Just in time for Christmas, I had an article published in an anthology of stories and recipes edited by Donna Goodrich: Celebrating Christmas with... Memories, Poetry, and Good Food. “The Abandoned Christmas Tree” is the story of our family’s first Christmas tree. I found it abandoned at the Salvation Army the first year I was married. It was covered with twisted tinsel and not very attractive. But with our beloved ornaments it grew more beautiful every year and became a part of our Christmas tradition. Finally, after 18 years we returned it to the Salvation Army so another family could find it and keep picking tinsel off it for several more years.
I also contributed a recipe for gingerbread men, also a tradition at our house. Check out the book at Amazon.com:
