Things have settled down for thirteen-year-old Jamie Reynolds since last Christmas. That’s when he time-traveled to 1932 and wound up in the town of Canterbury, Vermont. There he met Kelly and Christopher Pennysworth, who quickly became his best friends. Back in his own time again, he misses them every day. But, as the July 4th, 2008 holiday approaches, the biggest black cloud still hovering over Jamie’s life is the mystery of what happened to his dad, who has been missing for almost a year.

ABOUT THE CHRISTMAS VILLAGE

The Christmas Village reflects many of my cherished childhood memories of growing up in the beautiful New England town of Andover, Massachusetts. It holds remembrances of snow-covered ground, the smell of pine and wood smoke filling the air and candlelit Christmas Eves. But it's more than just a story set at holiday time - it's an adventure that will transport you to another place and time and take you on a roller coaster ride of excitement and suspense.

As a reader, I love stories with twists and surprises, and as a writer, I promise there are more than a few in my book! And as a reader, I also enjoy a story with underlying themes that reflect life itself, and so in The Christmas Village, issues of disappointment, loss and forgiveness are subtly interwoven.

As you are transported into a magical adventure along with our young hero, Jamie, I hope that my book's positive themes around friendship and family, blanketed in an adventure that is exciting and fun, and topped off with a dollop of nostalgia, will bring you and all the children in your life, young and old, a renewed sense of holiday joy.

THE CHRISTMAS VILLAGE is the winner of the 2013 BLOGGER BOOK FAIR READER'S CHOICE AWARD for children's action/adventure.
