12 Blogs of Christmas – Day 6, Laurie Boris

laurieborisI’m super excited about today’s post. It’s from my IU colleague Laurie Boris.  Here’s Laurie to tell you a bit more about herself, as well as the beginning of her blog post:

Hi, everyone! I’m Laurie Boris, and I’m so excited to be part of the 12 Blogs of Christmas with some terrific authors and organized by my friend, bestselling author Martin Crosbie.

I’m a freelance writer and editor living in New York’s lovely Hudson Valley. Also the award-winning author of five novels, including the Trager Family Secrets series, I’ve been writing fiction for over twenty-five years. In my spare time, I like to cook, read, and help other writers as a contributing author and editor for IndiesUnlimited.com.

Drawing Breath, my coming-of-age novel about art, love, chronic illness, and human dignity, will be on sale for 99 cents through December. You can check out the rest of my books on my Amazon author page.

First, I feel your pain about Rudolph’s resignation. I’m sure he’ll do the air traffic controllers proud, but promoting Dancer could be a no-go. Seems the headlamp we wanted to attach to his antlers violates some PETA regulation. We’re looking into that. And you didn’t hear this from me, but there’s a rumor that a few elves are planning a sickout. Guess they’re still a little steamed about losing their collective bargaining rights.
