Footprints in the Snow

A Short Story

by Staci Troilo

Cover: Footprints in the Snow
Part of the Cathedral Lake series:

Christmas used to be Ben Lyndon’s favorite holiday. It represented everything he held dear—friends, family, love. Now, thanks to one mistake, it’s all gone. And not only from the holidays, but from his whole life.

A surprise visit from a former lover brings hope of rekindling some of the enjoyment, some of the passion. But will Ben’s desire to recapture what he had prevent him from being able to find fulfillment in what he has in front of him? (30 pages)

About the Author

Staci Troilo grew up in Western Pennsylvania writing stories and poetry in her free time, so it was no surprise that she studied writing in college. After receiving creative and professional writing degrees from Carnegie Mellon University, she went on to get her Master’s Degree in Professional Writing, and she worked in corporate communications until she had her children. When they had grown, she went on to become a writing professor, and now she is a freelance writer and editor living in Arkansas with her husband, son, daughter, and two dogs.

Staci is a multi-genre author and an Amazon bestseller. Her fiction combines dark, dangerous heroes and strong, capable heroines woven together into a contemporary tapestry of tantalizing romance. Compelling villains and gripping mysteries engage the reader from page one of her novels and her short stories feature ordinary characters conquering the odds in extraordinary situations.

When she isn’t reading or writing, she’s probably playing with her dogs, relaxing poolside, or working in the kitchen. She loves to cook and bake and is an award-winning recipe developer.
