    Fern Michaels isn t a person I m not sure she s an entity either since an entity is something with separate existence Fern Michaels is what I DO Me, Mary Ruth Kuczkir Growing up in Hastings, Pennsylvania, I was called Ruth I became Mary when I entered the business world where first names were the order of the day To this day, family and friends call me Dink, a name my father gave me when I was born because according to him I was a dinky little thing weighing in at four and a half pounds However, I answer to Fern since people are comfortable with a name they can pronounce.As they say, the past is prologue I grew up, got a job, got married, had five kids When my youngest went off to Kindergarten, my husband told me to get off my ass and get a job Those were his exact words I didn t know how to do anything except be a wife and mother I was also a voracious reader having cut my teeth on The Bobbsey Twins, Nancy Drew, The Hardy Boys, Cherry Ames and the like The library was a magical place for me It still is to this day Rather than face the outside world with no skills, I decided to write a book For some reason that didn t intimidate me As my husband said at the time, stupid is as stupid does Guess what, I don t have that husband any Guess what else I wrote 99 books, most of them New York Times Best Sellers.Moving right along here Several years ago I left Ballantine Books, parted company with my agent, sold my house in New Jersey that I had lived in all my married life and in 1993 moved to South Carolina I figured if I was going to go through trauma let it be all at one time It was a breeze The kids were all on their own at that point The dump was a 300 year old plantation house that is listed in the National Registry that I remodeled Today it is beyond belief as are the gardens and the equally old Angel Oaks that drip Spanish moss Unfortunately, I could not get my ghost to relocate This ghost has been documented by previous owners Mary Margaret as we call her, is a friendly She is also mischievous It took me two weeks to figure out that she didn t like my coffee cups They would slide off the table or counter or else they d break in the dishwasher I bought red checkered ones All are intact as of this writing She moves pillows from one room to the other and she stops all the clocks in the house at 9 10 in the a.m at least once a week When the Azaleas are in bloom, and only then, I find blooms on my night stand I have this glorious front porch and during the warm months I see my swing moving early in the morning when the air is still and again late in the day She doesn t spook the dogs I always know when she s around because the five of them line up and look like they re at a tennis match As of this writing we re co habiting nicely.Most writers love what they do and I m no exception I love it when I get a germ of an idea and get it down on paper I love breathing life into my characters I love writing about women who persevere and prevail because that s what I had to do to get to this point in time It s another way of saying it doesn t matter where you ve been, what matters is where you re going and how you get there The day I finally prevailed was the day I was inducted into the New Jersey Literary Hall of Fame For me it was an awesome day and there are no words to describe it.I ve been telling stories and scribbling for 37 years I hope I can continue for another 37 years It wasn t easy during some of those years As I said, I had to persevere My old Polish grandmother said something to me when I was little that I never forgot She said when God is good to you, you have to give back For a while I didn t know how to do that When I finally figured it out I set up The Fern Michaels Foundation READ FERN MICHAELS FULL BIOGRAPHY HERE fernmichaels biography

    Review originally posted on Book o Craze, on a Tour organized by Tasty Book Tours This year I hadn t really managed to feel all the Christmas hype, with the season s glow not as apparent to me as previously And, it might sound like it is a bit soon for the Christmas joy to start, but for me that was never the case up until last year All this, before I read Wishes for Christmas, though.Fern Michaels made the holidays seem a little festive this year, through her three short stories included in th [...]

    This book is broken into 3 parts They each tell their own story, but there is some connection of characters along the way I found the first part to be hard to follow, but the 2nd two parts were good and had a nice story to each of them.And the Angels SingThis part of the book isn t exactly easy to follow I think there s a lot of backstory in previous books about a Sisterhood, that probably have you knowing about each character, but in this particular one, they are a group of middle aged to older [...]

    Wishes for Christmas by Fern Michaels is a 2015 Zebra publicationI enjoy Fern Michaels Sisterhood series but because I was very slow in getting started on it, I have only managed to read a handful of them, but do try to squeeze one into my reading schedule whenever I can But the Godmothers series is one I am completely unfamiliar with Sometimes that doesn t really matter, but in this case it presented a bit of a dilemma The story is broken down into three parts, with a connection between stories [...]

    Wishes for Christmas by Fern MichaelsHave enjoyed other works by this author Combination of the sisterhood and godmother series.Three ChristmasesStarts out with the women gathering at Halloween time and they break the rules talking business with eating.The money from Maggie s husbands insurance upon his death she wants to give away to others so they can hear the angels sing She wants to right a wrong from years gone by.Loved hearing of past holidays and ornaments made Love how they get clues to [...]

    A delightful start to your festive reading a collection of three short stories from Fern Michaels They include characters from her book series so you feel you are catching up with friends.In the first book the Sisterhood help Maggie fulfil a Christmas wish to make someone s life better over Christmas This was my favourite of the three stories The second story features The Godmothers where they open their houses for Winter viewings and uncover a mystery and the final story features both.As it is [...]

    This was a good story for Christmas and a quick read It was by no means a dynamic read nor was it something the reader starts and just can t put down, but it was interesting and entertaining for the season.

