Tell us a little about yourself. I live with my husband and sons in a historical town nestled along the Catoctin Mountains in central Maryland, amid Civil War battlefields and Revolutionary War outposts. In many of my stories, I write about the struggles endured by early colonists. My first book in the historical series for Abingdon Press, Daughters of the Potomac, was nominated for an Inspy Award. At present I am currently writing in the Edwardian era, and writing novellas for Barbour Publishing.
What was your motivation behind this project? A hundred years ago or more, Christmas was very different than it is today. There were no commercials urging people to buy this and that. There was no such thing as Black Fridays or frenzied masses that would step over each other just for a deal on a toaster. Christmas was a special time of the year for families and friends centered around the birth of Jesus Christ. So when asked if I would be one of nine authors in The Victorian Brides Christmas Collection from Barbour Publishing, I was thrilled with the opportunity to write a story set in 1900. My novella, The Holly and the Ivy, will introduce you to Lily Morningstar who's dream is when she marries, she will have a snowy Christmas wedding, and her hero Dr. Andrew Stapleton who steals Lily's heart, not only because he is English and handsome, but because he has corresponded with her for a year, and involves himself in uncovering who owned and who wrote the Civil War love letters she found.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? A respite from the harried modern Christmas Season.
