Jolly Holly wrote the "About the Book" below. Sadly her mother passed before she was able to see the final product of the book, however she did have the opportunity to see the sketches.
The author developed The Christmas Eve Conversation in 1980 after a conversation with her husband William. He was building a Christmas display in front of his veterinary hospital to raise money for Children's' Hospital. William expressed that, while raising money proved valuable, he was uncomfortable building a display primarily focused on Santa, leaving Jesus secondary. In response to his concerns, the author wrote and displayed The Christmas Eve Conversation to ensure that patrons, her children and others continued to keep Jesus as an integral part of Christmas. The story involves a conversation between Jesus and Santa Claus in which Santa apologizes to Jesus for the change in focus from Jesus's birthday to Santa bringing presents. Jesus's response reflects the unconditional love he feels for those he died for. Upon writing the story, the author realized the value of her words and sent it to a newspaper that published it. The author's wisdom concerning the commercialization and devaluation of the true meaning of Christmas was well received and inspirational to her readers. The intent of the author while writing The Christmas Eve Conversation consisted of her desire to preserve faith during the holidays and provide others with a perspective concerning the religious and celebratory discrepancies that occur during Christmas. The Victorian house illustrated throughout the book is a depiction of the author's home. Her children have jestingly dubbed the house the "purple monster." They also affectionately call the author "The Queen of the Purple Monster."

   Rachel is the newest member to our team. I had her come out to one of my gigs and take pictures as a test run after reviewing her work and she passed with flying colors!
