she felt when she was happy, but she had never thought of herself as a flower but more as a bird to whom the world was giving a chance to stretch out her wings and feel the wind caress her feathers. Then have me. Now. Here.
