Author Biography

Trish Beaudet has been an Interior Designer for over twelve years. Having a passion and flair for design, she decided to pursue that passion and opened her own Interior Design business in 2001.
In 2008, Trish was chosen out of over 10,000 applicants to appear on HGTV’S Design Star; a reality based competition where nine interior designers vie for their own show on HGTV. Praised highly for her on camera ability and natural hosting skills, Trish found herself placing third in the highly competitive competition. Being a part of the show not only solidified her passion for design, it also made Trish realize how much she enjoyed the television production process and with her natural on camera abilities, could pursue a career as a host for design television.
Since the show, Trish was asked by a local TV station to develop a concept for a five episode design show. Trish developed the Refined Design series that showcased the renovation process of a 10,000 sq ft home which aired locally in Michigan in 2010. Trish acted as one of the producers, writers, head designer, as well as the host.
Trish has worked on several projects with sheknows.com, appearing on seasons 3-5 of Homestretch. Trish has also utilized her talents as a host for ten sheknows how-to videos.
In August 2013, taking her creative side to another level, Trish became a first time fiction author. Her newly released Suspenseful Erotic Romance, titled Deception By Design is currently available on amazon.com.

Reviewed by Lit Amri for Readers' Favorite

In the suspenseful romance novel Deception by Design, Isabella Hughes is a successful interior designer and owns a firm in Manhattan. A farm girl who hailed from Ohio, her past is left behind as she becomes a successful businesswoman with a great career and a dreamlike marriage. But some good things never last. Her husband, Grayson, becomes unhappy with his inability to match up with her success. Then, there is also a matter of personal issues from her past that never quite disappear from her life. When she receives a grand design project from an important client, Isabella sees it as rewarding but unfamiliar ground. When a new project manager, Julian Groissaint, comes aboard, her life starts to spiral more out of control.

I absolutely love the premise and Trish Beaudet is able to deliver a story that engages readers emotionally in an instant. The catalyst for Isabella and Grayson’s marriage woes is a familiar situation that I believe many readers can relate to. The multi-layered plot is one of the best I have read so far; unpredictable and full with suspense. Not all writers can master characterization that easily, but Beaudet really nailed it with hers. Despite her many flaws, I found myself rooting for Isabella again and again, hoping that she could overcome her personal demons and the obstacles that she has to face. Coupled with the sensuality of the story, it is hard not to fall in love with Deception by Design. As such, romance fans should not miss this.
