My first book, The History of Christmas, is available on Amazon, Target, and Barnes & Noble. 

This book, aimed at 8-14 year olds but suitable for all ages, tells the history of Christmas from Jesus' birth in Bethlehem through 2000 years of history to the present day. Each chapter contains a fictionalized account of Christmas during a specific time in history along with all the supporting non-fiction information to best communicate how Christmas grew and changed as time went along. Also included are recipes, activities, and a timeline. 

Check out my interview about the book:
