“[A] heartwarming fantasy … Christmas enthusiasts will find this hits the spot.” ~Publishers Weekly

A contemporary, holiday fantasy with a new twist on A Christmas Carol and It’s A Wonderful Life.

Abby Nicholson used to love Christmas. Until she didn’t.

After leaving Winter Glen, the small town famous for its Christmas celebration and her family’s greeting card company, Abby is forced to return to the home she left behind when the unexpected passing of her father thrusts the business into her hands.

Turning her back on the magic of the holiday beloved by her father and the town, she decides to sell the business. Signing the paperwork with the very pen her father used to create it, she is shocked to discover her hometown has become a whole new world.

One where Christmas has vanished!

Now stuck in a place devoid of hope, joy, and the spirit of the season, Abby sees family and friends altered in the most terrible of ways.

Determined to set things right, though unsure how, Abby takes out her father’s pen and begins to draw. When she realizes her art is coming to life, she sets out to recreate the holiday and bring back the most wonderful time of the year.

But some are determined to keep an iron grip on the town and will do anything in their power to stop her.

Book Review: We Hear Voices by Evie Green

We Hear Voices
by Evie Green
December 1, 2020
384 pages
Publisher: Berkeley
ASIN: B083RZ1VBH ISBN: 9780593098301
An eerie debut about a little boy who recovers from a mysterious pandemic and inherits an imaginary friend who makes him do violent things...

Kids have imaginary friends. Rachel knows this. So, when her young son, Billy, miraculously recovers from a horrible flu that has proven fatal for many, she thinks nothing of Delfy, his new invisible friend. After all, her family is healthy and that's all that matters.

But soon Delfy is telling Billy what to do, and the boy is acting up and lashing out in ways he never has before. As Delfy's influence is growing stranger and more sinister by the day, and rising tensions threaten to tear Rachel's family apart, she clings to one purpose: to protect her children at any cost—even from themselves.
We Hear Voices is a gripping near-future horror novel that tests the fragility of family and the terrifying gray area between fear and love.


Billy caught the terrible flu that has caused a pandemic in futuristic London and the rest of the world. Then suddenly, one day, he recovers from it. Happy that her son has survived, Rachel doesn’t mind when he admits to a fantasy friend he calls Delfy. But soon, it appears Delfy is telling Billy to do things, harmless at first, but that grows into more sinister things. Like the many, many spiders he 
brings home from school in his lunchbox because Rachel said she wouldn’t mind dead spiders since she doesn’t care for them. Billy says he doesn’t like doing the things, and that is Delfy. Things got much worse from there. 

This science-fiction horror novel reveals the tensions and fragility of family, worried that their landlord may sell their home out from under them. Rachel, her boyfriend, and her teenage daughter get help for Bill from a doctor who is also having problems. He begins to wonder if Billy and the other affected children in his hospital are really going mad or more terrifying that maybe something is really talking to the children.

About the Author:
Evie Green (Evie Green) is the horror author who lives in my head. She has been busy over the past few years. Her debut novel, WE HEAR VOICES, is going to be published by Berkley in the US in October 2020.

It’s the story of a little boy who recovers after a global flu epidemic. His mother, Rachel, is delighted with the imaginary friend who has appeared to help him get better. However, it turns out that the flu was just the beginning...

It has been an enormous amount of fun writing this, and the book went on a strange journey to publication before finding its perfect editor in the form of Jen Monroe at Berkley, in New York. I can't wait to send it out into the world.

Can there be any common ground between the mismatched Myall and Julia? Is there any hope of goodwill within their families? And—perhaps more importantly—will the goose prove itself worth saving from the butcher’s knife?

The Story Behind the Story: Author Liese Sherwood-Fabre: In Search of London’s Sherlock Holmes + giveaway

In Search of London’s Sherlock Holmes
Before we retired just before the pandemic, my husband worked as an international consultant, which required him to travel regularly to Oxford. By then, I was working on The Adventure of the Murdered Midwife and knew where I wanted to go when I joined him in London. I even arranged for a hotel not far from Baker Street to make it early to the Sherlock Holmes Museum. 

In 1990, John Aidiniantz purchased a Georgian townhouse at 239 Baker Street and opened the museum. For the next twelve years, he fought with the Abbey National Building Society at 221 Baker Street over who should receive the mail addressed to Sherlock Holmes (Abbey National had been answering the letters since the 1930s). Finally, Abbey National moved, and the Royal Mail agreed to deliver correspondence there. The staff still keeps it on the mantle, a penknife stuck through to hold it in place.

In most museums, there are “do not touch” signs everywhere. Because the items aren’t precious relics of an actual person, guests are able to handle and take photos with objects that would be off-limits in most museums. That includes posing in the chairs by the fireplace with a deerstalker borrowed for the occasion. It’s a full recreation of the flat, complete with water closet on an upper floor.

An additional 221B model exists in London at the Sherlock Holmes Pub. It holds a display of Holmes memorabilia collected for the Festival of Britain in 1951 and includes one of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s desk and chair. You’re also able to enjoy a pint of Sherlock Holmes Ale or Waston’s Golden Ale.

There are other bits around town: markers where Sherlock and Watson first met, a statue of the great detective, and the Baker Street metro station is decorated with a Sherlock Holmes silhouette. Enough to keep a Sherlockian busy for more than a day.

To read more about Sherlock Holmes’ London address and other aspects of his life, check out Dr. Sherwood-Fabre’s series on “The Life and Times of Sherlock Holmes.” Volume Three has just been released, and the first two are now available in eBook as a box set.

A Demon’s Witch Excerpt:
Suddenly, he felt the magic aura shift and switched his attention to the front door. She breezed in, hair like spun gold flowing to her waist, with a seductive yet regal body and a sway to her hips that should be illegal even in DC. She wore a snug rose and cream colored sweater, cut low enough he could see the swells of her rounded breasts, tailored black slacks that fit her cute ass like a glove and four-inch spike heels. She paused in the center of the salon, wet from the sudden spring storm, and lowered the briefcase she’d used as an umbrella. Her sparkling violet eyes glanced up to the mezzanine where Bruce stood watching. Blatantly her gaze wandered over his well-muscled body, undressing him piece by piece, until he felt naked. He shook his head slightly and smoothed his shirt and slacks with his hand, just to make sure he was still wearing them.

About the Author
Website-Facebook-Twitter
With the majestic Rocky Mountains just outside the window, I sit at my computer with vampires,demons, witches, faeries, and a variety of paranormal creatures gathered around telling me their stories! That makes me an author of paranormal romance novels and cozy mysteries with magic spark. The everyday world is mundane, but sprinkle a little magic and you have fantastic!

Colorado is home. I share my life with a wonderful husband of many moons, our brilliant Chow Chow, a terribly spoiled companion parrot, and a forty-year-old box turtle. We enjoy hiking, biking, and camping, also love water sports including kayaking and whitewater rafting, especially on the Arkansas River through the Royal Gorge.

Another passion of mine is reading a good novel. You can find me any winter evening curled up in front of a crackling fire with a good book, a mug of hot chocolate, and a big bowl of popcorn. While growing up, if I didn’t like the ending of a book, I’d rewrite it, which led to writing my own books.

Reluctantly, I discovered that in real life it’s tough to rewrite an ending.
