Winter Wonderland was a fun experience in writing. There was a lot of research since I wasn't around Detroit in 1951, but years later I made frequent trips to the Motor City with Mother and then Steve. J. L. Hudson's was a large department store and residents came from all over to enjoy the tallest building that featured so many things on numerous floors. Their famous Thanksgiving parade drew people each year, and continued to do so until recently. This is a novella which contains Biblical truths, and is an inspirational romance reminding readers what a once exciting city Detroit, Dearborn and surrounding communities. I hope you'll enjoy WINTER WONDERLAND.About the Author:
