Once upon a time, magic left the world for a night. It sighed back in through the scullery door in the morning with the cat, but by then, the Queen of the Northern Elves had fallen into a deep sleep, and, greatly diminished, the returned magic could not wake her.
From the author who brought you The Purrfect Christmas and A Gingersnap Cat Christmas comes an enchanting collection of three original yuletide fairy tales, written in the tradition of Jane Yolen and Ursula Vernon.
A little Christmas present from me to you. If you like reindeer, Santa Claus, elves, and mythic origin stories, you’re probably gonna dig this.

Gingersnap Cat is an orange tabby feeling blue. Heaven’s paradise, but it’s just not home without his human family by his side. Not even Christmas with his feline friends can cheer him up.
But when Heaven needs an extra paw, Gingersnap answers the call. Sent back to Earth, Gingersnap must help a little kitten fulfill a big destiny!
Announcing my latest Christmas novel (and first paperback release!), A Gingersnap Cat Christmas.
If you’re like me, you love Christmas specials like Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Disney’s Prep and Landing, and A Garfield Christmas Special. But while all of these shows are great at talking about Christmas spirit, it’s hard to find a kid-friendly story (with exception of A Charlie Brown Christmas) that even mentions Jesus Christ, the actual reason for the season. And it’s doubly hard to find a Christian Christmas story that’s not too…well…preachy.
That’s why I wrote A GINGERSNAP CAT CHRISTMAS–to meld all the festive fun of a classic Christmas special without leaving the Savior out of his own celebration.
(I also wanted to write a story where the cats are the heroes, instead of selfish jerks.)
Anyway, if you ever wondered what Highway to Heaven would’ve been like with feline stars, you’ll love A Gingersnap Cat Christmas.
At 200 pages long, it’s a great novel for voracious young readers, but with 25 chapters, families can read a chapter a night in December for a new Christmas tradition.
Thanks for reading, everyone! I hope this book can help you whittle down your Christmas list early. 😉
For me, Christmas is kind of a second way to celebrate Easter. Dunno, just the way my brain works!
Anyway, I hope you’re enjoying good times with family or friends, and that you get the miracles you need this coming year!

I think I’m *finally* coming up on the last scene that needs to be written for this Christmas story. But between typing it, having someone proofread it, my birthday, making a cover for it, etc. I don’t think it’ll be done before Christmas. Womp womp.
Now the question is…do I release it in January, or hang on to it ’til next Nov? XD
Just hit 30,000 words in A Gingersnap Cat Christmas. A few more scenes and it’ll be done! Time to start thinking about the cover! Middle-top might be the lucky winner, but we’ll see…
Whoo! My latest story, A Gingersnap Cat Christmas, just hit 10,000 words! Since I want it finished by Thanksgiving, I’ve been trying to write on it even on days when I’m Not Feeling It™. So far, it’s working! Even on my argleblargle days I’m managing between 700-1400 words an hour. Stay tuned to see if I manage this audacious goal!
