About the Book

Seven new Christmas tales for grownups.

Short stories of adults who due to cynicism, commercialism and isolationism find themselves detached from the Spirit of Christmas. They’ve got the ‘Holiday Blues.’

Have they been expecting too much from the Christmas Holidays, or too little?

And what does it take to reconnect with the spirit of the season, and discover its true meaning? It can happen in response to a simple heartfelt gesture. Sometimes it takes being forced firmly but kindly out of our comfort zone. At other times it’s an alarming event that shakes us out of our slumber. Occasionally it requires the intercession of non-worldly guides.

Join the characters of Christmas Wishes as they shrug off the darkness that envelopes those who have, for a variety of reasons, armored themselves against the true Spirit of Christmas, and share their joy when they are once again bathed in its light.

Welcome Christmas Wishes into your home to take its place in your family’s Holiday traditions. The simple message will brighten your soul, and share its joy, not just in the Yuletide, but all the months of the year.

With seven new photographs by Jesmoe Q. Feesh.

About the Author

His father is generally considered to be Claude Hooper, an itinerant banjo player. Claude disappeared after depositing his seed into Eunice Moore of Robinsville, Tennessee. A few months before the author’s birth Eunice was permanently blinded in the famous Sorghum Syrup Explosion of 1958. Joseph started training as a storyteller by keeping his visually impaired mother informed of the day’s events. Gradually he began weaving fiction into the stories, which took on suspenseful, sometimes frightening overtones. At the age of sixteen, his mother now dead from severe anxiety, Joseph began reading his original poetry at Tractor Pull competitions throughout the Deep South. His first published work, “...And the Mud Turned Black” (out of print), is a collection of these poems.
