A Star Bright Christmas
A young family can’t be late with their mortgage payment again. So two days before Christmas, at the onset of a blizzard, he goes to town leaving his wife and two young sons alone to endure a blackout on the 24th of December. Will he make it back? In time for Christmas?
When a young newlywed soldier recently returned from Iraq tells his young wife he has to work Christmas Day she goes ballistic. He had promised her they would never have to spend another holiday alone. When she wakes one morning she finds his things removed from the apartment as well as all the furniture and fixtures not the ones they had picked out together. She cries herself to sleep on the ‘new’ couch and wakes up to discover the true meaning of spending the holiday together.
A widower and a younger woman get to know each other better but not until after he accepts the concept that ‘life goes by in a flash and you don’t want to miss anything’.
A young family travels from the northeastern United States to the hot sweltering south for a better way of life. Sunny days, sandy beaches, and summer heat. Their dreams are squashed when neither can find jobs and their surplus of money from the sale of their house is down to their least pennies. Until Christmas Eve!

About the Author
I live on the west coast of mid Florida with my husband, two cats and AJ, my long haired chihuahua. I've been writing since I was in fourth grade when I wrote a play that was actually produced by the teacher for the students and parents. I've written four full length novels and too many to mention 'short stories'.

Four good short stories to put you in the Christmas spirit. Some of the endings seemed a bit abrupt but overall, the stories were enjoyable. Several editing issues throughout including typos, missed words, etc. Something good to read on a lazy afternoon.
Each story had a good message but did not have much substance. A very quick read to make you think about the season.
The story lines were good but there is alot of mistakes. Also, it does not seem to be written the best...I feel bad writing this but it is true.....
Four warm and cheerful holiday stories.
