Growing up, Christmas was always a special time of year. For one thing, we had no school, and then, there were the presents, and extra special food. I have three brothers and sisters, so we always had fun sharing and playing with the Christmas toys we got: bicycles, games, puzzles, books, art sets, and model kits [yes, these were the days before video games and electronics].
So, it’s no wonder that I’m drawn to writing Christmas romances, both sweet and spicy. What better time to fall in love than when everyone’s in the holiday mood? People are traveling, some going back to their hometowns, and others going on vacation. Parties, family gatherings, and charity work all give ample time and opportunity to meeting someone new.
My first Christmas story, A Father for Christmas, is a story about a little girl who asks Santa for a father for Christmas. She doesn’t just sit back and wait for Jolly Old St. Nick to bring her a father, but immediately sets off to find him under the mall’s giant Christmas tree. The man she finds turns out to be a homeless veteran. This story must have touched many hearts because it is not only one of my bestselling books, but it won the 2015 Readers’ Favorite Gold Award.

Her sister, Brainy Brittney, finds her own Santa love in Santa’s Pet when she sits on the lap of a very hard Santa.
