Sweet Christmas Kisses Box Set Giveaway

Please share a little about yourself, your genres, any other pen names you use.

The Sweet Christmas Kisses box set is a collection of holiday romances by 14 sweet romance authors. Collectively we are part of Sweet Romance Reads. We all write what we like to call “PG romance”.

Tell us a little about your latest or upcoming release.

My particular story is BY CHRISTMAS. It’s the fourth book in my Covington Falls Chronicles series, inspirational romances set in a fictional Southern town. In this tale, the heroine Noelle Robinson is a jilted bride who decides she’s going to escape all the tea and sympathy and start over in a new city. Then her father has a health crisis, which throws all her plans out the window. Suddenly, she’s in charge of running her parents’ Christmas shop and organizing the town’s holiday festivities. Michael Campbell is the brother of the man who broke Noelle’s heart. Since her non-wedding, she and Michael have become friends. Michael steps in to help her save Christmas. In the process they discover their own holiday happy ending.

Have you ever based your book or characters on actual events or people from your own life?

I don’t know if there is any one character based on a real person. Sometimes they have elements of people I’ve known. Most of my story ideas come from somewhere

Is there a theme or message in your work that you would like readers to connect to?

Since my books are inspirational there are themes about faith. Many of my characters are actually pretty cynical about religious and general so it’s interesting to take them on a spiritual journey as well as a romantic one. I also have reoccurring themes about forgiveness and healing. My characters also have pain in their past and that is keeping them from creating a fulfilling life. It’s only when they learn to deal with that anger and hurt that they are able to get the happy ending.

When you’re not writing what do you do? Do you have any hobbies or guilty pleasures?

I am a singer. I sing in my church choir and worship team. I also play flute in a community orchestra.

Is there a genre(s) that you’d like to write that you haven’t tackled yet?

I have this persistent crazy idea that seems to want to be a paranormal. It’s about a spoiled heiress who dies. Once she gets to heaven she gets recruited to what’s known as the “Soul Mate Council” where it is her job to help earthly couples find their soul mate before it’s too late. It’s very strange but hilariously funny. Someday I might have to write it.

If this book is part of a series…what is the next book? Any details you can share?

This is the fourth book in the Covington Falls Chronicles. The previous installments are MARRY ME, ACTING UP & IMAGINE THAT.

There are quite a few returning characters from previous books in this book. In fact, Noelle made her first appearance in MARRY ME. My heroine in that book was Julia Richardson, a very reluctant wedding planner. Noelle’s non-wedding was one of her many chaotic moments.

What book are you reading now?

I am eagerly anticipating the next Kristan Higgins book. I suppose by the time this posts I will already have devoured it. Kristan is one of my favorite authors. She is a master at writing humor, but also genuine, tear-jerking emotion. She can make you laugh and cry, sometimes on the same page.
