Behind the Book

Seitz' brother-in-law's neighborhood flood was front page news.

Seitz’ brother-in-law’s neighborhood flood was front page news.

October 2015 brought a super blood moon, extreme high tides, record amounts of rain, and a thousand year flood to much of South Carolina. Author Nicole Seitz’ home was spared in Mount Pleasant, but her brother-in-law, just 40 minutes away in Summerville, was not as fortunate. The creek overflowed and entered his home, filling it with two feet of water. Nearly everything was lost, and the family of four was displaced. They moved in with parents while the damage could be assessed and the home rebuilt. The widespread flood damage became personal to Seitz, and she wanted a way to help. She called on author friends—novelists, poets, journalists—and they responded in record time. One month later, When You Pass Through Waters was created. The anthology is inspiring and thought-provoking as the 18 beloved and bestselling authors share their water-related memories, fears, and wisdom. The cover artwork was done by Nicole Seitz, who is also an artist, illustrator, and art teacher.
