I've always loved the Christmas season and used my own hometown for inspiration in creating Christmas in Friday Harbor. I enjoy a small town Christmas in my community, complete with a big tree in the middle of our main street. I brought in a few elements from my own life and mixed it with my imaginary places and friends to give readers a feel for Christmas along the harbor.
A Promise of Home
Linda and Sam sipped from steaming hot drinks, captivated by the scene outside the window of Harbor Coffee and Books. Downy white flakes fell from the sky while reflections of red, green, gold, and blue polka dots danced across the soft mounds of snow along the sidewalks. Snowfall was rare on the island, but it was the perfect accompaniment for the season. Friday Harbor was dressed for Christmas, from the strings of lights threaded across the streets and draped around the trees, to the majestic pine adorned with a bright star, towering over the park.
