What started as a hobby—a deviation from my daily work schedule, an imaginative escape into a fantasy world that I could shape and produce as I saw fit—turned into so much more.

Born in Tel-Aviv, Israel, Michelle Dim-St. Pierre spent two years in the Israel Defense Forces, with her second year being served in the medical corps helping injured soldiers and their families. Speaking with these soldiers and their loved ones, learning about their lives and each of their unique stories, Michelle became wholly invested in healthcare and medicine, leading to a thirty-two year career in nursing.

Now privy to what went on behind the scenes in these healthcare facilities, Michelle began to turn to writing as a creative outlet for all she witnessed. Eventually, it was these stories that provided Michelle with the inspiration to create her debut novel, Pinnacle Lust.

“What started as a hobby—a deviation from my daily work schedule, an imaginative escape into a fantasy world that I could shape and produce as I saw fit—turned into so much more,” shared Michelle.

Set in a Tel-Aviv hospital during Operation Desert Storm, Pinnacle Lust tells the story of Sharon Lapidot, a beautiful young nurse who begins a long, passionate affair with an older, married doctor. Initially bright and full of hope, the affair begins to takes a turn for the worse. As Sharon’s life begins to spiral further and further out of her control, she must make the biggest decision of her life or face the consequences.

Vividly told, Pinnacle Lust takes readers on a journey. Fighting between love and lust, honor and betrayal, loss and redemption, the story is a force that will move you—and perhaps even change you.

Pinnacle Lust is the first book to be released in the Pinnacle trilogy. It has been featured in Hadassah Magazine and was recognized by the Los Angeles Book Festival. It also won the 2015 Beach Book Contest for Best Romance.

Pinnacle Lust is available in print and eBook through Amazon, B&N, iBooks, Kobo, BookLogix and michelledimstpierre.com.
