Synopsis Logo
I’m dead.

I’m cold and alone and I’m dead. There’s no air in my lungs. My chest is as cold and hollow as a cave on a snow-capped mountain side. My heart no longer beats there. Frigid winds whistle through my ribs and the sadness inside me weeps like my favorite tree.

Days ago, I met with death face to face. The mirror, our meeting place. My two darkened green eyes stared deeply into hers. I tilted my head to the side. She did too.

“It’s time,” I whispered.

“It’s time,” she whispered.

And with that I turned away from her, the woman in the mirror who knew all of my secrets and all of my pain. I walked away from her and yet we’d never been closer than we were in that moment. The inner struggle was over. No more arguing with the woman in the mirror. No more arguing with myself. The choice was made. She was the victor. Or was I?

That was the day Riah Winter died.

Q1: What inspired you to write Riah's Story?
The stigma that surrounds mental illness and suicide inspired this book. I wanted to crack the reality of these things wide open. It needs to be talked about. People like Riah need better resources to deal with depression and other mental health issues.
Q2: How do you think your readers will react to this story, what do you hope they will take away from going through this journey with Riah?
I think readers will find a part of themselves within the story. I think it will be an emotional journey through the pages of this book for any reader. I didn’t hold back at all. It’s raw and it’s real. I hope the reader takes away a new perspective on life.
Q3: Are there any similarities that readers will notice or should expect between the themes/vibe of this story and Therapy?
The main theme that both books focus on is mental illness and the truth of what it is for people who live like Riah or Jessica.
Q4: Do you believe that writing stories of this nature, ones that have such intense emotional struggle, can sometimes take a toll on an Author or does this type of writing become somewhat therapeutic?
I prefer to write something that is deeply emotional. I want to make readers feel. I want them to walk away from my stories and feel changed in a way. Writing emotional stories are always therapeutic for me.
Q5: What style of writing should the readers expect? i.e. Will the story have multiple POVs, will the reader experience both the past and present as it happens or will the past be told through Riah's recollection?
You do get more than one POV. As far as the rest I won’t say. I prefer the reader to experience it without knowing anything else. This story is constructed in a very different way than anything else I have written before. It also has many metaphors and you will find a lot of lyrical writing throughout the book.
Q6: Will LWIW just be a standalone or do you feel there may be characters in this novel that you could expand on in another story similar to how you are doing for Kingsley? (just a general yes or no and why is fine, I am not asking you to give up the goods with any specific names ;) )
It’s a standalone.
Q7: Did you learn/gain anything from writing Riah's journey and bringing it to life?
I think my writing grew a lot with this book. It was a challenge to get this story out the way I had it in my mind and I am proud of the end result.
