Marie never expected to wake up in North Pole City, let alone become Santa’s Emergency Replacement. It was a job she never wanted but
couldn’t turn down, thanks to Clarence, Santa’s right hand man. 
Now, Marie has to work with Clarence, who believes she is some kind of criminal who will cause the destruction of everything he holds dear. 

Trying to prove that he’s wrong, Marie keeps making mistakes that push them even further apart. It doesn’t help that she has a past she’d rather keep hidden. However, trying to keep her past where it should belong isn’t easy. 

Just when Marie starts to feel like things are coming together, a madman with a bone to pick, and Christmas to ruin, threatens the whole of the North Pole Organization. Marie must rely on Clarence and her new friends to help her face her past before Christmas is gone forever. But does she have the courage to truly be herself when it could mean losing everything?

Top Ten List: 
  1. I love Stephen’s Hot Cocoa. If you haven’t tried it, you’re missing out.
  2. While I’m not very active in it most of the time, I love to sew.
  3. I have a collection of random pens, markers, highlighters, and pencils on my writing desk.
  4. I love the feel of fleece, the softer the better.
  5. My favorite candy bar is Hershey’s Mint Chocolate Cookie (not always easy to find)
  6. I wish I’d been born with redder hair than I was.
  7. I try to base all of my characters from people I’ve met in real life, either by name or personality traits.
  8. I would love to eventually open up my publishing company to more than just my books, for those unconventionally conventional books regular publishers might not take simply because they don’t think they’re “main stream” enough.
  9. I would rather it be too cold than too hot weather-wise. You can always layer up. It’s harder to layer down.
  10. My favorite holiday is…. Christmas!
