About the Author
Christmas has always been Hilary Hauck’s favorite time of year.
Growing up in the United Kingdom, Christmas meant family gatherings, turkey
and stuffing, crackers, mince pies, charades, and the Queen’s speech
in the afternoon.
According to Hilary, every child should have magic in their life, and
stories enlighten us with the endless ways magic is all around. Why did she
write this story about the wrong kind of magic? Well, because sometimes we
need to feel the wrong kind of something before we know what the right kind
looks and feels like.
Hilary is also the author of From Ashes to Song, inspired the true story of
three Italians who immigrated to Pennsylvania ninety years before she did.
She has written short stories for Like Sunshine After Rain and anthologies
in the Mindful Writers Retreat Series.
She grew up in the UK and has also lived in Italy. She lives on a small
patch of woods in rural Pennsylvania with her husband and a cat with a
penchant for laundry. Visit her at www.hilaryhauck.com.
