Occasionally a book is just plain fun to write. That’s rare, as any writer will tell you. Ordinarily writing is hard work. Or as Hemingway said, “All you do is sit at the typewriter and bleed.” (As an aside, I used to write at a typewriter. Thank goodness for computers!)
But Christmas with Tiffany was a fun book to write. First of all, I enjoy writing Christmas stories. There’s something inherently romantic to me about a season where people are deeply involved in carrying on the traditions that go back to their childhoods or are in the process of creating their own new traditions.
Christmas with Tiffany is a “second-chance-at-love” story. As you might expect, Tiffany and the man she once loved have been estranged for a number of years. But then he moves back to the state, not far from the town where he and Tiffany met and where she now owns a small gift shop that she’s busily preparing for her annual Christmas open house.
Neither is in the mood for a happy reunion. Their breakup wasn’t exactly cordial. But when Tiffany’s tiny shop is inundated with ten times the number of Christmas ornaments that she’d ordered, affairs seem to take on a mind of their own.
Christmas with Tiffany is a short novella and as such is priced at only ninety-nine cents on Amazon. If you’d like a quick and uplifting read during the hectic Christmas season (or beyond), I invite you to check it out.
