Celebrating the Season

What is your favorite holiday to celebrate? Is it Christmas, when everything around us is sparkling lights, mistletoe, and evergreen? Or is it New Year, where you get to toast to new beginnings? What about Memorial Day, where everyone is ready for the sun and sand of the summer?

Personally, I’m a Memorial Day and 4th of July kind of girl. Celebrating freedom and spending time remembering those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for that freedom. Plus, I’m totally a summer sun person!

Several years ago, I wrote a book called, Tangled in Tinsel. It was a sweet little Christmas romance, and one of my readers told me that she loved the little town of Celebration that it was set in. She said it would be so awesome to have a series there.

I thought that was a great idea too, and thanks to her, Tangled in Tinsel became the first of a thirteen books series!!

Celebration Township is made for family, friends, falling in love, and don’t forget celebrating the holidays. The first twelve books bring two people onto center stage as they overcome odds and figure out what their futures may hold. There is laughter, love, romance, and even suspense when you join these couples as they each find a happily ever after over a holiday. The thirteenth book brings all twelve couples, and even a few special guests, into final focus as the first couple in Tangled in Tinsel prepares for their wedding one year after they met.

A Christmas of Memories

T’is the Season to be jolly. Not really. Not this season, as we wonder collectively: “What will happen this year?” Christmas 2020 will be different for many people. For us, it will mean no family gathering. As I set my few Christmas decorations, I can’t help smiling at the incredible work and fun previous Christmas family reunions meant.

I used to cook for days and set a lovely table. The place would turn into a happy mess a few minutes after my young guests arrived, and the kids would insist on cleaning.

My Christmas decorations are cheering the place and reminding me that true happiness come from the heart. A two-foot tree is standing on a side table and decorated with a string of tiny lights, colored bulbs, and tiny Santas. I remove it and store it in its box every year. A Santa Claus that a friend of my mother gave me for my daughter’s birth, and a Nativity in Lenox, a Christmas gift from my mother many years ago, complete my decorations.

I count my blessings every day. The vaccines are coming and we have something to celebrate.

Over the past two months I published more books than in the past two years and contributed novels to several Authors’ Billboard anthologies.

So yes, it’s the Season to be Jolly.
