A Holiday Memory Christmas in a Middle Eastern Desert

I must start this post with a disclaimer: while the heroine in
my holiday romance A Christmas Together also spends December 25th in a Middle Eastern
desert, her story is in no way, shape, or form inspired by true events. My own Christmas
in the UAE was decidedly less eventful than Brennan’s. (If I remember correctly,
she might have gotten kidnapped by terrorists, and then rescued by a hunky Air Force
Since my significant other (who is NOT an Air Force major…)
only has one brother in the US, he tends to volunteer to hold down the fort during
the holiday season, when most of his colleagues make plans to spend a week or two
at home. Thus was the case in December 2011, while we were posted in the sleepy
capital city of Abu Dhabi. In keeping with the culture of oil-money extravagance,
various restaurants were offering “Traditional Christmas Dinner: With Ham and
Turkey”—at the cringe-worthy price of a couple hundred dollars a head. Despite
the promise of free-flowing champagne, we decided to save our pennies and eat in
(although we did splurge on some actual sausage from the “pork room” at
the local supermarket).
For the most part, everyone we knew had left the city. Most of
our neighbors had also jetted off a week before, so our quiet little development
was even quieter than usual. It was hot, humid, with zero chances of snow (or even
rain), and since theatrical releases overseas trail a few months behind the US,
we didn’t even have the option of going out for a holiday movie. In short, we were
pretty much on track to have one of the least Christmas-y Christmases in memory.
As we were arguing over Netflix options, however, a knock sounded.
We opened the door to find five carolers, led by a man in a Santa costume. Flummoxed,
we watched as Santa strummed his acoustic guitar, prompting his troupe to commence
synchronized dancing, while singing a particularly “Pop” rendition of
We Wish You A Merry Christmas.
They made our night, and we were too stunned to even say a proper
thank you.

A Holiday Memory Christmas in Japan

by KaLyn
; (kind of goes with my Christmas in Cancun theme)

Nothing is ever easy when you are a military family, and holidays
are often the most difficult, but one year our Christmas plans paid off in an unexpected
A month before we were to move half way around the world to live
for three years in Japan—after I’d quit my job, we’d sold the house and were living
in temporary base quarters—Macho Marine announced that his orders had been changed.
It wasn’t the first time the Marine Corps had done that to us, but this time it
threw us for a major loop. His new orders were for a one-year tour…unaccompanied!
If military life teaches you anything, it’s to be prepared. Knowing
we were going to be gone for three years, we’d saved for a Christmas trip home half-way
through his tour of duty. We used that money for the round trip plane tickets to
Japan for Favorite (only) Daughter and me. Since the two of us weren’t supposed
to be there, we all lived off base in an extremely small apartment, but it was our
home for that unique year abroad.
Interestingly, only one percent of Japanese are Christians, although
Okinawa has about fifty-thousand Americans living on and around the military bases.
So as the holidays approached, little changed. Unlike in the States, Japanese stores
were not loaded with green and red. No holly or pine adorned street windows, and
you couldn’t find festive clothing decorated with silly Santas or reindeer. Speakers
blared no traditional holiday music and life continued without the overzealous holiday
Unless you were on base, it didn’t look like Christmas. Hour-long
lines at Pack ‘n Wrap and the post office were the best indication the holiday approached.
The women’s section at the Exchange, the base department store, was normally filled
with perfume, jewelry and lingerie but had been stripped bare after payday in mid-November.
Our friends living in base housing on accompanied tours, decked
their homes in the treasured family ornaments brought with them. We used the construction
paper ornaments our daughter made at the base day care she attended a few hours
every week. We attempted to keep our family traditions but selecting a tree together
ended in a toddler tantrum when her father had near heart failure over the outrageous
price for a pine tree resembling Charlie Brown’s.
On Christmas morning, the gifts that had been sent over 7,500
miles appeared under the tree beside the ones bought for each other. We videoed
Favorite Daughter opening each and every present so the grandparents could belatedly
see her joy. As noon rolled around, so did about a dozen other Marine officers who
missed home as much as we did. Steaks on the grill replaced the usual turkey or
ham since our tiny apartment didn’t have an oven.
As the men played with Favorite Daughter, missing their own children,
I thanked God for the money we’d saved for that Christmas trip home. It allowed
us to be together for the entire year and share our family on Christmas day with
other Marines who couldn’t be with theirs.
This holiday season, please remember the 225,000 Marines, soldiers
and sailors deployed overseas who cannot be with their families for Christmas.

