Weather the Storm



Rising Storm Episode 7 (Nov. 5): Lisa Mondello’s Weather the Storm




 Welcome to Storm, Texas, where passion runs hot, desire runs deep, and secrets have the power to destroy...

Nestled among rolling hills and painted with vibrant wildflowers, the bucolic town of Storm, Texas, seems like nothing short of perfection.

But there are secrets beneath the facade. Dark secrets.  Powerful secrets. The kind that can destroy lives and tear families apart.  The kind that can cut through a town like a tempest, leaving jealousy and destruction in its wake, along with shattered hopes and broken dreams. All it takes is one little thing to shatter that polish.

Reading like an on-going drama in the tradition of classic day and night-time soap operas like Dallas, Dynasty, and All My Children, Rising Storm is full of scandal, deceit, romance, passion, and secrets.

With 1001 Dark Nights as the “producer,” Julie Kenner and Dee Davis use a television model with each week building on the last to create a storyline that fulfills the promise of a drama-filled soap opera. Joining Kenner and Davis in the “writer’s room” is an incredible group of New York Times bestselling authors such as Lexi Blake, Elisabeth Naughton, Larissa Ione, Rebecca Zanetti and Lisa Mondello who have brought their vision of Storm to life.

A serial soap opera containing eight episodes in season one, the season premiere of Rising Storm, TEMPEST RISING, debuted September 24th with each subsequent episode releasing consecutively this fall.

So get ready.  The storm is coming.

About WEATHER THE STORM: Episode 7 of the Rising Storm Series

Secrets, Sex and Scandals …

Welcome to Storm, Texas, where passion runs hot, desire runs deep, and secrets have the power to destroy…  Get ready.  The storm is coming.

Bryce Daniels faces a crisis of faith when his idyllic view of his family is challenged with his son’s diagnosis of autism. Instead of accepting his wife and her tight-knit family’s comfort, he pushes them away, fears from his past threatening to undo the happiness he’s found in his present.


 The penultimate episode in this highly addictive series and I can barely contain myself, as the inevitable storm is getting closer and promises to be as dangerous and destructive as predicted.

This week the capable writing reins are in the hands of author Lisa Mondello as our attention is shifted towards Storm's pastoral care-giver Pastor Bryce Douglas and his family.

An autism diagnosis is difficult for any parent to comprehend and in Bryce's case, he doesn't want to accept his son has problems that need immediate attention. He's available to the community 24/7 to offer help to his congregation, but that doesn't apply to his wife Tara, daughter Carol and son Danny. Luckily, actions from interfering family members are a wake-up call for Bryce as he

The prize for the biggest foot-in-mouth moment goes to Sebastian Rush, when he accidentally lets slip some personal information to the town's ticking bomb a.k.a Dakota Alvarez...oops!

Again the writing is exemplary and seamless making this another high octane episode. I can't wait for the big explosive finale in Thunder Rolls by Dee Davis.
