When most people think of the holidays, they think of family dinners, decorating the tree, and singing carols by the fire. When authors think of the holidays, we think of stories. Readers seem to love holiday-set books, and we authors love to write them. There’s happily-ever-after and then there’s happily-ever-after on Christmas, which makes the warm fuzzy feeling that much more special.
Shana Galen and Miranda Neville, two of the authors of the newly released holiday anthology, Christmas in Duke Street, sat down to chat about writing during holiday mayhem, our inspiration, and why we love holiday romances.
Miranda: Are you one of those obnoxious early shoppers who has all her gifts wrapped, tagged, and probably color coded by Halloween, or a last-minute-omg run to the mall on Christmas Eve?
Shana: I do love color coding, but I don’t like to buy gifts too early. I usually start shopping right before Thanksgiving and try and finish a week or so before Christmas. What about you, Miranda?
