Snow, Fire, and Ice by Randi del Marco
Review by Linda L. Fallen Angel Reviews --- Awarded 5 Angels!!

After Maxie’s mother goes through yet another divorce, fifteen-year-old, Maxie is sent to Montreal to visit her aunt. She feels lost, abandoned and like she doesn’t fit in with her slim cousins, who even know the ins and outs of skiing. While out skiing, there is an avalanche. She wakes to find a handsome man taking care of her. Philippe is studying to be a doctor, but what breaks Maxie’s heart, is the fact another girl is there, Renee’, his girlfriend. They believe Maxie suffered hypothermia. Maxie so wishes Philippe didn’t have a girlfriend. Her aunt comes to get her, and Maxie must sadly say bye to Philippe. Years later, after 9/11, the scene with the avalanche creeps into her mind, and Maxie sees a therapist. Thoughts of Philippe stir in her head. She can’t forget how he came to her rescue. Maxie is surprised when, years later, she runs into Philippe, in Las Vegas, during a convention. He has not forgotten Maxie. Three years later, Maxie is on her way to help some of the children with their skiing when Philippe enters her life once more. They had kept in touch with a few emails but there he stood, handsome as ever. He has come quite a way since he first began his education as a doctor, and has learned more about the extensive research being done on spinal work. He was in the U.S. now alone since Renee’ broke his heart. He wants to forget the past and get on with the future. He and Maxie never forgot that one special day they met. They both had gone through a transformation but was it enough to keep them together always?

Snow, Fire and Ice is a well-written story. Maxie’s life starts off similar to many young teenagers who are trying to find something in life to make them happy. I wanted to reach through the pages when she spoke of how people had made fun of her name or because she was slightly different in her weight then other girls. She finds love at a young age, and never forgets that one special love through the years. Randi del Marco sketches a believable story that is heartwarming, moving, and an absolute joy to read. Maxie is a character that stays with readers even after the story is finished. I love it when two people, who were truly meant to be, finally find a way in reaching out and discovering that one special love all over again. This coming of age tale is a fantastic read.

Erica Leigh Madson - June 2007
Interview with Anya at Enchanting Reviews

What made you decide to become an Author?

As an inveterate bookworm since before I went to school, I was always captivated by the magic of storytelling. How a story could sweep me away to faraway places and allow me experiences I would never have in the world of my childhood. I always imagined myself as a writer but never acted on that dream till now.
How long have you been writing?
That's a hard one. I constantly argued with the teachers from grade school on about what constituted "good" writing. Most of my jobs (the rent-paying kind) have involved a certain amount of writing - whether tailoring plays to a specific audience when I worked in theatre or drafting agreements in the film business. After a couple of scripts that didn't go anywhere, I left the creative stuff to others until a couple of years ago when I explored various formats to tell stories. I found I had a talent for communicating the sensuality of relationships and that the novella length seemed to work best for both me and the story. However, some of my novellas involve the same characters and I may draw some of these together for a full length books in the future.
What was your First book?
Electric Vibes.
Which so far is your favorite Character or Characters to wrote about?
Sophie. I love her intelligence and her sense of wonder.
