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 was 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.

Not Your Mama's Coffee

I don’t know about you, but I’ve cooked more in the last four months than I probably have in my life. In an effort to create normalcy during the quarantine, I’ve been very busy in the kitchen, making cakes, cupcakes, and dishes I’d have never imagined I’d ever cook or bake so that we could have memorable celebrations like birthdays and date nights. With things still unsettled in our wor

“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
