Love lost in the afterlife in 'A Symphony of Cicadas'

Read Crissi Langwell a few times and you'll feel like you're really getting to know her.

Crissi, my colleague at The Press Democrat, has been tugging on heartstrings for a few years now with her personal tales of raising children and teenagers – first as a single mother and now as a mom in a blended family. Her stories have appeared in the print version of the newspaper and online at such sites as winecountrymom.com.

Crissi also wrote a pivotal chapter in last spring's "Sonoma Squares Murder Mystery," a fictional serial created by 16 Press Democrat and local writers. You can see her chapter <a href="http://digitalestories.blogs.pressdemocrat.com/17839/sonoma-squaresred-harvest-8-showdown/" target="_blank">here</a>.

Recently she's published her first novel, <a href="http://www.amazon.com/A-Symphony-Cicadas-Forever-After-ebook/dp/B00BV6GYSE" target="_blank">"A Symphony of Cicadas."</a>

"This book is based off a bad dream I had that was so vivid I knew I had to write it down," Crissi writes. The nightmare came while she was preparing for her own wedding.
