Meet Main Street Author Kelly Rae

This week I'm featuring the Authors of Main Street who have a box set, Christmas on Main Street, which should be available on or about Nov. 1, at a bargain price that won't wreck your budget.

Each day I'll feature one of the eleven authors of Christmas on Main Street. Today's spotlight is shining on talented Contemporary Romance author Kelly Rae. Kelly writes books that prove Love really is all there is!

Good morning, Kelly! Welcome to SlingWords. I'll pour the coffee while you tell us about your book that's in the Box Set: What if...this Christmas.

What if...this Christmas

Marriage is a wonderful institution for some people, other people. Katie Wright doesn't see it as a necessary step in her life, or her relationship. Unfortunately her boyfriend, Chris Staller, doesn't see things the same. Because of this divide, this Christmas could be the first of many or the last of too few.

Joan: What inspired you to write this particular holiday story?

Kelly: This holiday story was a way for my readers (ok, and me too) to touch base with characters from my book, What if....

In the book, Katie and Chris find that they've both settled back in their home town, a town they thought they left for good after senior year. Only to find that their emotions, both good and bad, still reside there as well. I loved this couple so much I wanted to see what they were up to and if the word marriage would create as much havoc as I thought.

Joan: What is your favorite holiday memory?

Kelly: I think my favorite memory is when I was about six years old and my step mom dressed up like Santa Claus and made just enough noise to wake me on Christmas Eve. I knew I wasn't supposed to see him, it was against the rules and I knew for sure I wasn't supposed to talk to him. So, when Santa put his fingers to his lips and shhhh'd I didn't make a single noise. I was memorized! And even when I found out the truth, it still remained a precious memory!

Joan: Just about everyone has a holiday horror story. What's the worst Christmas you ever spent?

Kelly: I would say the worst Christmas was the one where I finally broke the news to my son there was no "real" Santa, only the spirit of Santa. To which he said, "You mean you've been lying to me for my WHOLE life?" Boy did I feel like a big Grinch!

Joan: What's the title of your next individual book?

Kelly: My next book is titled I do, But I Can't.
