Guest Blog CHRISTMAS TREE LIGHTS
For Christmas our family had a six foot live tree decorated with multiple strands of twinkling lights and then covered with a white, fluffy snow flocking. I always thought the tree had been plucked out of a snowy field.
Each light flashed on and off at its own rate, independent of each other. The lights created splotches of white, yellow, red, green, and blue on the pale blue living room walls throwing the tree’s needles into dark silhouettes. The colors would be here and there and in combinations all over the walls and ceiling as the lights illuminated and went off. The patterns never repeated with the ever changing lights. I would spend hours laying on the floor near the tree or just under the edge of the bottom branches watching the changing patterns. To this day I have rarely found anything as relaxing.

Tagline: She tries to deny her magic, but fate has other plans.
Sick and tired of magical men and mayhem, Alex a city witch, pledges to give magic a rest. Her vow is put to the test when she finds herself snowbound with a hunky mortal. She attempts life without magic even when faced with a demonic hen, a cow that acts like a dog, and a dog that acts human. But when all magic breaks loose and a unicorn shows up, it's the last straw. How will she keep her magic a secret?
Steve, a reclusive prospector, lives alone in a remote Colorado valley because he doesn't trust himself around humans, especially those of the female persuasion. Once he meets the feisty Alex, breaking self-imposed rules is just the beginning. But how can he keep her safe from what lives inside him?
Their connection grows, but the secrets they hide keep them from confessing their feelings. Will they be able to accept and control who and what they are in time to give their love a chance?
This was unbelievable. “My boss isn’t going to understand. This is just like my dog ate my homework. I’m stuck in the snow—for a month or more.” Her mind raced through the possible ways of traveling. “What about a snowmobile?”
“Unfortunately, the road you came in on is the only way in or out. I wouldn’t be surprised to find out that an avalanche blocked the valley pass last night. If so, it’ll take a while before anyone can get through.” He watched her. “Why did you drive out this way? Why didn’t you stop at the hotel next to the highway?”
“If you had just driven under the highway overpass, you’d have been there. Why didn’t you follow the detour sign?”
“Oh great. That’s—just—great! The stupid detour sign blows away so now I’m stuck in the middle of nothing. I could have been tucked away in a nice comfortable hotel—with electricity and phones. But no—I’m stuck in no-man’s land. I risked life and limb trudging through the snow for what?” She sighed. “Now what?”
