The Gift of Christmas Past Release Giveaway

Hello, Readers,

I am so excited to share with you that my Southern Romance Christmas novella, The Gift of Christmas Past, is now available in stores and online!

This story is very special to me and was so much fun to research and write. Last winter and spring, Erin and I went to Asheville, North Carolina twice. We visited all the locations used in the story, including the historic downtown courthouse and Biltmore estate. Among the helpful events that unfolded to help us with the story, we had a few great conversations with lawyers involved with the juvenile court system.


We tasted delectable chocolate at the French Broad Chocolate Lounge. While at the nature center, my granddaughter, Lucy climbed the same rope structure that a little girl her age in the story also does. We wrote on the downtown “Before I die” wall, also something our characters do. One day it even SNOWED. (Which is pretty special for these Southern girls.)


Thank you, readers, for your support over the years, and I hope you’ll enjoy visiting Asheville with us through The Gift of Christmas Past.

Helpful Tips for First-Time Commenters:

The third field in the comment form asks, “Got a website?” Please feel welcome to leave that field blank. (If WordPress would let me, I would remove that question!)

If you don’t see your comment appear right away, it probably went to “moderation,” which is a holding place where WordPress keeps some of the comments until I approve them. Be assured, I will approve it as soon as I can.
