THE CHRISTMAS CATCH
Sometimes the best gifts are unexpected...

Since the death of her military husband two years ago, single mom Christine White has struggled to get by. By throwing herself into her work as a Chicago copywriter, she's managed to keep food on the table but has gradually lost sight of what really matters, like building a bond with her four-year-old son. When Christine's best friend insists she spend Christmas in Vermont so she can get her life in order, Christine initially resists. Little does she know she's in for a memorable holiday that will reignite her faith and reawaken her heart.

Bachelor professor John Steadman has given up on finding the right one. Spending time with his friends while keeping up with his job seems satisfying enough. Then one day close to Christmas, a beautiful woman from Chicago nearly runs him off the road during a snowstorm. What's more, she's got a kid in her car. It's only natural that John and his trusty golden retriever want to help drag them out of a ditch and steer them toward their destination. What John doesn't expect is that soon he'll be hoping Christine and her son will be staying in Vermont - for more than just a little while.

A sweet, traditional PG-rated romantic comedy.
Standard novella-length, approximately 25,000 words.

From the Author:

Dear Readers,

It's hard to believe that one item of clothing could spark an entire story, but that's how it happened with THE CHRISTMAS CATCH. Two years ago, I was signed with a New York agent and hard at work creating screenplays targeted as features or for television. Though, unfortunately, none got made, I was lucky enough to have a few of them "optioned" (i.e., contracted while a producer tried to set the script up with a studio). A recurring theme in this success seemed to be that studios seek holiday projects. That said, crafting another holiday story was on the agenda. Problem was, I had no clue what I would write or where to begin. So, I temporarily set the idea aside, opting to think about it later. Meanwhile, it was the holiday season real-time, and my husband asked me what I wanted. Because I'd never owned one before and it seemed fitting and lovely, I asked for a "bright red Christmas scarf." After a wonderful Christmas morning with our large blended family, I sat by the fire with some hot tea, Christmas scarf draped around my neck, pondering the joys of the season. Two thoughts were on my mind. One, how lucky I was to have found love again with a man who generously accepted my children. And two, how happy I felt to have the sort of husband who asked me what I wanted then always worked hard to deliver. As I wound the scarf more tightly around me, both concepts blended and a burst of creative inspiration hit. What if I was (as I'd once been) a hard-working single mom who'd relinquished all hope of finding love ever lasting? What if things were compounded by the fact that I lived in a big city and my child was very young? What if I were suffering, not just from the ending of a marriage, but from the devastating loss of my husband in combat as well? My heart welled with emotion as I gripped the scarf, knowing somehow that was the answer. One way or another, this simple winter accessory would prove pivotal to the outcome of a tale involving hope, redemption and renewal.  So, on December 25, 2010, I opened my laptop and began to type. I finished the screenplay three weeks later and my agent adored it. Sadly, our professional relationship ended within the year, so the script never went wide. I tucked it away, knowing I had to do something with it someday. This April, after my ebooks began selling well on Kindle, I decided what. I would take the sweet tale I believed in and convert it to a fiction novella. What better way to have the characters I'd pulled for so ardently finally find their audience? I knew there would be modifications to make and fleshing out to do, but the basic concepts were there. I endeavored to ensure an early release, so that those who were interested could secure a copy by Christmas 2012. Happy holidays to all and I hope you really like it! Here's wishing you and yours the joys of the season - all year through.  With best wishes for happy endings,
Ginny Baird
