I always enjoy meeting ‘new-to-me’ authors and then introducing them to you - the wonderful
visitors friends who stop by. So it’s my pleasure to welcome author Trisha Wilson here today.
Trisha’s latest release is AN UNFORGETTABLE CHRISTMAS, a contemporary (clean) romance. She is also the author of DARING TO TRUST, a contemporary (clean) romantic/suspense that is the first book in the ‘Indigo Girls’ series of four she is currently working on. BTW, don’t you just love the photo of her Chihuahua, Snickers?
With Christmas less than a week away, Trisha joins us today to talk about ‘The Most Wonderful Time of the Year.’
It’s Christmas-time again…it seems to get here faster each passing year. So, are you the one who goes around singing Christmas songs or are you the type who says “Bah-humbug” to every person you meet?
For me, I’m a little of both. I love Christmas – everything about it. However, when radio stations begin playing Christmas music around Halloween, and stores go all-out decorating before December ever gets here, it becomes a bit tedious. I don’t become infused with the Christmas spirit till at least the first weekend in December.
It takes me about a week (sometimes more) to even recover from Thanksgiving; I kid you not! Christmas may be the most wonderful time of the year, but it is also the busiest and most stressful time, as well! With all of the shopping, decorating, shopping, baking, shopping, gift-wrapping, shopping, cleaning, shopping, parties, and even more shopping, it’s a wonder anyone ever has a chance to sit down and just breathe.
This love of anything and everything involving romance and Christmas may be the reason my first book is what it is. Christmas of 2004 found me going through some rather difficult situations and I was spending the day alone. Long story short, I escaped into my imagination to …well mostly to avoid reality, but this is where I came up with Chelsea and Nick.
When the story first begins, Chelsea is just walking through life, more on autopilot instead of actually “living” it. She had lost her family the year before and Christmas reminded her of everything she no longer had. Nick has had his share of loss, too, but he doesn’t let it get him down. He has a newborn to care for, after all.
I hope y’all have a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year!!
May God bless!
May God bless!
Trisha, thanks so much for guest blogging today. I enjoy Christmas but also hate it when the stores put up Christmas decorations along side ones for Halloween. It does seem anything is possible at Christmas sometimes.
AN UNFORGETTABLE CHRISTMAS can be found on Amazon.
Trisha was born in Livingston, Tennessee, and raised in Overton County, Tennessee, with 2 older sisters. She graduated in 1997 at Livingston Academy, and went straight to work following graduation. A few years later, she decided to continue her education and went to TTCL and obtained her Accounting Assistant diploma in December of 2009.
Trisha's writing consisted of poems until 2005 when she decided to try writing a book. The book, AN UNFORGETTABLE CHRISTMAS, came out of that endeavor. She put it aside unaware of how to go about getting it published or bothering with finding an agent. In August of 2011, a friend shared the link about publishing to Kindle, so she decided to try it. Since publishing that one, she's written DARING TO TRUST, which is the first book of a series, "Indigo Girls," based in Tennessee.
Always wanting to write, Trisha kept putting that dream on the back-burner for "another day". That day finally arrived when she decided it was time to go for it. The genre she writes is mostly romance, with a little suspense thrown in at times.
Trisha said, "I love to read, and my favorite author is Karen Kingsbury. She inspires me every time I pick up one of her books. I have so many ideas about future novels, and I hope people will give my books a chance, since I'm an 'unknown'."
When she's not writing, Trisha enjoys going to church, cooking/baking, cross-stitching, spending time with family and friends, and playing computer games. She currently resides in Hilham, Tennessee, with her mother. Pauline, and her Chihuahua, Snickers.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. Does the Christmas season inspire you? Do you believe the impossible can happen this time of year?
