9780972168298: Just Before Midnight: A Christmas Eve Novella

Christmas Eve is the time to be at home enjoying the warmth and laughter of family, isn't it? A couple in their late 60s faces the prospects of a first ever Christmas with no kids or grandkids in the house ... An emergency room nurse handles every crisis at work with calm, but inside her emotions are roiling because she can't get hold of her husband or her youngest son ... Over the past two years he has lost his job, his house, his wife, and it feels like his kids are slipping away ... Her first baby is scheduled to arrive in a few weeks, but with her husband still on duty in Afghanistan, she's never felt so alone in all her life ... Four individuals and families are trying so hard to grab hold of the spirit of Christmas that they can't see they are about to run headlong into each other ... just before midnight.

From the Author:

I loved the movie "Crash" and my Christmas novella borrows the format of starting at the end and then going back a day to find out how how our cast of characters got into such a mess. Christmas is "the most wonderful time of the year" so when the clock strikes midnight, expect paths to cross and a miracle to happen.

About the Author:

Mark “M.K.” Gilroy is a veteran publishing executive who has acquired, developed, authored, and ghostwritten numerous books that have landed on various bestseller lists. His newest novel, Cold As Ice, marks the return of Detective Kristen Conner, a character USA TODAY calls “Miss Congeniality meets Castle’s Kate Beckett; a lethal, smart, and fun combo.” His first two novels in the Kristen Conner Mystery Series met with critical acclaim from national reviewers and readers. Both Cuts Like a Knife and Every Breath You Take were #1 bestsellers. When not writing Kristen Conner novels, Mark creates and publishes book products for retailers, ministries, and businesses. He recently launched a new publishing company, Sydney Lane Press. Gilroy holds undergraduate degrees in Speech Communications/Journalism and Biblical Literature, and two graduate degrees, the M.Div. and MBA. The father of six adult children, he resides with his wife, Amy, in Brentwood, Tennessee.
