Dealing with the unexpected loss of his mother isn’t how carpenter Steve Billings planned to spend his Christmas. Hoping her costume jewelry can bring some happiness to others, he takes it to the local community theater, where he runs into his first love, Trey Baxter.
Trey’s trying to help his sister put on a gender-fluid version of A Christmas Carol, but no one on the cast or crew knows which end of a hammer to hold let alone use a power tool. Then a face from the past brings a present-day miracle… one that could lead to the happy future they both thought they gave up back in high school.

I am so excited!!!!
Last spring I was challenged by a senior editor at Dreamspinner Press who I’d worked with for many, many years to write for the 2019 Advent Calendar. I don’t focus on romance. It’s always the side course in my writing, but for this it had to be the main event. I had 2 weeks to write 15K. The theme was ‘homemade for the holidays’, and imagine my surprise when I had a plot in 10 minutes!
I pounded out 14000 (ish) words and created Christmas Ghosts, which will be my first officially published work for DSP. Had I more time, I’d have gone for the upper limit and done an entire novella, because I really love the characters I created and the story hit me where I live.
