DR. MEL'S MESSAGE - From my novels to my other projects, no telling what you will read. This is the only place you will get to read about how I developed a screenplay into a novel and what is the driving force. I will talk about many things from films to books to acting to producing. It really will depend on where my mind takes me. I hope you will join me on this journey.
In the small town of Salcha, Alaska, Alyssa O’Donnell is haunted by her past. Gone are the days of laughter and adventure—and no more racing with her prized team of sled dogs. After falling through the ice with her team, she barely escapes with her life—only to watch her beloved team drown. Shut in and shut down she runs on autopilot working at her general store.
Her friends pester her with memories of the woman she used to be. But, that's not the woman she is anymore. Alyssa must choose between her past in Alaska or creating a new life for herself in Oxnard. Will she continue to spiral, or will she discover a new path?
