I am so excited to announce that Wise Wolf Books has acquired my new YA Christmas romance, All I Want for Christmas, coming Fall 2021, as well as 3 additional books in this fun Christmas series! In All I Want For Christmas, high school student Graham Wallace has been in love with the girl next door for a decade. Unfortunately for him, she’s been dating his best friend for the past two years. Out of sheer desperation, Graham makes a wish on a shooting star—all he wants for Christmas is Sarah Clarke. When he wakes up the next morning, everything has changed, and he’s the one who’s been dating Sarah for the past two years, not his best friend. Graham assumes the wish would have only come true if he and Sarah were meant to be together, but as it becomes clear that he and Sarah bring out the worst in each other, not the best, and as he starts to fall for the new girl in town, Graham starts to wonder if some wishes come true in order to show us what’s not meant to be.
All I Want for Christmas centers around the idea that we, as human beings, often don’t know what we want. We think we know what’s best for us, and we get these images in our heads of how great something might be, and, in so doing, we miss the blessings that are actually right in front of us. Graham suffers from this all-too-familiar plight, and Christmas felt like the perfect season for him to discover what truly matters. For a little more on the book, as well as on my writing journey thus far, check out the interview I did with Wise Wolf here.
Oh friends, I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am to share these Christmas stories with you, stories of hope and love and light. It is my deepest prayer that these books will add to the joy and sparkle of the 2021 holiday season for you all.
