Over the years I’ve written a bunch of blogs dedicated to my favorite holiday season. This year will be no different as I always manage to uncover more fun facts, history, recipes, and carols to highlight. In the days ahead leading up to Christmas Day more entertaining and educational blogs will post. Be sure to come back!
This is also the perfect time to shine the spotlight on my Christmas novella. Based on The Darcy Saga, of course, A Darcy Christmas was published in 2010 as part of an anthology with Amanda Grange and Carolyn Eberhart. Then, in 2012, the three individual novellas were released as ebooks. Full information, including excerpts and reviews, are on the novel page HERE.

In between new blogs to be posted throughout the month, check out my past Christmas-themed articles for additional joys of Christmas. All of them are linked in the Pemberley Library, but here are some of my favorite posts from years past.
