Mornings in Tucson are nippy and our fall is finally here. What a beautiful time of year!
Brilliant orange sycamores reach toward the heavens in competition with the bold color of our western, cobalt blue skies. This morning, when the clouds parted over the Catalina Mountains, we even noticed a hint of snow, high on the pine-covered crests. Next week it will be Thanksgiving… there’s always so much to be thankful for, like good friends and the time to enjoy them.
It seems like the year will speed by after that and Christmas will be here. Just in time for this special time of year, my piece of short fiction, a tender, modern Christmas tale, Jody’s Story: A Christmas Legend, has just been published
Christmas miracles keep on happening, it seems… sometimes in the strangest places.
Five days after the attack on Pearl Harbor, Jody must leave the southeast New Mexico ranch he’s called home for the past ten years. With Christmas less than two weeks away, Jody is scarcely evading the call to serve his country. Another duty beckons first. Follow his journey of minor miracles that leads up to the greatest gift of new life and a life saved on Christmas Day.
Warm your heart with this modern tale of a Christmas legend reborn and retold and of gratitude repaid.
This story is available for immediate download and enjoyment with all the main eBook suppliers. For those who love the feel of print on paper in a small book, one that would fit nicely in a Christmas stocking, contact me via email on my web site.
