Judy Banger has a secret. She’s no fan of Christmas. She’s suffered through fifty-four of them and, too late, she discovers she’s married to Wiley “Santa Claus” Canby. In four short months of marriage, Judy and Wiley have crossed off more items on their bucket list than most people do in four years. But, now it’s December, and Wiley wants to throw a big, blow-out holiday party to show off his new wife. Unfortunately, Judy’s never hosted a gala party in her life–especially not one that includes a cross-section of friends and family that would make Modern Family look like the Waltons.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
When I finished writing Judy Banger’s full-length women’s fiction novel, ARE WE THERE YET?, I thought I was done with Judy’s story. But, out of the blue, she returned to tell me about her first Christmas as a newlywed. I remember my first Christmas as a newlywed and how hard I tried to meld my traditions with my husband’s–and make a few new ones of our own. We’re still working on that…some 30 years later. We’re working that…some 30 years later. Do you try too hard, give too much, run down your batteries while trying to make everybody happy? Read what happens to Judy and maybe you’ll do things differently this year.
