Happy holidays! All month long meet some of our authors and their best selling books.
Today Chris Cannon is sharing her five favorite holiday gifts!
My first big-moment holiday gift was when my parents gave my sister and I the coveted Barbie dream house. It had three floors, an elevator, and despite the fact that it was made of particle board, plastic and stickers it was magical.
The next gift that signaled a new era in toy-dom was the electronic game Simon. You had to repeat the random and ever faster pattern of flashing colored lights exactly right or you would lose. There were many fierce Christmas-Cookie fueled Simon battles.
Once I was a teen Christmas was a fun day at the mall shopping for clothes. My sister and mom and I would go to lunch and talk and have a wonderful time. Okay maybe we cried a little bit when we tried on jeans but that’s normal. Right? There weren’t any surprises under the tree but I was thrilled with my new clothes.
Once I met my future husband in college my favorite Christmas gift was a giant stuffed bear which was ridiculously romantic and utterly useless, and I loved it. Mr. Snuggles still lives in the top of my closet smiling down at me every day. What? How could I get rid of him? He sparks joy.
My favorite Christmas gift came a few years ago after my first book was published. My husband stole the vertical book banner for Going Down In Flames and took it to a shop and had it framed. Now it hangs in our foyer. It reminds me that I married a wonderful man who is proud of me and that dreams really do come true.

Bryn is back for her senior year at the Institute for Excellence, also known as shape-shifting dragon school. She isn’t sure which is scarier, the life-force sucking dragons stalking campus or the fact that she’s officially betrothed to Jaxon, a guy who will never love her. Not that she could ever love him, either… That’s just ridiculous.
Senior year should be fun. Her parents are alive, she’s finally fitting in, and she’s learning how to be a Medic. But what’s with Jaxon giving her strange looks? He runs hot and cold, and he doesn’t even have the excuse of being a hybrid fire-and-ice-breathing dragon like her. One minute they’re having a great time and the next, she wants to blast a fireball at his head. The marriage contract of doom looms over them–unless this match not made in heaven kindles a flame…
