Christmas is one of my favorite holidays (closely followed by Halloween, but this could be thanks to my love of all things chocolate). I love the icy pine-scented air that reawakens your winter dulled senses the second you step outside. I love the spirit of thankfulness, good tidings, and joy.
But what if we weren't so lucky? What if Christmas only reawakened the wounds of our past? This is exactly the case for my newest character, Lee Llewellyn.
In Christmas Wishes, Lee has lost her son and is forced to face another holiday season with only her memories for comfort. In Lee, I tried to create a character in which every reader with a child, or who has ever dealt with a divorce, could relate. Life can be hard when you must go through it alone, but what can help? For Lee, this was her love of French Silk Pie.
Without spoiling anything, I can tell you that sometimes dreams of French Silk Pie can blossom into unexpected Christmas Wishes.
