My story "Christmas Tree Hunter" will appear in the anthology Christmas Through a Child’s Eyes published by Cup of Comfort and Adam's Media. It will be in all major bookstores by the end of September as a trade paperback. The cost will be ten dollars.

After reading Weddings--I had a story in this book, too--he contacted the editor and asked to review the next collection. He was so blown away by the material he insisted on supporting it in any way he could. Also, Good Housekeeping will run an article of the book in their holiday issue this year. All good stuff for the writers.

What I love about this story is that it captures my father's essence and one of the few happy scenes from my childhood. This story actually took place in Germany in what I call the good years.
