Bramble House Christmas Movie Night!

This Sunday is a big deal for me.

My good friend CJ Carmichael’s novel, A Bramble House Christmas, will be a Hallmark movie on Sunday night and I am so very proud of her, and thrilled that this story has found a home on the Hallmark movie channel!

CJ has been one of my closest friends for over 20 years (we met before we were ever published!) and CJ was one of the founding authors of Tule, along with Megan Crane and Lilian Darcy. It was at CJ’s cottage at Flathead Lake that we planned our Montana Born stories, and mapped out charming little Marietta where CJ’s Bramble House can be found.

This summer I was able to was able to visit the film set in Vancouver with CJ and it was a really special moment to be there with her and watch her story come to life. I’m sharing some of the pictures from this summer on the film set to celebrate, and I’m also celebrating with a $25 Visa gift card and tons of holiday books and sweets and treats.

  4. I know you and CJ had a grand old time visiting the set and filming. Hallmark movies are some of my favorites. I use to watch them with my mom all the time before she passed away. I Loved the book so I know I will love the movie. All the best to you and your family. Enjoy your Thanksgiving this year. 🙂
