Chicago, IL -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/06/2013 -- While millions of authors can engross thousands in their narratives, few boast intricate and relatable characters that resonate deeply with readers. Bucking this trend is Chicago’s Shelley Mac; an author who knows what it takes to create characters that enter both the minds and hearts of every reader.
‘Walking In My Season’ boasts vivacity and depth that compels everyone to find a piece of themselves among the heart-stopping adventure.

Walking In My Season is a testament to the strength of wanting. The characters possess a common familiarity that connects with the reader. Following their emotional journey as they conquer the manipulators in their lives and take back their freedom is an undeniable pleasure.
As the author explains, her debut novel takes its cue from her own background and personality.
“I’m a native Chicagoan and know exactly how the ‘big city’ affects everyone’s life. My book takes this unpredictable atmosphere and delivers a story that is crammed full of heart, courage and hope,” says Mac.
Continuing, “It will pull at your heart strings and keep readers excited in the anticipation of what will happen next. I am very giving and this novel shows that.”
Since its release, the book has garnered a consistent string of rave reviews.
“This book is a real adventure! There is love, passion, joy, intrigue, revenge and even hope. The story is fantastic and the characters are rich, vibrant and alive. Read it and you'll find a piece of yourself in every character! You don't just read it, you live it. This is a real page turner!” says one reader, who reviewed the book on Amazon.
Another reader, Miriam, was equally as impressed. She adds, “The story itself is truly revitalizing, the author's ability to take the reader by the hand and just lead them one step at a time through the story is absolutely incredible. I've never had any author do that to me before. Usually, you're so wrapped up in the plot and characters and who did what, you speed through the book and finish it before you can catch your breath. Not with this book.”
