About Winter Madness, A Short Story Romance

Sienna has survived what most succomb to - the death of a spouse and child and has maintained her faith despite her troubles. William has never met anyone who actually lived out what they say they believe. Is it true love between the faithful optimist and broody pessimist or simply winter madness?

When did you write Winter Madness?

Winter Madness was written and published in 2008 by White Rose Publishing, an imprint of Pelican Book Group.

What was the spark that gave you the story idea?

After a visit to Snoqualmie Falls in North Bend, Washington, I had this dream or vision of a woman standing on the edge where the falls converge into the swirling stream of water contemplating suicide. As one who has suffered from depression periodically, the emotions my heroine Sienna felt were very real to me, but I knew God wouldn’t want that of me, or her. As a writer the question WHY always follows after a thought or vision. The story evolved from there.

Why do readers buy Winter Madness?

All of my stories offer hope and healing through a relationship with God. Winter Madness shows that regardless of how hopeless you feel or horrific the circumstances, God has “plans for a hope and a future and an expected end” (Jeremiah 29:11) for your life.

  7. Sounded so good, I had to buy it! I love seasonal books! I don't know if it is the former teacher in me, but I love holidays and the uniqueness of the seasons. This sounds like a great way to celebrate winter. I also like knowing how the story started, as I will keep that in mind as I read. Thank you for providing what I know will be a great story!

  9. Winter Madness sounds like a relevant and timely topic, even though written some years ago. Depression runs in my family, so I am always interested in reading about it. Good luck!
