  1. I would love to have you read No Christmas for Olivia

    Today through Monday, October 11 – 14, the first book of my second eBook series is free! I know you will love reading about how Olivia learns the true meaning of Christmas.

    If you are thinking of a book for a gift this year – No Christmas for Olivia would be a good one! Download it, read it, share it, but most of all, Enjoy it!

    In the story, Olivia is hurt and angry that her family is going to visit Aunt Fran in Phoenix over Christmas vacation. It means there will be no trip to the tree farm to cut a Christmas tree. Her beloved decorating traditions will go out the window. And absolutely no snow on Christmas Eve! Olivia decides to skip Christmas this year. Her parents can make her go to Arizona but they can’t make her enjoy the holidays! Follow Olivia out to Phoenix as she learns the true meaning of Christmas.
