Books for Christmas


As Christmas is only three weeks away, you may be wondering what to do for gifts. If the person you are buying for likes to read, I have the perfect solution for you. My novels are very reasonably priced and will bring hours of pleasure and entertainment.

Three of the six are set on the west coast of Canada. The remote parts of the coast are a rough and tough “man’s world,” but in my novels, the women who live in this environment grow stronger as they face the challenges of coastal life.

A friend of mine painted a portrait that she kindly allowed me to use for the “Marlie” book cover. When I first saw the painting at her house, I knew this was Marlie, the character in my novel.

How did I recognize her? It was in the eyes.

Her left eye has a hint of tears and says, “You’ve hurt me.” But her right eye is hard. It seems to say, “Don’t you ever do that again.” Look at her eyes in the cover of the book. Do you see what I mean?

You can find Marlie on all the Amazon sites. Just go to amazon.com or amazon.ca, or amazon.co.uk and type inΒ Marlie. If you have an e-reader other than Kindle, you can find Marlie on Smashwords.com. It is affordably priced so as not to break the bank.

  3. Oh!! In that case, Australia or India might be closer. You could try amazon.in or amazon.com.au. Let me know if you have any luck with those. If you have a Kindle, they should be able to provide downloads. If you have a different e-reader, try smashwords.com.


  4. I love this idea, of sharing your books for Christmas gifts. That cover is amazing. How lucky to have an artist friend who captured your character so well.

    • At the time, I was looking for an idea for the cover, but this painting almost leaped off the wall at me, saying, “Hi! I’m Marlie!” I was so happy that my friend allowed me to use her painting for my cover.


  5. I enjoyed Marli, Anneli. A great read for the holidays, or any time. πŸ™‚
