For most of my adult life, I have written. But it has been short essays and perspective pieces. I never tried fiction (primarily because a jr. high teacher told me what was wrong with a short story without telling me how to fix it). This year, I decided to move out of my comfort zone. I used my morning writing time to write a Christmas short story called The Ruined Christmas.

It is the story of a man’s learning what Christmas is and is not about.

It will never sell (and I don’t expect it to), but it was fun to write and stretch a little.

If you would like to read it, you can download it below or ready by clicking. If you would like it EPUB format for E-readers, send me an email and I will get it to you.
