And a bit about the Author Lonnie:
My name is Lonnie Brinkley. I live in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. For a little more than seven years, this has also been the place where I own and operate Big Bear Candles and Gifts. By trade, I have been a Candle Artist for 29 years. My specialty is hand-carving of candles, producing intricate designs, in various styles and colors. In my shop, I demonstrate and sell my artwork, and also the art works of others.
I have 2 daughters, Tiffany and Stefanie. Trust me, those two ladies keep me in line. I cannot get away with anything. My first thoughts of this book started many years ago. My ideas were left dormant until February of 2007, when Tiffany casually inquired and reminded me to (finally) follow through with writing this book. Tiffany and Stefanie have both been a help and great encouragement to me with this project.
As I began to write what would seem to be just a book for my (hopefully) grandchildren some day, has turned into much more than what I expected. So now I can tell you that I have enjoyed writing “I BELIEVE,” for all the children of the world - as I have much to share with them about Santa Claus.
My goal for this novel is to see a real movie being made from it. Why not? Meanwhile. in the months ahead, I plan to start on book number 3, “Mrs. Claus takes on a Mission” I hope you have just as much fun reading this story, as I have had writing it. Customers that have come into my shop that I have already shared some of my book with, they have responded with “I Believe” too. If you’re one of those customers that are reading this now, I want to thank you again now, for that opportunity.
