Santa Claus is coming to town, and so are the Tucker sisters.  Never mind a pony. The Tucker girls have inherited their father’s horse farm for Christmas. Make that . . . a run-down horse farm. It needs some serious TLC in order to make it sell-ready. Joanna knows that by recruiting her sisters and one handsome ranch hand they can fix up the place and even celebrate one last Christmas while they’re at it. However, to Isabella, returning to their home in Kentucky bluegrass country for Christmas seems like an impossible hurdle. Can her Chicago boyfriend make life merry and bright again?
One thing’s for sure—nothing is peace on earth for Sophia as a new beau brings up old wounds. And when the fate of the horse farm is put in jeopardy because Amy accidentally fraternizes with the enemy, tensions rise. But it’s not like the land developer stole Christmas . . . just her heart.

            Can the Tucker sisters have themselves a merry little Christmas?

Writing is usually a solitary act, but reader-favorite authors (and friends) Sandra D Bricker, Barbara J. Scott, Lynette Sowell, and Lenora Worth got a happy Christmas miracle when invited to work together on Sleigh Bells Ring

Author Spotlight 3: Barbara Scott

Among her many published works, Barbara is the co-author of the best-selling novel Sedona Storm, as well as the sequel, Secrets of the Gathering Darkness, both published by Thomas Nelson.

Many of her inspirational authors received starred reviews in Publisher's Weekly and Library Journal.




Where did your love of books/storytelling/reading/writing come from?

I’ve been a voracious reader since early childhood. Our family’s favorite haunt was the local library no matter where we lived. But my love for writing probably originated with my paternal grandmother. She wrote her first novel at the age of 70 and went on to write several more for her church’s denominational publishing house before her death. Since she subscribed to The Writer and Writer’s Digest, she would save up her old copies of those magazines and pass them on to me to read. I was about eight years old at the time. Some people said I was a bit precocious. ;-)

What do you think most characterizes your writing?

Realistic, feisty characters; romantic banter; and humor. Lots of humor…and action.

What was the hardest part of writing this book? 

At the time, I was recuperating from unexpected, major back surgery—a lumbar laminectomy. (Say that fast three times.) I had already committed to the project, and I wasn’t about to let the opportunity pass. I gave myself a week to recuperate and then ditched the pain meds. Frozen bags of peas were my “drug” of choice. I gritted my teeth, spent a few weeks on my reclining sofa with my feet propped up, and wrote the novella on my laptop. Losing myself in a fictional world acted as a good pain reliever too.

Are you a full-time or part-time writer?  How does that affect your writing?

That’s actually a hard question to answer. My business is words. I’m an experienced developmental book editor, an at-large acquisitions editor, and a writer. My life is a balancing act, but I’m never bored. Since I’m fairly organized, I set a daily word count goal for my writing, and I track my progress on a spreadsheet. I can usually write about a thousand words per day—sometimes more, sometimes less—five or six days a week.

If you had a superpower, what would it be?

Speed reading. Just think how useful that would be for solving crimes? But an eidetic (photographic) memory would be pretty cool too.
