Twelve Books for Christmas: Day Nine ~ A Fantasy Christmas: Halfling by Cindy Bennet

Banished from the South Pole, Kara tries to carve out a new life among the elves of the North. It’s not easy with a secret to protect—a secret she's cursed with by the unusual circumstances of her heritage: half-elf, half-fairy. In the North, she’s assigned to work with Seb on a special project. He's the most gorgeous elf she’s ever seen - and the orneriest.

As if being banished wasn’t punishment enough.

Seb introduces her to Trystin, a fairy from the nearby fairy forest. Trystin discerns her secret right away and promises to teach her how to use the powers given to her by the very thing she’s fighting to keep hidden.

Bennett is the YA author of several books. She lives in Utah with her two daughters. Both of her sons have married, giving her two more daughters (in-law). She loves gooey cookies, dark chocolate, and cheese popcorn. She hates housework and cooking, and has no plans to become a domestic goddess. She occasionally co-hosts a geek podcast with her son, called Geek Revolution Radio. Her favorite pastime - other than writing - is riding her Harley.

Konstanz: If you were to give your Main Character a Christmas present, what would it be?

Cindy: Kara: Her own reindeer and sleigh.

Konstanz: Do you prefer to be surrounded by Snow or Sun on Christmas?

Cindy: Snow!

Konstanz: What is the craziest, funnest, best, or worst present you've ever received for Christmas?

Cindy: Gingerbread cookie.

Konstanz: What do you want most of all for Christmas this year?
