A Grateful Holiday : Sexy Harlequin Holiday Romance PRINT Giveaway

With the Holidays fast approaching, Harlequin authors Maureen Child, Lynne Graham and Christine Rimmer share what they are grateful for this holiday season:

Maureen Child: As always, I’m grateful for my family, and the good health we all enjoy. I’m grateful for my husband and the beautiful place we live. I’m grateful for my readers who allow me to tell stories for a living.

Lynne Graham: This year, I’m grateful for my family – as I am each year! I’m so lucky to have such a warm, close-knit family who take my writing as seriously as I do, and I never take it for granted. And, of course, there has to be a special Christmas shout-out to my husband, Michael – my real-life romantic hero, and the only person I have ever wanted to kiss under the mistletoe!

Christine Rimmer: As I’m sure is true of most writers, I learned to read at an early age. And oh, how I loved it! Books to me were—and are—the very best place to go to experience all that life has to offer. In a book, I get all the thrills and chills and challenges of fighting monsters, living through the French Revolution, surviving World War II, falling in love for all time…anything. Everything. All of life’s variety and wonder were and are right there, between the pages of my favorite books. And I can go there instantly from the comfort of my coziest chair.

I have a younger sister. Early on I drew her into my love of the written word. Starting when I was five and she was two, I would read to her. With lots of vocal and facial expression. I expected a great deal of her, as my audience. And she always rose to the occasion, sitting there rapt as I swept us both away to worlds we would never know in real life. I was a taxing big sister. Now and then I would stop out of nowhere and demand of her, “What did I just read?” Inevitably, she would repeat my last sentence back to me verbatim, brown eyes wide with wonder at the thrill of the tale.

When I was seven and she four, we started reading A Christmas Carol every year. Ten pages a day starting the first of December. Our grandmother had given me a lovely copy of the Dickens treat, illustrated so beautifully by an artist called Maraja.

Oh, how we looked forward, my sister and I, to our yearly adventures with Scrooge and Marley and the three wise spirits of Christmas Past, Present and Yet-to-Come. We would cry together in joy, every year, when Tiny Tim crowed “God bless us, Every One!”

Later, as I grew to adulthood, a book was always the best, most exciting and uplifting place to go to get away from all my everyday troubles. That’s still true, to this day.

And now I not only love to read a good Christmas story, I write one every year for Harlequin Special Edition. I’m so grateful for the Christmas memories of reading to my sister. To this day, those memories inspire me as a writer to strive to write the kind of stories that keep readers turning pages and believing that no matter how tough things get, everything will work out right in the end.
