'Leave it to Scott-Heron to save some of his best for last. This posthumously published memoir is an elegiac culmination to his musical and literary career. He's a real writer, a word man, and it is as wriggling and vital in its way as Bob Dylan's Chronicles: Volume One.' New York Times
It has been four years since Trenton McNeil, Hollywood Heart breaker, found his wife in an uncompromising position with her co-star on Christmas Eve. He leaves without a second glance and decides to go back home to the Bronx and hide away. The Holiday season brings back a horrible reminder of his past. He wants no parts of it until he meets up with a family friend. Lauren Clark was left at the altar by her fiance. She wants no part of dating or men until her friend needs a favor... Pretend to be the girlfriend of her brother in law mega heartthrob Trenton McNeil so he can get rid of his ex-wife once and for all. Can these two pull off the perfect kiss...just one for the holiday? Can the joy of the holiday season unite these two lost souls?"
It all started back in 1995, shortly before Christmas. I felt inspired to write a Christmas story, so I did. In all truthfulness it tore me up to write it, because my vision was not limited to my words. It made me remember what Christmas was really all about. At that time I decided to write a story each year for Christmas and give copies out as gifts. After a few years I started writing stories for Thanksgiving and Easter as well. Then I started to write stories whenever I felt moved by the Lord. The recipients of my stories would often encourage me to publish them. So now I offer a second collection of what I call, for lack of a better title, 'Holiday Stories - Volume 2'. They carry a decided Christian slant and hopefully give reason to be thankful. Hopefully they will bring you enjoyment, and many thoughtful moments. It's difficult to try to describe this mixed bag of stories, especially when you know it's only through the help of the Lord that the ideas and stories came into being. There is a similar central theme to many of the stories. There is that common thread of spirituality in the message of each story. The stories all are to bring a remembrance of Jesus Christ and what he did for sinful humankind. The stories are to illustrate a higher and purer love in sacrificial action in a world that we are all too familiar with. I hope you will enjoy these stories as much as I enjoyed writing them. And I pray to the Lord that my words will convey the vision that I was granted when I wrote them.
