Let's welcome Erin Bevan to The Roses of Prose.
Two years ago this Christmas I read a Christmas book. We tend to do that around Christmas time, don’t we?
I can’t remember the title, or the author sadly, but I do remember it was a book about a girl who was related to Santa. And really, I can’t remember much else about the book. I remember I liked it, so props to the unmentioned author, but reading this book got my wheels to spinning.
What if I wrote my own Christmas book? What would it be about? And of course, in related to all things Christmas I thought about Santa, elves, toys, Santa’s workshop, and then I thought what if the unthinkable happened? The workshop goes up in flames…close to Christmas. How would the elves deal? How would this effect my own heroine or hero, and slowly but surely, the story was born. I thought of some of my favorite recent stories, Twilight, The Selection, and a favorite Christmas movie, The Santa Claus. I jumbled ideas from all and came up with my own plot twists, and what I hope you think of as a little bit of humor. Because after all, who wants to read a book when they don’t get a good chuckle or two?
Now, I have a Valentine’s short story, and a Christmas novel. What’s next? St. Patrick’s day maybe. I can just see a good-looking man with an Irish brogue behind a bar. In fact, I’ve even gone so far as to write a scene with him… perhaps he will be one of my next projects.
Merry Christmas everyone!
Princess Jenny Claus has thirty suitors to choose from to take on the role of Santa and her husband, and only three weeks to do it. When an outsider crashes into and destroys the toy factory, her Gala and the prospect of Christmas for children everywhere are ruined.
Logan Moss awakens from his plane crash, suffering from partial amnesia. Surrounded by a world he always considered make believe, he has a hard time accepting his new surroundings. Except for one snow princess who he’s deeply fascinated with. And when Logan realizes she only has three weeks to pick a husband, he begins to feel compelled to be that man. Problem is, he can’t remember if he has a wife.
With Christmas getting closer, Jenny has to make the hardest decision of her life...duty or love.

Erin Bevan was born and raised in Southwest Arkansas. She spent her teenage years working for her aunt at the local gas station, flipping burgers and making milkshakes, dreaming of the day when something better would come her way.
Fast forward ten years later, she found herself stuck inside an apartment in South Korea, while her daughter went to preschool and her husband went to work. Alone and unable to speak the local language, she turned to books for a friend. After reading several in such a short time, she decided to try her hand at writing one.
That first one sucked, but by the fifth and sixth book, Erin started to get the hang of this writing thing. Getting the first contract in her inbox was a dream come true. Now, with three babies at home, she squeezes in stories one word at a time, one sentence at a time, one day at a time. She’s a full time mom, a full time wife, with a little writer sprinkled in whenever she can get the chance.
