Secret Santa has a new cover!

I know, I know - Fall is just beginning.  But holiday books are already showing up in stores, as they seem to show up earlier and earlier every year. 

This year, just in time for the holidays, Secret Santa will be available in print.  It's already available through Createspace and will trickle down to other retailers like Barnes & Noble and Amazon soon.  I'm really happy with the design for this one, and I hope you all love it too!

Secret Santa is my first young reader novel, and blends the Santa Claus story with European myths of faerie, in a magical adventure tale.


Holly Hamilton hates Christmas.

Since her parents died last year, she's been watching out for her brother in an orphanage, where they pick pockets for the unforgiving Mr. Grott, who's some sort of supervillain-in-training.  The looming holiday brings back painful memories for Holly, and her brother getting his hopes up for presents he will never receive serves to make her feel angrier than ever.

That all changes one day when circumstances (and a sleigh pulled by a gaggle of ornery reindeer) whisk the orphans to The North Pole, where they meet creatures they'd only read about in fairytales.  Thus begins Holly's adventures in Tinseltown, where she learns the logistics behind Christmas, and uncovers the secret origins of the elves, and even Santa himself.
