This is a magical and happy time of year for most people, and a time when lots of “wishes” dominate our thoughts and hopes. For children they are excited weeks in advance, and I remember when I was a kid, Christmas Eve had to be the longest night of the year! It went on forever… As an adult I marvel at how patient my parents were while having their sleep interrupted on what must have been an hourly basis! It’s my firm belief that this holiday more than any other, touches the child that remains inside us all.
My sister and I tend to look back on our memories of childhood more as the holiday gets closer, too. We laugh a lot about the number of times we got caught sneaking out to the Christmas tree to see what Santa brought, and when those presents appeared it was magic! Like a lot of kids we left out cookies and milk for Santa, and they were always gone, the glass sitting in the sink with the plate still holding a few crumbs. As adults we take those things with an amused smile, but there’s also that wonderful sense of delight we remember from those special childhood days.
As you celebrate this special season, it is my hope for you all that your wishes be heard and fulfilled. Enjoy the peace and happiness that is the heart of Christmas, and may you and those you love be Blessed, today and always.

About the Author:Canadian born and bred, and a lifelong dreamer, I began writing at an early age and can’t recall a time when I wasn’t creating in some artistic form. My life has had several on-going love affairs that shape much of what I write, the American West, Victorian England, cowboys, a passion for pirates, Greek Gods, and Ancient Egypt. The other endless love affair in my life is Italia and all its magic, beauty, and dazzling culture. That passion spills into all aspects of my life.
In the past half dozen years, I’ve signed with over a dozen publishers, and have released books in all lengths and genres, and it’s something I hope to continue to do for many more years. A visit to my website will show the diversity of what is currently available, and the mixing of genres and styles that will be employed in many up-coming projects as well. (All my social site links, etc., are on the About Me page.)