A Holiday Memory A Christmas Memory

I’m pleased to be able to share my Christmas memory with you,
and I must admit, this was not an easy assignment for me. For one thing, I’ve been
fortunate enough to have many wonderful Christmases and it’s hard to pinpoint particular
moments. The other reason this is a tough piece to write is because we lost my mother-in-law
to cancer last year and this will be the first holiday season without her. My mother-in-law
Gail was a force of nature. She usually hosted the rest of us and we all used to
admire her Martha Stewart-like decorating abilities. Seriously, the woman could
do wonders with a sprig of holly, a few boughs and strategically-placed candy canes.
One thing Gail always enjoyed at the holidays was games. She
usually devised a few, making us compete for prizes. There was always a “mystery
present,” one that was invariably passed around while a timer counted seconds.
We were encouraged to “steal” the gift from each other. When the timer
buzzed, whoever held the gift won it. Because of Gail’s enthusiasm, we had a lot
of raucous parties.
This year, we won’t have Gail with us and it’s bound to be our
most poignant Christmas ever.
However, we have made sure to keep her spirit alive. We’ve included
some of her tried-and-true recipes in our menu (she loved a cherry jelly ring).
We’ll likely play some of her favorite music (Neil Diamond and Barbra Streisand).
And the gift stealing game has been set in motion.
Will it be hard? Indeed, but we’ll make the best of it. After
all, if she were with us, I know what she’d say.
“Stop your moping and refill my wine glass. And don’t be
cheap with the red.”
I’ll be raising a glass of Merlot in her honor.

Happy Holidays to all from Liquid Silver Books!

Daisy Banks shares details
about the creation of Stephen Grafton in the book Christmas

About the Book

Title Christmas Carols
Genre Historical Romance
Author Daisy Banks
Book heat level G, Sweet
Stephen Grafton, the blind organist
at Holy Trinity Church, is gaining a reputation for his fine playing and
compositions. Alice Broadbrace’s initial venture back into society after years
in deep mourning brings her to the notice of the talented organist, and he offers
her the opportunity to sing a solo carol to his accompaniment. His courage
convinces her to find her own, while her charm entices him into thoughts of
romance. A difficult walk in a snow storm is only the beginning of Stephen and
Alice’s journey to happiness. Enjoy this sweet Victorian tale of talent and
love blossoming.

Introducing Stephen Grafton

Name: Stephen Grafton
Age: 29
Gender: Male
Birthplace: Birmingham, England.
Profession: Musician and composer, organist at Holy Trinity
Ethnicity:  English
Stephen is approximately 5’10 in height, quite tall for the
era he lives in. He is lean and slender with fair hair and expressive hands.
Stephen has been blind since birth and uses a dog to help him, he calls the dog
Who is the
significant other in your character’s life?
Alice Broadbrace.
How does your hero
Stephen wears the fashions of his era, the early 1860’s. His
day to day wear is a suit with tail coat, trousers and waistcoat. For recital
performances he asks his valet to tie an elaborate bow tie for him. His dog,
Blue, also has a bow on his collar for recital evenings. As the story is set in
the winter Stephen wears a warm top coat and a hat. He does wear gloves as is
socially acceptable for the era but he dislikes them as they mean he loses
depth in his sense of touch.
If you could only
hear this character’s voice (but not see him) what characteristic would
identify him?
Self certainty and confidence radiate in Stephen’s voice. He
has passed through many trials to reach the position he is in and this means he
is definitely willing to voice his opinion with little fear.
How educated is this
Stephen has a doctorate in music from Cambridge. He prefers
not to use the official title as he finds people make presumptions about him if
he does. He takes an interest in things cultural and issues of the day in his
local community. 
Does he scrape by,
live comfortably, live extravagantly?
Stephen has his own home not too far from Holy Trinity
Church. A legacy from a relative assisted him to attend Cambridge and once he
qualified to purchase his home. He receives a salary from the church for his
playing and his recitals. He lives comfortably enough with his dog, has a
manservant to attend him and assist with the running of his house, and a maid
of all work who comes in to clean.
What is your
character’s viewpoint on wealth?
Wealth is a useful tool which enables Stephen to travel and
live his life in the way he wishes. He does not consider himself to be a
wealthy man in monetary terms he is far more concerned with his music.
Are any of his skills
a source of pride or embarrassment, and if so, which ones and why?
When Stephen was a very small boy a tutor recognized his
talent in music. He is a gifted musician and with coaching his skills improved
to the point he could attend university to study further. Stephen is aware of
his skills and is very demanding of himself in performance and composition. He
would say he is always learning.
What kinds of things
does your character always carry in his pockets?
Stephen usually carries a white linen handkerchief, keys to
his home and to his cash box in the house. He also makes sure he has his coin
holder and some dog biscuits as a treat for Blue.
Does this character
see morality as black-and-white, or with shades of gray?
This question would entertain Stephen as being blind he
doesn’t see the world through visuals but through touch, sound and smell.
Stephen has a strong sense of what he considers right and wrong, and finds some
social customs and expectations foolish especially those Alice believes might
lead to gossip. He would say, the gossips should go and find more useful
Does your character
care about what others assume about him?
In short, no. Stephen is a self confident person and has a
vast amount of self belief. He takes care that his appearance and manners should
be acceptable and has attained a level of independence he enjoys. If people
assume he is weakened in any way by being blind he will do his best to show
them that is not so. He does recognize there are situations when he requires
some assistance and isn’t too proud to ask for it in unfamiliar places.

