Five for Friday Author Barbara Cutrera

What was the hardest book for you to write? Compromising Positions because of some of the gritty personal experiences from my life that I wove into the novel.

Michael Benedetto of A Lovely Dream and A Lovely Reality because he’s a sexy, smart, funny, strong veteran – who would give me the time of my life while appreciating me for who I am.

Barbara Cutrera is the author of contemporary romance, romantic suspense, paranormal romance, fiction, and mystery novels.  She became addicted to reading and creative writing at an early age but didn’t decide to write her first novel until she was in her 30s.  Even then, she was unaware that she was destined for a writing career. Barbara, who is visually impaired, was a rehabilitation counselor before she became a fulltime author.  She believes our minds are only limited by the restrictions we place upon them.  Her greatest passions are for writing, reading, spending time with family and friends, listening to music, cooking, and drinking Dr. Pepper.  Originally from Louisiana, Barbara, her husband, and their son moved to southwest Florida in 2004 and love the diversity of their coastal community.
