Christmas Short Story

Hi everyone,

Inspired by a contest in the Arizona Republic, I tried my hand at writing a Christmas short story. Problem is, the word limit for the contest is 750 and the story I ended up with is just too long. I mean it's only about three and half printed pages, but it's not going to qualify for the contest.

So it's on my blog instead and I would love for you to have a look.

That was a very short story, but I loved it. My Ted and Jerry were in it! (well, technically, they are your characters, but I fell in love with them in your book, Boomerang).

I could see you fleshing it out into a longer Christmas story.

Nice job

Geoff and dreams,

Thanks so much, I am really glad you like it.

And dreams, please know that Ted and Jerry regard it as the highest possible compliment that you think of them as "yours". And I think it's pretty great too.

Alan
