Christmas is approaching fast, but all is not right with the little world of Sunnyvale. Snow is nowhere to be seen, Dads are not where they are supposed to be, and Christmas collection money is missing. Can two (almost) 11-year-old girls save the town’s festivities and be granted their Christmas wishes?
Where/when is your book set?
I set my book in a fictional town Sunnyvale, in North-East England; it’s modern (Christmas 2018)
Who is your main character?
The main character is Julia Cox, age 10 and 9 months, who befriends another almost 11-year-old girl – T (short for Tiffany). Julia is the daughter of Katie, who is the main character and the amateur sleuth in my series, Paper Crafts Club Mysteries.
Why is Christmas so important to the story or you?
Christmas is important to the story, because it’s important to the main character. Julia, who is almost 11, loves Christmas – she loves making and putting up festive decorations and cards, she loves Christmas food, she can’t wait to see snow again, but most of all – being with those who she loves. Her parents are divorced, and she lives most of the time with her mum. This year, she spends part of the holidays with her dad and his side of the family; she is really looking forward to this because she missed them.
