Who is your main character?
Charley Cooper is a senior in high school and writes for the school newspaper. She comes from a long line of witches but her magic didn’t arrive until much later than expected so she’s still learning to control her sometimes wonky powers. She has a close-knit family, great friends, and a best friend who is now her boyfriend. She can’t seem to pass up getting involved in local mysteries. Oh! And she can talk to animals.
Why is Christmas so important to the story or you?
As a Christian, Christmas is an important event for our family as we celebrate the birth of Jesus. Some of my best memories are of Christmases with my family. In A Witchy Christmas the holiday infuses excitement into the small-town festival and it’s citizens. And allows some heart-warming times between Charley’s quirky family and friends. Of course, when the local Santa goes missing, it causes major chaos in the town’s plans and their efforts to create a magical holiday for the children.
