Yesterday was Thanksgiving in the US and this Sunday is the first Sunday of Advent. As much as I still can’t quite believe it when I hear Bing crooning in the grocery store, I think it might be true: Christmas is almost upon us.
More than a dozen years ago, I found myself thinking about Christmas throughout the year as I wrote a novel that imagined the wise men and what would make them go off in search of a star.
The result was my first novel, Seeker of Stars. A number of kind people have told me it is a book they return to each Christmas season.
If the book is new to you, I invite you to meet Melchior and the unmoving star he seeks.
