I hope you all have a wonderful time celebrating this magical, beautiful season. As I wrap up 2009 and begin to prepare and look ahead to 2010, I remember all the amazing things that happened in my life this year. My husband and I were blessed with our new, adopted baby girl, McKenna Rain. She has been a joy in our hearts since joining our family on 7-13 and her big brother Carson Reyburn (3) loves his baby sis. The same day that McKenna came home from the hospital to live with her family (7-21) was the day my first children's book "Corinna the Christmas Elf" was released. I've been extremely busy with baby, toddler, husband and finding every spare moment to work on my latest novel/memoir as well as attending book signing and reading events. My book signings have been fun, eventful and interesting. I am extremely pleased at the reception of my first children's book and excited about future projects. Some of my favorite events include a few different Borders stores, Sierra Madre Books, Eat.Play.Grow. in Long Beach, Averyboo Arts in Long Beach and Roy Robbins Gifts in Long Beach. I continue to feel extremely blessed in my life, as well as motivated and challenged with my writing projects. I 2010 brings us all happiness, health, success at our endeavors, new creative ideas and lots of time with our loved ones. Cheers!

NEWS FLASH: I have just been given the "go-ahead" to write a book related to Old Hollywood (the real story is still Top Secret) for a neighbor/friend of mine... this is amazing news, because this story is just begging to get out to all of you who love old movies based on the history and true, original movie stars from the Old Hollywood era... you know who you are! I am honored and thrilled to be part of this new project, which will probably move to the top of my priority "work list" and for good reason (you will know the reason once you read the story).

I've been inching along with my first fiction novel for several years now. This story is based on an amazing, perspective-changing adventure in the West Indies... and since publishing my children's book recently titled Corinna the Christmas Elf, I have been greatly inspired to dust off my unfinished manuscript and get grooving back into my novel project. I guarantee you will be entertained and hopefully touched in some way by my story, once it is complete and a publisher is found. I'll keep the story and title secret for now, but will give you little glimpses along the journey... so here I go! Stay with me now...

There will be Corinna the Christmas Elf dolls and figurines available for the holiday season... they will make great stocking stuffers or gifts along with the book Corinna the Christmas Elf. Once I have some photos to show you of these items (they are currently being developed and in production) I will share them with you! Stay tuned for more info... and thanks for your support!

Corinna the Christmas Elf
Suzanne Sumner Ferry
Corinna the Christmas Elf has special toy-making skills. Santa, who admires her work very much, has just promoted Corinna to Senior Elf Factory Manager in his workshop. But one very cold Friday when a dangerous storm threatens the workshop, Santa's elves fear they won't be able to meet their December deadline. This could be a disaster, and some children around the world may not get their Christmas toys from Santa. Will Corinna be able to fix the problem? Join author Suzanne Sumner Ferry as she takes readers young and old on a sleigh ride through Santa's workshop.
