La Belle Mariposa (

Christmas at Alpine Village is a novella based loosely on experiences I had while I was running my family's motel/resort business in a small mountain community in Northern California.  Although the characters who inhabit the roles of the two lovers are fictional, the story of how I tried year after year to win the Chamber of Commerce's Business Christmas Decorating Contest is very real.

A Christmas Anthology is a collection of four Christmas Romance novellas.  Each story is unique from the others. 

In it you will find my story, Christmas at Alpine Village.
