Synopsis: Oliver the Ornament is a heartwarming tale of one family’s cherished Christmas ornaments. The story centers on Oliver, who has been with this family since Mom and Dad’s very first date. Years later, Oliver, now injured and bullied, still has the magic of Christmas in his heart. “The story follows Oliver’s excitement for Christmas, his heartbreak, and his determination to overcome all odds to save the day. Oliver, along with his friends, will warm your heart with his kindness, humility, and love for his family and friends. We hope the story will bring families together to tell the stories of their own ornaments and the special meaning that so many of them possess. Because after all, “Every Ornament Tells a Story.”

About The Author
Several years ago, I sent a copy of my first book to the individual in charge of People’s Best New Books feature, hoping it might receive consideration. I followed up with a phone call to the writer who confirmed she had received the book, but said she hadn’t had the chance to look at it. Knowing there was nothing more to do, I simply thanked her for her consideration.
Several weeks later, I was stunned when I heard from friend after friend telling me they had received their copy of People and there was Oliver the Ornament right on their Best New Books feature. Even though it was only days before Christmas, sales went off like a wildfire.
Then a year later, we were contacted by a segment producer from Fox regarding an upcoming feature of the Hottest Toys of the Year. Within weeks, Oliver the Ornament was featured on national television in this segment.
So much product placement that is seen on television today is what is called “Pay for Play,” meaning you have to pay to get your product featured. It’s incredibly humbling that both of these features were completely organic, and achieved on the merits of the book and not the amount of a check I would have had to write.
