Snow Globe Romance Interview

Snow Globe Dreams

Have you ever seen a snow globe in a store, and wished you could be transported into the snow wonder world? 
 
I have to admit, I regularly do.  Being born in 1962 I feel as if I missed out on the gentle time of life, when the world was more like ‘It’s a Wonderful Life.’
 
But what snow globe world would you transport into?  A Santa Village, a Thomas Kincaide Village, or even a New York City Village? The possibilities are endless, but for me, it would be a small village, where no cars spoil the road, where people have taffy pulls, sing Christmas carols, bake sugar cookies and understand the true reason for the season is Jesus Christ.
 
Whatever you would like your snow globe Christmas to be, I hope you will consider reading one of my newest releases, Snow Globe Romance.  This is a Christian Romance Novella and will transport you to that village I spoke of.
 
Enjoy the journey.
 
 

Snow Globe Romance
 
When Elsa finds an old snow globe in the attic of the New York City mansion where she works as a cook’s assistant, she is magically transported to the quaint Snow Globe Village where she meets the long lost grandson of her employer and is offered a chance to become a baker and his wife… Will Grant convince her to stay in the Snow Globe Village or will she turn the snow globe upside down and take them both back to a place where it would be impossible for them to share a life of love?

A mini-interview with Teresa:

What inspired you to write Snow Globe Dreams?
I was at a thrift store and found a snow globe and thought what a great story I could write about one.

Which character in your new release did you most enjoy writing? Why?

I love the young maid because, although hysterical at times, she is resilient as well.

What, if anything, do you and your heroine have in common?

We both love Snow Globe worlds.

Guest Post by Teresa Ives Lilly — Thanksgiving Memories

As a writer, the one thing I want to leave the reader with is a sense of having been right there in the story, enjoying the events, the places, the holidays.  Why you ask? Because when I was younger, the holidays were so wonderful for me.
My family got together at Thanksgiving each year, and celebrated not only Thanksgiving but Christmas at the same time. So, we put up a small Christmas tree and decorated it with plastic pilgrims, Indians, cornucopias and leaves.   All gifts were wrapped in brown paper, or orange paper and placed below the tree. 
The day would begin with the men all watching the football game, while the women gathered in the kitchen to cook. Because I was the youngest, I set the table.  But there was laughter and singing and great smells.
Then came the meal.  A table over flowing with mouthwatering food. (I’ll take the mashed potatoes please and skip the turkey, unless it’s a leg.)
Following the meal, we would gather in the living room and spend hours opening presents.
My parents are home with the Lord now, and my closest sister just went to be with Him a month ago. There are no more Thanksgiving gathering.
When I walk through the stores and see the Christmas décor already up, and wonder where all the Thanksgiving décor has gone, it makes me remember the beautiful times.
In the picture, you can see me at age 16, the year I wrapped all the presents I gave in brown paper bags made to look like turkeys…
But, I too have joined the ranks of early Christmas decorators, and even now I offer up my Christmas novellas for you to consider.
However, I promise, they are full of traditions and warm cozy moments for you to enjoy.
 
An Angel for Mistletoe is sure to please you who love holiday and traditions
When Angelica Cartwright heads to Kentucky to begin her teaching career, she never dreams she will be waylaid in Mistletoe Kentucky with a broken foot and cared for by a handsome wood carver and his daughter. However, she soon finds that Luke Tanner is also carving himself onto her heart.
