Merry New Year!

Hi everyone!

I've rewritten some of the lyrics to the Chipmunks' Christmas song to reflect how I bet you're all feeling right now...

Christmas, Christmas time was here.
We had joy and we had cheer.
Now that joy is in the past.
Christmas came and went too fast.

Got a plane that looped the loop,
but not a frickin' hula-hoop.
Why'd you go and spoil the fun?
Why, Christmas, are you done?

Want keep Christmas around a little longer? Come visit me anytime in the land where Christmas lives, the North Pole, simply by picking up my critically-acclaimed debut book, North Pole High: A Rebel Without a Claus! It's sure to keep Jack Frost nipping at your nose year-round! :D

Thank you to all my lovely fans and the fantastic reviewers for all the wonderful love and support you gave my book. You are truly appreciated.

North Pole High: A Rebel Without a Claus tells the story of sixteen-year-old Candycane Claus, the most popular girl in school, whose world is turned upside down when Rudy Tutti is assigned to work with her on a school Christmas-tree project. The new boy is hot chocolate, but he hates everything to do with Christmas. As Candy and Rudy grow closer, Santa's opposition to his daughter's blossoming romance puts Christmas in jeopardy. Now it's up to the two North-Star-cross'd teens to save the day and restore joy to the world!
