American novelist G. L. Gooding is the
author of Fresh Snow on Bedford Falls,
the literary sequel to one of the world’s
favorite Christmas films, It’s a Wonderful
Life, starring James Stewart, Donna
Reed, and Lionel Barrymore.
By the time Gooding began writing Fresh
Snow on Bedford Falls, he had watched
Frank Capra’s movie masterpiece more
than seventy times across several
decades. With a deep respect for the
film and a genuine love for its legendary
characters, Gooding endeavored to
maintain the integrity of the finely crafted
layers within the story told on the big
screen. In his research, he discovered
several story threads that begged for
conclusions. In resolving each, the
lessons learned as a successful career
as a human resources consultant
inspired him to delve well below the
surface of the story. Gooding’s historic
mystery novel picks up a few days after
the movie ends and gently explores the
aftermath of a mean-spirited crime, the
psychology behind personal and
professional motivation, and the powerful
conflicts between good and evil.
Met with glowing industry reviews, Fresh
Snow on Bedford Falls, is a loving and
sensitive tribute to the wonderful people

of Bedford Falls and to the larger-than-
life Christmas classic It’s a Wonderful

Life.
G.L. Gooding and wife, Sarah, live in
Santa Rosa, California. Gooding is at
work on his next novel, a mystery.
