The Story Behind the Story
Have you ever wondered what triggers a story?
It could be a bit of research, a careless remark made by someone or seeing a movie that sets my mind wandering in a different direction than the writer of that work took. For Wagon Train Christmas it was far less romantic. I had three Wagon Train stories done. In the third story, a child dreams of a forever home and a big Christmas celebration. She got the first in that story–Wagon Train Matchmaker. But not the latter. But rather than make that book longer, I decided to do a novella that featured two other characters and Christmas.
I knew Christmas back then was much different than it is today. It wasn’t yet commercialized. It was a simple celebration and mostly religious.
So I began to research. I learned a lot and did my best to incorporate what I had learned.
I hope you enjoy the results in the story.
