Weekend Briefing- Christmas Party Part Four Post Two

Ready for more, agents? Of course you are- you've been trained for vigorous parties for your covers. Only this one is for fun!

Note: But not too much fun. Please stop using the experimental stealth mistletoe. It will not end well.

And now- it's time to take a look at a file from civilian consultant, Kellyn Roth!

Her biography files:

Kellyn Roth has been writing stories since she was seven, though she wrote quite a few (awful) poems and songs before that. Nowadays, she pens Christian and historical fiction, including lots of adorable children and mischievous animals- as well as a generous dose of BBC-style drama.

Miss Roth lives in the beautiful Columbia River Gorge with her parents, two little brothers, crazy border collies, annoying but loveable cat, and assorted cows and chickens. She is a homeschooled highschooler who spends most of her non-writing, non-reading time blogging, riding horses, attempting clarinet and saxophone, and pretending she has other hobbies besides writing.

Her fictionalized report of post-war Munich:

Lt. Neil Hudson is sure to have a rotten Christmas.

How can he have anything but a rotten Christmas when he's stuck in war-torn Germany away from his family, friends, and all hope of a decent turkey dinner?

That's when the Slades come into his life.


And now for Mission Head herself's assessment:

This story was so atmospheric and really takes you back to the 1940s right after World War II. We follow a young soldier who knows nothing good is coming to him this Christmas, or even future Christmases. But then he meets a German family in need and everything changes. A very poignant, thoughtful story perfect for Christmas.

I received a complimentary copy from the author and the opinions are my own.


Finally, agents, we come to the climax of the party (hopefully without any further need of disciplinary forced exercise for being on the naughty list). Continuing... Shèng dàn kuài lè!
