Noelle: A Christmas Story

If you’re looking for a fun, sweet read to put you in the Christmas mood, I think you should grab a mug of cocoa and snuggle into my new novelette, Noelle:  A Christmas Story. Noelle cover16x11

Noelle is a dancer at a ballet company in New York. She has a tidy life that is right on track- she’s up for promotion and the biggest role of her life. But as she prepares for the annual production of A Christmas Carol, her mother suddenly crashes the party. 

Barb is bohemian, bossy- and has just had surgery that means she can’t live alone for a few weeks. 

Will their tiny apartment be able to hold two strong personalities? 

Escape into the world of plies, tutus, and the giant tree at Rockefeller Center- come dance with Noelle: A Christmas Story

I had so much fun writing this book about one of my favorite subjects- ballet! I’m such a sucker for the beauty of an arched tendu and the line of a perfect arabesque. I loved the idea of spending awhile in the world of a ballet theater this Christmas.

But more important to me was this idea of the realities of love- working out what love looks like when personalities clash. Noelle and Barb play out the story of so many of us- good intentions and bad communications. I hope that this Christmas, you not only smile at the beauty of the ballet, but you’re encouraged in your hardest relationships.





Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor.

Romans 12:9-10
