It’s Christmas, and the season of holly, Christmas trees, and goodwill is drifting on air in merry holiday wishes. Romantic suspense and paranormal author Lynn Crandall and contemporary author Lainee Cole present in their own way two stories of love in Captured by Christmas. However it finds you—under a Christmas tree or drifted in snow in a backwoods cabin—the spirit of the season will wrap you in love.
In Snowbound, Lynn Crandall lets readers check in on favorite Fierce Hearts series were-lynx characters Kennedy Mitchell and Asher Monroe as they uncover the identity of the creature scaring the humans in Octavia, a small rural community in northern Michigan. Plans for an intimate getaway and family-style holiday are crumbling as the snow piles higher and Kennedy and Asher find themselves snowbound with a killer outside their door.
In The Mistletoe Effect, Christmas is second-grade teacher Tess McCall’s least favorite holiday, but she’s doing her best not to let it show. Learning he’s a father to seven-year-old Holly makes Alex Randle anxious about the upcoming holidays. When Tess’s class starts reading to shelter dogs, Holly and the antics of shelter dog Mistletoe lead them all to rediscover the magic of Christmas.

I started spinning stories as a child when I tried to entertain my younger sister at night when we were supposed to be going to sleep. In the dark, my stories typically took on a scary or paranormal element — didn’t do much to put us to sleep. Today, I hope my stories still fail to put readers to sleep, but rather take them on a journey. That’s what I’ve been on since I decided to make writing my focus. As a reporter and magazine feature writer, I truly enjoy learning as I work on stories. As a romance writer, I enjoy doing the research and following an evolving story of my characters. I’m still learning as I go.
One of my most favorite sentences from reviewers or readers is that the characters were so real these people began wondering if their neighbors were were-lynxes.
I like that sentiment because it is what I want to create, not only believable characters but also ones who offer readers an opportunity to see the world differently. I write characters who possess paranormal abilities and gifts, but are integrated into everyday life. Humans are so complex and what we know about life is so small compared to possibilities. I can imagine a time when those with psychic abilities are not rare individuals because humans have tapped into those unimaginable possibilities and we’ve grown to be more.
Honestly, for all we know, paranormal individuals may presently walk among us, just as the members of the colony do in my books. That doesn’t scare me, it excites me.
If you were a paranormal, what would you be? Would you have a special ability?
