Friday is the big day…

Hi, friends! As the holiday season begins, I wanted to tell you about two holiday books of mine. One is coming out on Friday, November 20, “My Jingle Bell Heart.” It’s still available for pre-order, and it will go live in  ebook and paperback. The ebook will release at the discounted price of $2.99, which is twenty-five percent off of the full-price of $3.99. The paperback will be available for $9.99.


Jingle Bell

I was an elf, but not a good one. I was too tall. My ears weren’t pointy enough. I couldn’t make toys. Basically, I was a failure.

I grew up with Nic and Holly—a/k/a Santa and Mrs. Claus—which put a considerable amount of pressure on me, especially since I’d been kicked out of every creative department at Santa Claus, Inc., Int’l. In a last ditch effort, I was sent to the Special Case Unit, where I was assigned a family going through a crisis.

I was charged with bringing comfort and cheer to a special little girl who needed all of it she could get. I didn’t expect to meet a wonderful human man who appeared to have the weight of the world on his broad shoulders, and I certainly didn’t expect I’d want to help him carry it. The case was difficult, but I was dedicated. I definitely didn’t anticipate falling in love along the way, though.

Trick McNichol

In my world, there were no silver linings—until Jinson Bell, a nursing assistant, walked into my daughter’s hospital room and gave her something to smile about.

Going into the holiday season with a sick child was as heartbreaking as it sounded. My little girl, Danielle, had been diagnosed with a dangerous disease, and the treatment was doubly as harsh. I was nearly at the end of my rope, but one afternoon, I rounded a corner and met an incredible guy I wasn’t expecting. Jinson was kind, adorable, much younger than me, and he had a sweet tooth like none I’d ever seen. He knew what we needed before we needed it, and it was easy to fall in love with him.

It wasn’t the best timing in the world, but Jin was there when I needed someone to lean on. When he laughed, it was like bells were ringing, and when I found out he was only at the hospital temporarily for training, I had to find a way to make him mine.

This work of fiction is 32,000 words in length, is a standalone novella without a cliffhanger, and ends in an HEA.  


Starting December 1 and continuing all through the month, my holiday book from last year, “The Holiday Gamble,” will be on sale for $.99, so get yourself a copy of a feel-good Christmas romance.  


Eldridge Holiday basked in his reputation as an international playboy, traveling to exotic lands and notching his bedpost without a care in the world, funded by his father’s black card and his trust fund. Life was sublime… until his father had enough.

When JD Holiday insisted Ridge return for Thanksgiving to the family home outside Philadelphia for a come-to-father meeting, Ridge had the feeling his perfect world was about to shatter, and JD didn’t disappoint. Take a job at one of the family toy stores as a photography elf for thirty days. No credit cards. Little cash. A dingy studio apartment. None of the privileges he’d grown so fond of growing up.

Ridge’s older brother didn’t believe the spoiled brat of the family could handle it, so Elliot threw in a sweetener… Ridge would win Elliot’s mint condition Porsche if he pulled it off without any help from the family.

Ridge took the bet, thinking it would be a walk through a winter wonderland. Little did he know, his life would never be the same.


Cristian Gamble worked hard to support his sister after their parents were killed. Cris worked as a mechanic, but from Thanksgiving until Christmas Eve, he was Santa Claus at a toy store in West Philadelphia. Cris enjoyed the break in his routine, the joy on the faces of the kids when they told him their Christmas wishes, and the extra money he made didn’t hurt either.

When his sister was invited to the Winter Formal at her prestigious private school, Cris had a big problem… buying a party dress wasn’t in the budget. From out of nowhere, the guy who played Santa for one month a year met someone he believed could be his biggest Christmas wish ever. Was Cris willing to make a holiday gamble with his heart?

This work of fiction is 61,000 words in length, is a standalone novel without a cliffhanger, and ends with a happily ever after.

I hope you’re all looking after your health–both mental and physical–during these tense times. Let’s all be grateful for those we love and those who love us, even though we can’t be together this season as we’d like to be.

I grew up in the rural Midwest before moving to the East Coast with a dashing young man who swept me off my feet, and we've now settled in the desert of Nevada. I write M/M contemporary romance, subgenres: sweet low angst, age-gap, cowboys, mysteries, and military/mercenary to name a few. I am a firm believer in "Love is Love" regardless of how it presents itself, and I'm a staunch ally of the LGBTQIA+ community. I have a loving, supportive family, and I feel blessed by the universe and thankful every day for all I have been given. I’m old enough to know how to have fun, but too old to care what others think about my definition of a good time. In my heart and soul, I believe I hit the cosmic jackpot. Cheers!
