If I were suddenly plunked into Sharon Lapidot’s life…
Michelle Dim St. Pierre
Oh dear! It’s one thing to imagine and write out Sharon’s life…it’s an entirely different matter to be in it!
As many of my readers know, Sharon is a headstrong, outspoken, independent woman—girl power! But with her affair with Dr. Sloan comes certain responsibilities: Should she continue her affair with Sloan? Should she keep the pregnancy? Are her actions morally wrong? I couldn’t imagine the amount of stress I would suddenly feel placed on my shoulders! Let’s face it I wrote it—I tried to deliver to you, the reader, this tremendous stress.
Although Sharon’s story is an exciting one full of romance, intrigue, and suspense, I’m not sure Pinnacle Lust starring Michelle Dim-St. Pierre as the novel’s protagonist would be quite as exciting. You see, while I enjoy writing about Sharon’s sultry love life, I’m not sure how I could possibly live it! But remember I’m no longer in my twenties.
And now the secret’s out—while in my fifties, I’m boring, bland and nondescript. My idea of a hot night out is going with my husband to the dinner. And while I am a married woman, it just even doesn’t cross my mind to think as a mistress.
But heck, let’s throw all caution to the wind and say that I’m Sharon in the midst of her love affair with Dr. Sloan. Let’s say I would be young again and wouldn’t crumble under the thought of possibly destroying a marriage, that I had no qualms about following my heart.
Young people think differently. I probably would have the time of my life. Forget the sanctity of marriage, and forget Mrs. Sloan—Dr. Sloan and I would be in love and nobody could stop us!
But when things take an unexpected turn for the worst, and the affair is discovered, as most are in time, well, then I wouldn’t want to travel in her shoes. Funny how the shoes soon shrink and become uncomfortable.
I applaud Sharon for her ability to deal with Sloan in a levelheaded way. I’m not sure that if I were in Sharon’s shoes, I would have been able to act the same way.
Perhaps it’s a good thing that I’m not Sharon Lapidot—that instead, thousands of readers across the globe can appreciate how she handles these situations instead of me. Let’s just say that if it were Michelle Dim-St. Pierre as the novel’s protagonist, the story wouldn’t be quite as interesting!

About Michelle Dim-St. Pierre:
Michelle Dim-St. Pierre was born in Tel-Aviv, Israel, where she spent more than half of her life before relocating to the United States.
She lived through four wars and served in the Israel Defense Forces for two years. Unlike her first year of service in an armored division in the Golan Heights, she spent her second year serving in the medical corps where she interacted directly with the injured soldiers of the Peace of Galilee war and their families. This interaction, along with the exposure to the hospital atmosphere, fascinated Michelle and further touched her heart.
After graduating from nursing school with a BS in Nursing in Tel-Aviv, she practiced internationally for 32 years in various positions in the surgical field and quickly advanced into health care administration. During her career she worked in the Operating Room, Recovery Room, and CCU—along with many other duties.
Writing was Michelle’s outlet at first, but it soon became her passion. Recently she left nursing and became a full-time writer. Her international background, along with her military and nursing experience is always at the tip of her pen. Her first novel, Pinnacle Lust, starts the Pinnacle trilogy.
Michelle is a world traveler who enjoys cooking epicurean food and creating original recipes.
