Historical/Short Stories/Holiday-Christmas



A handsome knight and true love are the recipe for breaking the evil spell that enslaves Carolennea–all in time for Christmas. THE THREADS OF FATE Ensorcelled and enslaved by her evil uncle, Carolennea has lost her sweet voice and sews the impossibly beautiful clothing he sells in his tailor shop. But this yuletide season will bring a new customer: a handsome knight for whom she will brave her uncle’s wrath—and who in return will help break the spell. Sir Ardin will set free her fingers, her voice…and her heart.



An enjoyable fairy tale short story. Complete with a spell, an evil uncle, a young girl with a wish to be heard and cared for, and handsome knight to save the day. I hurt right along with Caroleannea.  Very engaging from the start. A Christmas story that is sure to warm your heart.




Debra Parmley spreads love, one story at a time. A multi-genre, hybrid author, fascinated by fairy tales and folktales ever since she was young, she has always ended her stories with a happy ever after. Every story she writes turns into a romance. She started out writing gritty western historical romance, always with a damsel in distress, back before self publishing was an option. Her first book, A Desperate Journey, was published in ebook in 2008 and in print in 2009. An Air Force veteran’s wife, she now writes military heroes. Montana Marine, part of Elle James Kindle Worlds Brotherhood Protectors series, is her most recent contemporary military romantic suspense. Debra enjoys travel and her work as a travel consultant gave her the opportunity to visit many countries. Her luggage often carried home folk tales from the countries visited and you will find her travel experiences scattered throughout her books.

Robert Arrow has always preferred the longbow, though he is known to carry a sword now and then. He currently lives close to the Parsonage and has been seen to sojourn among Memphis, New Orleans, Little Rock, Dayton, and Las Cruces. He longs for beautiful traveling partner and is actively accepting applications for the position!
