New Book and a Festive Giveaway!

I am so happy the holidays are here and that I have a new book,  A Christmas Miracle for Daisy releasing today!


I love Thanksgiving—the turkey and feast, the gathering of family, the big football game followed by an evening movie.  But I also love it because it kicks off my favorite four weeks of the year.   I’ve always loved the way sturdy brown, beige and orange gives way to the sparkle and shimmer of Christmas.

Most of you know I have a weakness for Christmas.  I start Christmas shopping after Labor Day and love thinking about what would make the perfect gift for each member of my family.   My kids and husband say I am terrible at receiving gifts—it’s true, I don’t know why—but I do love to give them.


Last June I flew to Seattle next to a stout older man with white hair and a beard and I thought that if Mac was with me, he wouldn’t be able to take his eyes off the man, convinced we were sitting next to Santa Claus.  The old man looked like the real thing, and by the time the plane arrived in Seattle, I had a brand new story…but it wasn’t the one I’d planned on writing for Cormac Sheenan!

I was so conflicted. I didn’t want to listen to the idea, but once the premise took hold, it wouldn’t let me go. I thought about it all summer and then when I sat down to write, Kris Krinkles kept popping up, and taking over. It’s definitely a miracle story, though, as well as a riff on the very popular film, Miracle on 34th Street.

I wrestled writing A Christmas Miracle for Daisy. It was a fierce battle, but I was committed, and determined that Daisy, Cormac, and Whitney have the happy ending they deserved. A Christmas Miracle for Daisy releases today and I hope you’ll love Kris Krinkles, my kindly old Santa, as much as I do. He’s truly a delight and made me giggle as he put tough, non-believing Cormac Sheenan in his place, while regaling four-year-old Daisy with his most inventive stories.


A Christmas Miracle for Daisy has been released at $2.99 to give all my loyal readers a chance to scoop it up before it switches to $3.99 on November 30th.  If you’re following my complicated, tough Sheenan brothers, you won’t want to miss Cormac’s story!
