A Beautiful Christmas Story in An Angel Among Us!

Do you know the true meaning of Christmas? I wrote a story about just that. This story is contained in my short story collection of 15 multi-genres tales. The story is called The True Meaning of Christmas.

I began writing this short story many years ago around the holidays. It is a touching, emotional and heartfelt read that I’m sure will bring you to tears. I pray that every child will experience the joy and blessings of Christmas as in my story.

There are 15 short stories in this book. The first story is dedicated, as is the title, to a high school friend, Anne Benedetto, who passed in 2017 from breast cancer. She was truly an angel among us! She is dearly missed by all who knew her. She touched many with her pure heart, kindness and lovely sense of humor. May she rest in peace.

JEMSBOOKS NOVELS FOR 18+ are available on Amazon as paperbacks and ebooks (Kindle) and Barnes & Noble as paperbacks.


A collection of short stories that covers several genres including romance, grief/loss, mystery, suspense, sci-fi, fantasy and paranormal. This book is dedicated to a courageous friend who passed this year. The first story is specially created for her and is the inspiration for the title of this book.

Each story in this book has a surprise ending that will grip you and leave you wanting more. I have had readers beg for more to a particular story because they wanted to know what would happen next. Maybe one day I will continue some of those stories. I would love to hear how you feel about them and if you want more too.

Here are what some of my readers said about An Angel Among us.

Is there someone on your Christmas list who love short stories? Well, this is the book for them. Each story is in a different genre and provides a surprise ending. If you like the unexpected then this book is perfect for you!

When you read the last story in the book, The True Meaning of Christmas, you will feel the joy of Christmas and your spirits will be uplifted. Keep some tissues handy. You are sure to need them.

Thank you for stopping by to read this post. Please come back again real soon. I wish you all the blessings and joy of the Christmas season. Take care.

Blessings & Hugs! Stay Safe, Stay Well and God Bless!
