By now, you guys know I love to host other authors on my site. Today I’m super-excited because I get to host one of my favorite writers. She’s also a dear friend. Please welcome Mae Clair back to the blog!
Staci, thanks for inviting me to hang out on your blog today. I’m uber-festive right now with Christmas almost upon us. Every December I turn into a sap. I love the merriment, festivities, and spirit of goodwill that pervades this month. Given my love for Christmas, I couldn’t resist spinning a yarn around the holiday.
Those who know me also know there are two things (other than writing) I’m passionate about—folklore and cats. When it came time to dream up a Christmas story, I had to weave both elements into the tale. The result is Food for Poe, a short Christmas novella that is also a story of sweet romance twined with the paranormal and wee smidgen of horror (just a smidgen, I promise!).
When a blizzard strands Quinn Easterly at a handsome stranger’s house on Christmas Eve, she doesn’t realize her newly adopted cat, Poe, is the catalyst responsible for bringing them together.
Breck Lansing gave up on relationships after his wife, unable to cope with their daughter’s illness, left him. But the pretty blonde he rescues from a snowstorm has him rethinking his stance—especially when Quinn’s arrival coincides with a dramatic change in Sophie’s health.
Unfortunately, that change also attracts something only whispered about in folklore. Together, Quinn and Breck must defeat a sinister creature intent on claiming the ultimate payment.
Warning: A clever black cat, Christmas magic, and paranormal trouble.
