Author Takes New Spin on WWII Heroine in Romantic Novel, Colette
San Rafael, CA – Michelina Vinter’s debut novel, Colette, is an infectiously uplifting escape embodied by a heroine who takes no prisoners and rescues the men in her life. Filled with intrigue and torn loyalties, the author takes us on a whirlwind tour through the times that changed our world forever.
Encountering everything from disillusioned first love to the Gestapo and even a kidnapping plot, Colette’s life proves to be as exciting as it is dramatic. Keeping readers guessing until the last sentence, this captivating novel uses romance, action, and intrigue to draw readers in while showing them something more.
Colette explores the constraints of life and family, bridging the cultural divide and social stigma of interracial marriage in California during the 1940’s. The author honors the struggle these couples face not only from society but also within their own families. Mirrored in her own life and her loving marriage of 15 years, Michelina Vinter is intimately wise in sharing that true love has no boundaries.
A truly singular story to experience, Colette shines a spotlight on all the remarkable women who took “Do your part” to heart during the war. Colette
travels around the world and back again in defense of her family, her child, and her love. But will it be enough?
Praise for Colette:

About the author:
Michelina Vinter is a practicing acupuncturist and herbalist residing in the San Francisco Bay area with her two children, her husband, and a sweet shadow, her son’s Havanese. Possessing a vivid imagination since she was a child, she often was told to get to the point - which led to her career as an acupuncturist. Born in France, she left her family and moved to the United States when she was twelve years old. With firsthand experiences in hard goodbyes and long conversations with her maternal grandmother who was born in 1920, Vinter’s wisdom beyond her years led to a fulfilling writing career covering multiple genres.
