We all need a second chance sometime.
Winter Cowan, co-leader of the ministry Passion’s Prayer, has devoted her life to Christian service. Then one night during a conference in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, standing before her in a prayer line, humble and asking forgiveness is Ty Williams. Her ex. Only this man who broke her heart ten years ago is now gut-wrenchingly sincere in his apology, prays for her like a long-lost friend, tenderly reaches into the forgotten places of her heart, and he has a request. One unbelievable request that could change everything…

How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
As a writer in the Christian fiction (inspirational) genre, I want to encourage people to forgive, to live for Jesus, to shine a light wherever they are in life.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Don’t give up! If writing is in your heart, keep at it. I went through a time of discouragement and felt like I wasn’t a writer, after all. Eventually, I gave myself a kick in the pants and moved forward. For those, like me, who have been discouraged in the traditional publishing world, indie publishing opens up so many opportunities and dreams fulfilled. You can do it!!

She and hubby, Jason, have been married for 37 years, raised four children, and live in the country near Blanchard, Idaho. A romantic at heart, Mary believes we all need a 2nd chance sometime.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
After going through some rocky patches in marriage, yet sticking together, I wanted to write a fictional story exploring a couple’s journey to reconciliation. Forgiveness is such a deep thing. Sometimes, it’s years later when something bubbles up and you feel that old hurt inside. I wanted to walk in Winter’s shoes as she works through forgiving Ty and opening her heart to the idea of giving him a second chance.
