About the Author:
Who would have thought a California girl would grow up to love the magic of a snowy Christmas and the mysteries of the North Pole. The scent of pine needles fills the air as the sleepy eyes of six small children begin to open. Then it begins “The Great Race.” Who will get to the presents first? The sounds of wrapping paper tearing, children laughing, and toys strewn everywhere. This was Christmas Day for Candace Hall’s family in Los Angeles, California. There were no snowflakes and Santa led a parade down Hollywood Blvd. As time passed and growing up continued, sunny California was left behind, Texas became home and there was snow at Christmas.
There were no empty hours in a day to begin writing, even though Candace’s pen had touched a page or two, no real stories began to unfold until her health forced me to retire. It was then that real life experiences and her love of Christmas and a special black kitten turned into “A Christmas Secret.”
Writing has now become Candace’s passion and with the help of the good Lord there will be more stories and adventures to be shared.
Candace’s latest book is a delightful holiday children’s book called A Christmas Secret.

Shhh…..the reindeer have a secret! Do you promise not to tell? It’s a kitten! But they can’t tell Santa. You see….anyone not born in the North Pole can’t live there. So, what are the reindeer supposed to do with this sweet, lovable kitten named O’Malley??? They can’t leave him. But they can’t take him home to Santa. They decide to keep him a secret, when they discover he went with them back to the Pole!
It was so much fun reading this! I felt like a child again and really got lost among the pages. Candace Hall does a magnificent job at creating the reindeer and using O’Malley’s lovable kitten self to pull the readers and youngsters to the heart of the story.
I highly recommend this fantastic new children’s book for everyone, young and old. You’ll feel like a kid again, hiding something from mom and dad when you know you’re not supposed to have it. Mixed in with the fun is a wonderfully written message of the true meaning of Christmas. A 5 Book worthy new Christmas tradition for every family!
