A town I would like to live in…..Christmas time is when the world is most beautiful. People are a little nicer to each other. There’s shopping and baking and gifts to make or buy. Since we can’t bottle it, we write about it. Some things we have experienced and sometimes we just let our imagination run. I hope you enjoy the little village of Franklin.

Introducing T.L. Needham, author of Kitty Claus

“I am and was very demanding and anxious to get this project done before Thanksgiving, since it is a Christmas book. Colleen was very patient with me and responsive… and most importantly, the book was published the day before Thanksgiving. So, I am thankful to Colleen and the entire team that worked on this book. Thanks!”
