Behind the Screens: Tuesday Author Interview

Every Tuesday, get to know a bit about the stories behind the books you love, and discover your next favourite novel.

An Icy Road to a Warm Heart

Sabitha: Today we’ll talk to Nichol DeCastra about her first novel, An Icy Road to a Warm Heart. Nichol, lovely to have you here! Can you introduce us to your book?

Nichol: The first book I ever published is called An Icy Road to a Warm Heart.  The book is about a young woman named Dominique Miller, who is fleeing her abusive ex over the holidays and runs into a trucker, Edgar Himura, who offers to drive her to her family’s house. Along the way, they fall in love. 

Sabitha: What inspired you to write this book?

Nichol: The ending scene of the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre, where the heroine is helped by a trucker, honestly inspired me. 

Sabitha: We have a lot of writers in our community. What’s your writing process?

Nichol: Somewhere between a pantser and plotter. I am mainly the former, but occasionally I will make notes about what I want to happen in the future.

Sabitha: What do you most want your readers to take away from reading your book?

Nichol: That there is hope in escaping an abusive relationship and finding love again.

Sabitha: That’s a lovely message. Thank you for sharing your interview. Where can the Night Beats community find you and your book?

Nichol: You can buy the book on Amazon. You can find me at Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and my website.
