Local author Linda Heavner Gerald is on a roll.

After only a year and a half of writing, Gerald is preparing to release her fifth published book, “Till Heaven Then Forever,” in March.

The new novel explores themes of paradise, pain and discovers what the phrase “life is too short” really means.

“Till Heaven Then Forever” features a couple who lives in the Bahamas believes they have it all, but after a void begins to form they set out on a new adventure, end up traveling through Gulf County and ultimately end up in a very familiar location: Cape San Blas.

Gerald said that she enjoyed writing about places that she knew very well and even featured additional landmarks like the Port Inn and Joe Mama’s restaurant.

Even though the book falls into the romance category, Gerald said that the material is clean and includes the religious overtones that readers may expect from her.

“I always try to include God in my books,” said Gerald. “He’s given me a gift that I love.”