About Your Writer

Why do you think your
writer chose to write about you?
Ms. Banks enjoys the unusual and I suspect she found me a
surprise and therefore wished to work with me. As the story continued I like to
think Ms. Banks grew rather fond of Alice and I. We are both glad she told the
What do you wish your
writer had not told others about you?
Nothing. I am aware that there are times in the story when I
am forthright and frank but those qualities are part of my personality. I am
sure readers will understand my motives for some comments were genuine concerns.
I only wanted the best outcome possible.
What other character
from your book do you think your writer should write a book about, and why?
I think Ms. Banks should devote sometime to Elijah Whistler,
the owner of the Eagle Book Emporium. I would think there might be a natural
affinity between the two, with his interest in books and her work as an author.
If Ms. Banks spent some time working with him it might also soothe his
discomfort at the outcome of my story.
Why do you think your
writer loves to write?
Ms. Banks listens to music frequently but she is not
musical. I am afraid that is a flaw I am forced to comment on. Ms. Banks
neither plays nor sings and in my opinion she therefore devotes her energies to
writing. I do know she is quite driven at times when she writes. Having some
understanding of the creative process I recognize its grip on an individual.
However, I still think she would be improved by a more direct association with
music. When she began the tale I had hopes to influence her to at least take up
some choral activity but sadly I failed.
Is there anything
you’d like to say to your writer?
Ms. Banks, Alice and I thank you for putting our story into

To Eternity
by Daisy Banks 
Introducing Magnus Johansson from To Eternity. This is his
bucket list.

About the Book

Title To Eternity, wild beneath the moon-Book 2 in the Timeless
Genre Paranormal
Author Daisy Banks
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
For four centuries Magnus has lived
according to the dictates of the moon, his heart isolated by the domination of his
wolf nature. Now fate has brought the beautiful, independent Sian to his house at
Darnwell and their irresistible attraction has exploded into a white-hot passion.
Yet she is not wolf, and the time has come for her to embrace the change. But once
she completes the ritual and claims her place next to Magnus, the rivals will appear
on the horizon…

The Bucket List of Magnus Johansson

This interview is designed for your hero to describe his/her bucket list for
readers. Answer the questions as the character.

