Publication Announcement: The Christmas Book

I am pleased to announce that my third book, The Christmas Book is available now, at Smashwords, as a pre-order and will be available for download November 1.

The print edition will be available soon at Amazon, and CreateSpace.

Patrick Winter is a teenage orphan who gets into a fight with his foster brother. As a result, he loses his home in that foster home. He moves to the Malone home where he receives an old book. Soon after getting the book, he starts hearing a voice in his head that tells him that he has to read the book. He is the son of Santa Claus and must learn the magic in the book so that he can return home and begin learning how to become Santa Claus when the time comes. Pat’s troubles have only just begun. His foster brother is still against him. One of the prettiest girls in school suddenly notices him. Why would he want to mess that up? Besides, Santa Claus isn’t real. Or is he?

Check out the first chapter and see what it is all about, The Christmas Book Chapter 1. It’s in PDF format so you can download it and read it. I hope you like it.


I am not one who is comfortable talking about myself but here goes. I enjoy writing, family history, and reading. I decided to do this blog because I wanted to try something new. I decided to make it a weekly blog because I wasn't sure that I could keep up with a daily one, and monthly seemed like I was writing a magazine. I think I did ok with my choices. You'll notice that there are not a lot of graphics on my site. That's because there are graphics plastered everywhere on the Internet and those sites sometimes take forever to load. This blog is a place where you can kick back, relax and be ready to be amused. At least I hope I willbamuse you. This blog is on a variety of subjects from my ficitional cat agency, the FFL, which is monthly, to instructional blogs to editorials, which are my opinions only. I admit that I don't know everything and could be wrong -- I frequently am. Now, stop reading about me and read what I have to say!
