    I am rather partial to Hallmark movies that are based on books, and if given the opportunity to interview and highlight the author who wrote the book that inspired the movie, I leap at the chance. In the case of Christmas In Angel Falls, I had heard of Melissa de la Cruz mainly because Rachel Boston had mentioned her in the […]

    I remember reading about A Bramble House Christmas becoming a Hallmark Christmas movie, and at the time, I was so excited for the author, C.J. Carmichael. I knew nothing of her nor her works, but the premise and the title just seemed like a perfect fit with this beloved network. Later, when I discovered that David Haydn-Jones and Autumn Reeser were […]

    Yet another Countdown to Christmas movie is headed our way November 19th, and it is entitled A Gift To Remember. It has become a popular trend for Hallmark to find quality books already in print and adapt them for their network, and that is exactly what happened with this particular film. I was honored to be able to conduct a quick […]

    I had the supreme joy and honor of interviewing author Robin Jones Gunn before the premiere of her book turned movie last year entitled Finding Father Christmas, and I was immensely excited when I learned there was going to be a sequel this year. In spite of Robin’s incredibly busy personal and professional life, she took a few moments recently to […]

    In case you were unaware, Hallmark’s annual Countdown to Christmas programming is in full swing on its popular Hallmark Channel. In fact, they started showing Christmas movies before Halloween. Due to my unapologetic Hallmark addiction, I typically am well aware of all the programming, but I admit that my venture to Vancouver, BC for the third Hearties Family Reunion a […]

    If you are like me, Hallmark’s “Countdown to Christmas” is a tradition that is almost required viewing in my household. Last year, Candace Cameron-Bure starred in Journey Back to Christmas, one of the network’s most popular and most-watched films. My mother is not a fan of time travel tales, but this wasn’t your typical time travel story. It is a sweet […]

    As a writer myself, I am aware of the fact that I am ostensibly drawn towards authors, and in recent years, Hallmark has increasingly adapted a wide variety of books into very successful movie franchises. In the case of Dana Cameron, her Emma Fielding mystery series is the newest mystery film heading to the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries Network this upcoming weekend (June […]

    Romance author Teri Wilson first came to my attention when the highly anticipated Hallmark film Unleashing Mr. Darcy premiered in January of 2016. I remember thinking, “This author is super involved with this movie. Every time I even mention her film or ask a question, she is there to respond. I don’t even have to tag her!” It wasn’t long before her […]

    Because I closely follow Hallmark actors, writers, producers, directors, etc., I do my best to apprise myself of the “new kids in town.” When I discovered that Ella Fairlie wrote the book upon which The Christmas List was based, I knew I had to contact her at once for an interview. Previously, I was not even aware of her existence, but Ella […]