Name: Magnus Johansson
Age: Approximately four hundred and eighty five.
Gender: Male
Birthplace: Darnwell England
Profession: He is of independent means and therefore has no professional
Welcome to Romance Lives
Forever. Your author introduced you. Now we’d like to get to know you better. Please
tell us about yourself.
Thank you for inviting me to take part in this interview. Man
or myth, or something in between, that is how I have described myself in the past.
My existence, I can’t call it life, was grim. Until I met Sian I had been solitary
for many years. I preferred to be alone rather than risk forming relationships with
others. I had some bitter experiences in my youth and the pain from them was compounded
by living through the losses of the war years. I thought being alone was my only
honorable option.
I am sure you are aware I am afflicted with the werewolf curse.
Please, don’t worry. I am quite safe at present. The full moon is past for this
month. Even during the full moon I try to limit the number of times I hunt and am
very selective of my hunting grounds. When I am not under the control of the moon
I spend much time in organizing restoration work on my home. The orangery and the
walled garden are current projects. Since I met Sian she has helped me with these
tasks and so many other things. Sian has turned my world around, I wouldn’t be here
speaking with you today if not for her influence. Sian shares my interest in antiques
and architecture. She has an eye for beauty in its many forms.
I do apologize, this is supposed to be about me, but I can’t
help talking about Sian. Shall we continue with the interview?
When someone dies, we say they “kicked the bucket.”
Therefore, a list of things that a person wants to accomplish, places to go, situations
to experience, and so on have become known as a “Bucket List.” We’d like
to know yours, please. If you haven’t made one before, perhaps now would be a good
time. Who knows? It might inspire another book. While you’re at it, how about telling
us about some of your other favorite things? Here are the questions.
What are two places you
would like to visit before you die, and why?
This is very interesting. As a werewolf, my death, barring unfortunate
circumstances, is very unlikely, but I would like to answer the questions all the
same. I would enjoy the chance to visit Egypt with Sian. She quite rightly pointed
out that if I journey there I could relish the sense of a time well beyond my own
existence. That would be a very enlightening experience.
There is also a beach I once visited in the Caribbean and I would
like to return there. The memory of the place features often in the dreams I share
with Sian. I would like to take her there and show her the reality. Hopefully, in
the intervening years since I first visited, the beach hasn’t changed too much.
I once found peace there and in my younger days that was a very rare occurrence.
Where is a place you would
never like to return, and why?
The place is London, but not as it is now. Sian has taken me
to visit London several times and I have enjoyed each journey we have made. I would
prefer not to return as I was in the eighteenth century. I behaved rather badly
then and have no pride in my activities in that era of my life. Grief can have a
very damaging effect in many different ways. I’m afraid it made a self-centered
creature of me. I hunted with impunity and relished the chase in a way I am rather
ashamed of now.
Who is someone you would
like to meet, and why?
I would like to meet the founder of my family line and discover
how the werewolf curse first took hold. I would ask them if they ever found a way
to conquer the wretched affliction.
Who is someone you would
like to avoid, and why?
At present the person I would wish to have no contact with is
Mr. Franklyn Gorsewell. He is a despicable creature who has threatened and even
physically harmed the woman I love. A reckoning between he and I must eventually
come, and I believe it will be savage. Please don’t think I fear that, I don’t,
but Sian will be distressed by such an event, after all he was once her employer
and so called mentor. He abused that position of trust. He is utterly without merit.
If you could time travel
to any date, what would it be, and what would you do there?
I have a rather strange and sometimes strained relationship with
time. If I were able to travel in time I would wish to return to the day I met Sian.
I would do things differently you see. I’m afraid to say I wasn’t very grateful
at first that she made me live. I’d been alone for so long, I might as well have
been dead. I fought against being dragged back to life in the fear of its hurts.
I shouldn’t have done. I ought to have been gentler with her, accepted the wonderful
love she offered me and thanked her for it. Yes, if I could travel in time I would
return to experience those first days with her again. She is the most courageous
woman I have ever met and I’d like to honor that rather than being as difficult
as I was. Of course, Sian has forgiven me my foibles, but I would like to make her
memories of our meeting sweeter.
What is your birth order?
I am an only child.
Tell us about your favorite
toy as a child.
My childhood was rather isolated, understandable given my heritage.
I had few toys but I did have several dogs as companions. It was then I discovered
my body is not that of an ordinary person. The dogs aged and died, but I hardly
changed. My parents always provided new ones, but I had to accept the loss of creatures
I loved. Each lost hound proved bitter lesson for me. I also had several favorite
ponies and horses as I matured. Their loss though painful didn’t sting quite so
much as those of my dogs. They did not sleep on my bed, nor beg from my plate or
offer such devoted companionship.
I was very fond of a hunting hawk. I’d named her Starlight, for
her gleaming under wing feathers, when she died I gave up hawking. Later, once I
reached adolescence and I’d undergone the first year or two of moon induced transformations,
my parents departed and I became master of my home. I amused myself as any young
man of wealth might in the era.
Describe your favorite
food and how it’s prepared.
The wolf inheritance influences many aspects of my life and as
a man I eat a great deal of steak. My cook knows to serve it rare.
Tell us about your best
Other than my few servants, my contact with people over the recent
past has been very limited. In the war years when I was quite active there were
young men who I called friends, however, they never truly knew me as I am. Sian
is the one person who knows and accepts me. She offers me the gift of her love.
She is everything.
I must leave now as Sian is waiting. Thank you for your questions.
I hope we meet again sometime in the future. Good day.
