My latest for Christmas

Thought I’d offer my readers a wee Christmas garland of three short stories this year I wrote over 20 years ago, which came about in part to chronicle some of my mother’s childhood experiences entitled Memories, Mother and a Christmas Addiction. They’re sort of Rockwellian vignettes with what I think is a very Canadian overtone.

The first, Santa and Mr. Buck, captures the excitement of four year old Barbara Brown on Christmas Eve, and her meeting with Santa, only to discover she missed out on the best part of all, holding Santa’s reindeer with her father.

The second, The Year Santa Didn’t Come, is an exploration into the pressures of poverty on a family at Christmas, and the true meaning of sharing.

The third and final story of this small collection, A Christmas Promise, tells the tale of Barbara Brown’s first Christmas without her step-father, who died earlier that year, of how she overcomes the pressures of being a wage-earner at the age of 15, while still keeping a promise she made to her step-father.

Memories, Mother and a Christmas Addiction is now available through Amazon’s Kindle, as well as Smashwords, and hopefully before Christmas from Kobo, Nook, Sony, Apple and Diesel.

Hope you enjoy this wee seasonal read.
