Today my family and I went into town (yes, yes indeed, this is a drive into town for us) To experience the Victorian Christmas they do every year.
We have cider, coffee, roasted chestnuts and carolers. And the North Pole is set up with Father Christmas there to see the children! There’s also a horse drawn covered wagon.
This sort of feeling is what drew me to writing the Silver Creek series. I love the glamour and fantasy you find in Harlequin Presents, but I find something so comforting about a small town. There’s a feeling of home in a small town. Character and a sense of friendliness.
And nosiness of course. I never go anywhere without knowing someone, and that has nothing to do with people recognizing me for books!
But you know, small towns have their charm. Most especially at Christmas! And I wanted to share my town’s charm with you.
