When I was asked to interview Cory Evans, the hero of A Holiday Christmas, I was really excited because I had a feeling there was more to him than what he revealed to me when I was writing his story. And boy was I right.

HL: What do you like to do to relax?
CE: That depends…is my mom going to read this interview?
HL: Why does that matter?

There’s magic in the air this Christmas Season in Holiday.
