I’m excited to announce my book A Star in the Night, illustrated by K.C. Snider and published by Guardian Angel Publishing, will be featured on Blog Talk Radio’s show Halo Kids. JD Holiday will be there as well to ask a few questions. This is a great opportunity to see if my book is something you might want to purchase.
Thanksgiving has passed and we are entering in the center of the Christmas season. My family and I spent this weekend decorating and welcoming the season. Those who know me well probably have guessed already what the first decoration up was. (Did you say Nativity scene? Ah – you do know me pretty well.) We had Christmas music on from our local radio station, and later while Dad and the kids set up the artificial tree, I made some home made Christmas sugar cookies.
My oldest decorated the cookies with sugar as I rolled out and cut the dough. And so, since my family and I are in the Christmas spirit full force, I want to share some of that with you.
For those of you who are fans of A Star in the Night, my Christmas book about a little boy who discovers the true meaning of Christmas, enjoy this coloring page! Illustrated by K.C. Snider. Color it in and send me a photo- or just color and enjoy. If you do color it and send a photo, I’ll feature it on my blog. Parents: send photos to email@example.com .

Yesterday there was a “Basket Extravaganza” to raise money for my local parish. When my son’s first grade was looking for donated items for their basket, I offered an autographed copy of A Star in the Night and Teresa’s Shadow. The teacher was thrilled and thought it would fit in nicely with their “Cold and Flu” theme. Who couldn’t use a book to cozy up with when they’re sick, right?
It was a fun event and I wished I could have stayed for the whole event, but my first grader wasn’t feeling well. (Anyone else find the irony in that?) So we stopped on by, took some chances for some other great baskets and left. Of course, we didn’t leave before snapping some pictures of the basket with my books.
Let’s see how sharp your eyes are. Can you spot A Star in the Night?
Teresa’s Shadow is lurking in the back of the basket As always, thanks for your continuous support, CTK!
I’ve been making better use of Goodreads lately. Goodreads is a great place for authors and readers alike to share, recommend and discuss books and their love of books. They even have a special Author page for authors who are promoting their books and works. Come check me out on Goodreads. Be sure to add me as a friend and fan my page. Leave a comment with your link and I’ll gladly return the favor.
Some author updates:
- I am consolidating my facebook pages into one author page. If you are a fan of Teresa’s Shadow or A Star in the Night on FB, please head on over to my AUTHOR PAGE and follow me there as well. I look forward to connecting with you all there.
- I am in the process of booking several author events. More info will be provided once the information is official, so stay tuned.
