D. J. St. Amant
Christmas Spirits is the culmination of St. Amant's own Christmas tradition of writing notes, essays, poems, and stories as a way of offering a unique Christmas gift to his friends. He wants to encourage others to change or adopt traditions that will help to make Christmas more sacred by sharing intimate time together. St. Amant offers his stories as a contribution to make our Christmases mean that much more.
"...large white flakes of snow start to whirl in the air around us. Dad holds up his hand to catch some. As the snowflakes land on the palm of his hand and melt, he seems to smile and continues looking around the yard. 'Merry Christmas Dad,' I say."
"...What could I do? No matter how tired I was, I just didn't want to miss it....We sang Christmas carols, lit the candles on the tree, and watched Christopher and Lauren in their pajamas bounce on the bed in the candlelight until they settled enough to open gifts."
Bio: D.J. ST. AMANT, originally a Canadian, now lives in Southern California, where he enjoys living it up-good food, fine wine, and armagnac with friends and loved ones. He also writes novels, short stories, and poetry.
