Never mind a pony. The Tucker girls have inherited their father’s horse farm for Christmas. Make that . . . a run-down horse farm. It needs some serious TLC in order to make it sell-ready. Joanna knows that by recruiting her sisters and one handsome ranch hand they can fix up the place and even celebrate one last Christmas while they’re at it. However, to Isabella, returning to their home in Kentucky bluegrass country for Christmas seems like an impossible hurdle. Can her Chicago boyfriend make life merry and bright again?
One thing’s for sure—nothing is peace on earth for Sophia as a new beau brings up old wounds. And when the fate of the horse farm is put in jeopardy because Amy accidentally fraternizes with the enemy, tensions rise. But it’s not like the land developer stole Christmas . . . just her heart.
Can the Tucker sisters have themselves a merry little Christmas?

How long have you been writing?
I sold my first book in 1993, so almost twenty-four years now. Of course, I wrote short stories in grammar school and sold them on the playground. (Milk money!)
What cultural value do you see in writing/reading/storytelling/etc.?
With inspirational and spiritual writing, I find I can share my faith and my core values in a way that is universal. We all want to be loved. It’s that simple. My stories show God’s love and they also show forgiveness and redemption. I don’t preach but I work hard to bring two lonely or hurt souls together. My characters teach me things every day and I hope my stories help others to find their way on their faith journey. I love hearing from readers who have learned forgiveness through my stories.
What literary character is most like you?
Cinderella! (Not literary but definitely a great character.) I identify with her because I grew up in a large family and sometimes I felt shoved aside and forgotten but I’ve always been optimistic and hopeful and determined. And I love shoes!
What are some day jobs that you have held? If any of them impacted your writing, share an example.
Oh, my. I grew up on a farm so some of my early jobs included cropping tobacco, hoeing and picking peanuts and driving tractors. My daddy paid me so I could earn money for my school clothes and supplies. I went on to retail which taught me how to deal with people, and marketing which showed me how to reach people, and I’ve also worked for a Mother’s Day Out Program (just to have spending money while I was writing.) Dealing with four-year-olds all day taught me how to handle just about any situation!
What do you want your tombstone to say?
“Okay, I’m done now!”
What’s something fun or funny that most people don’t know about you?
I once was carried across Times Square on a gurney during a bomb scare and the EMT taking care of me looked like Danny Glover. And I told him that. (I slipped and hit my head in the hotel room, but he really did look like Danny Glover.)
