About the Story

I had wanted to work on a writing project with some author friends. I invited Kaye Kelly, Thresa Snyder, and Iona Morrison to collaborate with me on a short story.

The only 'unstated rule' was to keep it in 3rd person. I wanted each author to choose their favorite character(s) to take a role in our little story.

My pitch to them was that I'll get it started and send it out in a group email and if they had something to follow they would type it in there, then post it back in the group email. We would continue in this way until we reached an end.

This project was a total free write session as we had no laid out plans. We didn't know where we were going to take this little story. All we knew is that we wanted to do this to offer it free to our devoted followers and friends as a way of saying thank you.

The result of our collaboration is nothing short of spectacular. We invite you to join empty nester's Tom and Erica at their winter cabin in the Colorado Rockies with a host of friends and neighbors. You'll laugh, you'll smile, and you'll want to read it again and again. Set back with a cup of your favorite drink. Expect the unexpected in this delightful story of friendship written in the holiday spirit.
