A Note From Carla

Welcome! We’re gearing up for the holidays on our hilltop. We got through a multi-day power outage and blocked road after a foot of heavy, wet snow, but maybe we’ll have a white Christmas. With all the decorating, wrapping presents and baking, it’s a great time to treat ourselves to a holiday novella! I’ve refreshed and updated “Husband for Hire,” a “delightful” story featuring two people who pretend they are husband-and-wife-to-be during Christmas week. 

Have a wonderful holiday season wherever you are!
