DR. MEL'S MESSAGE - From my novels to my other projects, no telling what you will read. This is the only place you will get to read about how I developed a screenplay into a novel and what is the driving force. I will talk about many things from films to books to acting to producing. It really will depend on where my mind takes me. I hope you will join me on this journey.
With four prim and proper sisters, a grumpy neighbour, and a talent for stirring trouble, Charlie worries this will be the year he finally ends up on Santa’s Naughty List. He’s tried being good, but none of it matters because his greatest Christmas wish is something even Santa can’t give him: A friend to call his own.
When one of Charlie’s pranks goes wrong, it seems all hope for a happy Christmas is lost. But this is the season of miracles and second chances. A magical quest awaits deep in the forest— a place of glittering snowflakes and fairy tale creatures—but only if Charlie can open his heart.
Will cheeky Charlie find a way to right his wrongs, or will his latest adventure land him on Santa’s naughty list, forever?
