Six Sentence Sunday, July 29, 2012

Following is an excerpt from my Novella, Cookies for Santa, which placed 2nd in the Celtic Hearts Romance Writers Novellas Need Love, Too! contest.  The story is about a tough homicide detective who has been assigned to help out in the Social Services department for the holiday season.

Spinelli turned to face the mirror once again. Hecouldn’t help but wonder how he came to be wearing a Santa suit at the mall. He wanted to be an elf but there were no elf positions available and Human Resources told him that there’s no such thing as a six foot-two elf. As he stared at his ridiculous self in the mirror he could hear Captain Jackson’s laugh echo throughout his head. He recalled the words she said to him the day before, “Maybe playing Santa will do you some good. You know, soften you up a bit.”

  1. This six is fun. Most men want to play the Santa, and Spinelli wants to be an elf. Very cute. I bet he’s a softie at heart. Congratulations on your 2nd place in the contest. 🙂
