–By the Book 

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It is not often that a simple children’s book can nearly bring me to tears, but this one succeeded.

–My Devotional Thoughts 

A Christmas Kindness is a short chapter book that teaches compassion, humility, love, and so much more. I read it by myself before reading it to my five-year-old, and I’m so glad I did because I had to take a break to get a tissue box.

–IE Mommy

This sweet, heartwarming story was a delight to read. It is the perfect book to read by the fire with your kids during the holidays.

–Mayra’s Secret Bookcase

This adorable story, as well as the beautiful illustrations by Caroline Mabey, will warm the heart of the stingiest of Scrooges. It’s sure to become a Christmas favorite for your family, as it has for mine.

–Lynn’s Corner 

This book has a great story and a very timely message.

–Maureen’s Musings

This was a very lovely chapter book teaches children and reminds adults the true meaning for Christmas. It captures the heart and spirit of what this season is all about in a very moving and delightful way.

–Our Families Adventure

A Christmas Kindness is a sweet and touching story that looks at the needs of others rather than ourselves, and it is a message that will touch the lives of your children and/or grandchildren. A powerful message of kindness is found within these 15 pages.

–Blooming with Books

A Christmas Kindness is a welcome introduction to giving and caring for others during the Christmas Season…This would be a great book to add to your Christmas book selections and if you do Advent in your family it might be a great introduction to a family service project.

Excerpt:
Inside the mall, Christmas music and the tinkling of jingle bells tickled Robert’s ears. With his mother, Robert weaved through the crowd of shoppers. He smelled fried food from Burger Mart. The sweet scent of warm chocolate chip cookies from the bakery made his mouth water.

  1. Are you a morning writer or a night writer? Usually night, but I can write in the morning if I have to.
  2. Do you outline or are you a pantster? It depends. For books under 20,000 words I am a pantster. Anything larger than that, I sketch some type of outline.
  3. Which comes first – plot or character? Character comes first. I find plotting hard; but if I have a character in mind, I can see him or her in certain situations.
  4. Noise or quiet when working on your manuscript? Quiet. I don’t even want to hear the ticking of a clock or the cats walking by my office.
  5. Favorite TV show? Classic show: Little House on the Prairie. Current show: Cedar Cove.
  6. Favorite type of music? Hip-hop.
  7. Favorite craft besides writing? Cooking and gardening.
  8. Do you play a musical instrument? Tried to learn the piano once. Having the left and right hands doing different things was hard enough. As soon as I tried to add in the feet, I was lost.
  9. Single or married? Married to a great guy who doesn’t give me too much guff when the kitchen floor is dirty almost to the point of being sticky because I have a writing or editing deadline.
  10. Children or no? One son and two girls. They are my source of inspiration.
  11. Pets? Three cats we adore.
  12. Favorite place to write? My office.
  13. Favorite restaurant? The Thai Room, Miller’s on the Waterfront, or Big Al’s on the Outer Banks in North Carolina.

  15. What was the name of the last movie you saw? The Hunger Games.
  16. Favorite outdoor activity? Gardening.
  17. Pet peeve? People who don’t follow the rules. I won’t even go out an “In” door.
  18. Your goal in life? To enjoy every moment.
  19. Your most exciting moment? The birth of my kids; though our wedding day is a close second.
  20. The love of your life? God.
