When I graduated college, one of my friends said, “Look out for this one; she’s going to be an author one day.” Despite being an avid reader and a natural storyteller, it wasn’t until that very moment that the idea of writing novels occurred to me.

Sometimes our friends can see the things that we can’t.

While I didn’t start straight away, that comment sowed a seed and several years, two children, and hundreds of thousands of words later, I completed a novel that I felt was worthy of publication. The result is Coming Home for Christmas, a heart-warming story about friends, family, and the magic of love at Christmas.

The rest is history.

When I’m not writing, I'm a mother of two boys and a wife to a very supportive husband.

I recently heard a TED talk by a man named Ken Robinson about how our schools should hold creativity (the arts) as high as they do, say, Mathematics. This idea hit home for me and compelled me to write the following. I hope you share the idea with your schools, your friends, and your children.


 


I decided late in life to write. It occurred to me rather randomly as I was reading another novel. It...

Mandy has a wonderful ability of creating characters that are instantly relatable. I fell right in stride with Isla as she maneuvered through her world and her ups and downs with Chase. A truly entertaining read!

“You don’t have to be strong enough to do it all at once—no one is. You just have to be strong enough to do one thing. That’s it. Then you rest, and when you’ve regained that strength back, you tackle the next thing.”
Jenny Hale, Coming Home for Christmas

“That’s how she is. She’d endure anything for family because having us home, she always said, meant more to her than all of the inconveniences. I love her for that.”
Jenny Hale, Coming Home for Christmas

“support one another and spend time together, because at the end, that’s all you’ll have to take with you—the love. Love each other and everything else will fall into place.”
Jenny Hale, All I Want for Christmas
