HOLIDAY TRADITION: Debbie’s Christmas stories are just as much a part of the holiday season as putting up the tree, lighting the fire, decking the halls and gathering with friends and loved ones. Her holiday novels have been called as comforting as “hot chocolate on Christmas morning” (Kirkus) and “as closely linked to Christmas reading as that of Charles Dickens” (The Romance Dish). And Debbie’s fans can be counted on to keep that tradition alive.
