How many days until Christmas?

A Family Affair: Christmas, a novella

Book 5 in my popular Truth in Lies Series will be released on November 18th.

Here’s the opening…

For weeks, people talked about the storm that would hit Magdalena right before Christmas. They said it was going to be the worst in history, even worse than the one in ’75 when the roof on St. Gertrude’s church collapsed and Father Reisanski had to hold Mass at the high school until the snow stopped and the roof could be repaired.

Pop had lived through the storm of ’75 and he’d live through this storm, too. Mother Nature had a way of making a person sit up and rethink his position on just what he could and could not change, like a person’s attitude or destiny. There was another storm rolling in and it would be here a heck of a lot sooner. Pop squinted at his watch. Yup, the storm should be here in less than two hours, filled with gusts of hot air and enough highfalutin attitude to fill a compost bin.

That storm was Pop’s son, Tony.

That’s it for now…see you in Magdalena very soon, and don’t forget your winter coat!

Hi Darlene – I’m so sorry I didn’t respond to your post months ago. Somehow, I missed it – please accept my apologies. Thank you very much for taking the time to write and let me know you are enjoying my books. Today is the first installment from Gloria Blacksworth’s notebook…and as you know, she is not a nice woman! (You can find the installments right here, on my website. There will be one a week for the next eight weeks.) Take care and once again, thank you. Mary
