Author Biography

My name is Vina St. Fran. As an author, I like creating stories about powerful, kick-ass women who make it happen in the boardroom and the bedroom without apologies. You will find my novels may contain characters of different ethnic backgrounds who add spice to the plot, and makes for interesting reading.

My female heroines are confident and charismatic, yet they are vulnerable when it comes to matters of the heart. The realism is heartfelt, for to love is to risk. They find certain situations push them to the brink of despair, yet in the middle of it all they manage to enjoy amazing, fulfilling sex lives with their significant others, which is thrilling and downright erotic. The end result is that the characters mature, and develop into stronger women.

Cyndarella, Tavie, Denise and Vette had been best friends since high school, but Cyn was the pivot of the friendship and her friends could talk to her about their deepest secrets. Cyn's life was, however, far from perfect itself. Although now happily engaged to a truly wonderful man, memories of her greatest love still haunted her. Bashar was her first love and she had been deeply in love with him. They had made plans for their future and everything was going according to plan until he left on a business trip to Baghdad and never came back. No final goodbye and no reason; he just vanished and for thirteen years she did not know what had happened to him. Since Bashar, Cyn found it hard to trust any man; all her relationships had been filled with scepticism and were always short lived until she met Thad. Cyn was all ready to get married and start a new chapter with Thad when Vette discovered some horrifying truth about Bashar's disappearance. Suddenly Cyn was stuck between her greatest love and her fiancé.

One Foot Outside The Door by Vina St. Fran is a fascinating contemporary romance story that takes you deep into the lives of four women as they try to find their right footing in the world of relationships. The four were all comfortable in their professional lives, but it was exciting to follow their personal journeys and witness a friendship so pure and fierce. The story portrays the beauty of having friends you know you can count on at any time and turn to with/for anything. I loved the way the other three completely trusted Cyn and knew that they could tell her anything without fear of being judged or ridiculed. One Foot Outside The Door by Vina St. Fran delivered a story filled with romance, suspense and relationship drama through love triangles, betrayals, broken trust, and second chances.
