Christmas is a joyful time for most families, especially when you have young kids who adore the very notion of Santa, and Rudolph, and all that the holidays entail. I know I’m on a winner when I sing Christmas songs, and my twins don’t cover their ears and plead, “STOP, YOUR VOICE HURTS MY BRAIN.” which is what they say when I normally sing. They love Christmas songs, but don’t know all the words yet, so as long as I can think of new songs, I have a captive audience.

With the kids being so merry, and their Santa countdown beginning back in, oh, May, it was only natural I write a Christmas story.

My novella will be available December 12th, and I hope you enjoy reading it, as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Here is the blurb:

Christmas is the season the Gingerbread Café was made for…but owner Lily couldn’t be feeling less merry if she tried. She’s spent another year dreaming of being whisked away on a sleigh-ride for two, but she’s facing festive season alone – again. And, just to give her another reason to feel anything other than candy-cane perky, a new shop across the road has opened… Not only is it selling baked goods, but the owner, with his seriously charming smile, has every girl in town swooning.

But Lily isn’t about to let her business crumble — the Gingerbread Café is the heart of the community, and she’s going to fight for it! This could be the Christmas that maybe, just maybe, all her dreams – even the someone-to-decorate-the-Christmas-tree-with ones – really do come true!
