About this author

DEE DeTARSIO is a TV writer living in southern California.

unnamed“I was named after a Christmas cookie.”

Ginger Krinkles is crossing her fingers that this holiday season will be extra special, for once. She lost her job in San Diego and dreads moving back home to Ennui, Ohio, where she’s convinced she will end up like her mean ol’ grandmother (God rest her soul).
