White Christmas???

I wonder if north central Texas will have a white Christmas this year. You just never know about Texas weather. When I first moved from Florida to Texas back in the early eighties my children and I had never see snow. We couldn’t wait. We got flurries the day after Thanksgiving and that was it for that year. Next year we had snow and even an ice storm thrown in for good measure.

Now thirty some years later, we still have no idea what the weather’s going to do. Last week it was nearly 80 degrees several days, then this morning it was 29. Brrrr.

Our family will be having our big Christmas shindig on Saturday the 21st. That’s the only day everybody can be off at the same time. But as usual, we have no idea whether we’ll be wearing gloves, hats and heavy coats or shorts and t-shirts.

I finished my Christmas shopping last weekend so I can relax now. I’m even helping my customers finish up their shopping. I have a little booth set up at my office where they can buy copies of all of my books for their friends and families. Wonderful gift idea, if I do say so myself. I hope you all have the merriest Christmas ever and a very happy new year!

Santa with Elsie's Books
Rudalph “Santa” Rulgham won an autographed copy of my entire collection of books during October’s drawing.

What are you reading this holiday season?

IMG_4038This holiday season is perfect for catching up on things you simply haven’t had the time to do all year long. Like reading for instance. When is the last time you enjoyed a collection of thrillers that left you on the edge of your seat til the very end? That long, huh? This holiday season treat yourself. Available on Amazon in soft covers and ebooks.


“I discovered your books through my dad, and fell in love with Josh in the Dreams Are Forever series. You’ve become my favorite author and I’ll never forget actually getting to meet you when you came to Arkansas to promote your books. I haven’t read The Color of Thunder yet, but I can’t wait to dig in. Love you Elsie!” -JAIA

‘“Another amazing story by Elsie Varn Harrell!  What a great reminder of the gift available to all of us – if only we choose to accept it.”   V. Green



Published by Elsie Varn Harrell

When Elsie decided to try her hand at writing a novel, Fire Light Fire Bright was born followed by Dreams Never Lie -which quickly became her publisher’s first Best-Selling Series. The Color of Thunder was published right between Dreams are Forever and Shattered Dreams. Elsie was born in Brooksville, Florida. Some of her fondest memories were swimming at Pine Island in the nearby Gulf of Mexico. Weeki Wachee Springs is where she learned to swim. In the early 1980’s, Elsie and her three children, Katie, Lisa G. and Jes moved to Texas. Shortly after moving to North Central Texas, Elsie met her husband Ronnie on a blind date and after a whirlwind courtship, they married in April 1987. After 34 years, they're still going strong.