    This is my first introduction to the Sisterhood and the Godmothers Not sure I like either group of ladies Though they are out to do good for others they seem shallow most of the time and hateful sometimes The stories often jump to endings without giving you all the information to get there Story 1 And the Angels Singe Godmothers help find a beloved teacher so that a former student can bring Christmas joy into her lifeStory 2 Naughty or Nicee Godmothers help to bring Christmas Joy to a single mom [...]

    Truly dreadful Perhaps if I d read the series that these characters are obviously a part of, I d not be so lost, but I don t think that I could force myself to do so Hackneyed writing, no character development at all and the most abrupt and unexplained endings I ve ever seen Thank goodness that this was a gift and I didn t pay good for it.

    The first story with the vigilantes alone was heartwarming, but the other two were definitely not worth the time Too many empty spaces to fill in.

    I don t like to give bad reviews but this one was tough You really need to have read other books in the series to really know the people and what s going on Each of the three stories was drug out forever then abruptly ended with the last chapter and epilogue And I just couldn t relate to any of it Rich, southern grandmothers might like the characters.

    Boring, self righteous and preachy I usually only read romance in the short story form and Christmas ones are my favorites but these were not interesting in the least.

    The Vigilantes The Godmothers the two together.r, love, fun touching in with the happy couples bringing Christmas joy to others

    There are three different Christmas theme stories included in this book I enjoyed the first one And the Angels Sing Naughty or Nice and A Golden Tree I found them to be slow going.

    Good book Stories in the true spirit of Christmas.

    Received via First Reads and Zebra in exchange for an completely unbiased review.Also posted on Silk SerifWishes for Christmas is a set of three Christmas cheer tales written by the prolific author Fern Michaels In each tale we meet the cast of Fern s various groups The Godmothers, The Sisterhood and The Vigilantes.In the first story, And The Angels Sing, Maggie reveals that she once knew a school teacher who was assaulted before disappearing Since the day she found her teacher bruised and batte [...]

    Didn t realize there were three different stories in one book Also didn t realize this is a series and it would have been smart to start at the beginning I think Overall fun, easy, holiday focused reading Felt like the characters represented a very elite portion of our population high socioeconomic, Caucasian peeps not every day people Some light hearted reading for the new year.

    Three stories all centered around the holiday are the backbone of this collection, two that are series specific one from Sisterhood and one from Godmothers and one that mixes the two groups in an unexpected yet thoroughly heartwarming way While I ve not read current titles by Fern Michaels, I m familiar with the women of the Sisterhood, and this was a nice introduction to the characters from the Godmothers series While working nicely without having current information on the women featured in t [...]

    Fern MichaelsAll Ms Michaels fans will love this collection of three short stories about Christmas It will definitely put you in the spirit once you start reading it.And The Angels SingAs we already know the Sisters are known for helping those in need and find the resources and means to make dreams come true This year Maggie Spritzer thinks that they should do something to help someone less fortunate then they are, isn t that what Christmas is all about Maggie has always regretted that when her [...]

    I had really high hopes for Wishes for Christmas as I used to love The Sisterhood series of novels back when they first came out I remember reading the first book in the series on one of my summer vacations, sitting on the twin bed my dad got for me for the summer I still lived in NY at the time and was only in California for the summers I don t know if I just grew out of the series or if they just got so unbelievable that I couldn t read them any I think it might be a combination of both When I [...]

    I really enjoyed this book made up of 3 stories starring the characters form two of Fern Michael s series, The Vigilantes and The Godmothers I liked that she did not have all the nasty bickering in the first two stories that she had in some of her past books.In the first story, Maggie Spitzer wants to make something right from her past With the help of the rest of the group, will they be able to locate her beloved teacher in time to give her a Merry Christmas.In the second story, the ladies are [...]

    Lovely and current and sassy with something a bit special for us Sisterhood fans and for the Godmother fans, as well.Loved story one It seems our Maggie has been holding on to a painful memory of an event she has never told anyone about and she wants to fix it In Sisterhood, style they do.Story two is about the Godmothers and while they are not my favorite of Ms Michaels creation, was also a joy to read and Toots inner dialog with herself always cracks me up These women will get into the messies [...]

    I received this book from in exchange for a review.Wishes For Christmas brings together two of author Fern Michaels beloved series under one cover The first story is a heart warming search for one of Maggie Spitzer s teachers from when she was a young girl Maggie has always felt guilty for not helping her teacher when the young woman was attacked Now, with the help of the Vigilanties, not only will Maggie find the woman who meant so much to her when she was a child, but she will also be able to [...]

    This book was really meant for fans of her previous series Each of the 3 stories involved numerous characters from previous books too numerous in my opinion I m sure it felt like a family reunion to her loyal readers, but to me it was confusing and tedious to have so many characters with so many mentioned backgrounds in a short story And the stories seemed like they were written under a short deadline By that I mean there were many loose ends in each story.didn t anyone proof read these for cont [...]

    Fans of Fern Michaels will love this collection of three short stories about Christmas In Wishes for Christmas, Ms Michaels brings together characters from the Sisterhood book and Grandmothers series in these holiday novels The first short story is from The Sisterhood series, the second short story is from The Godmothers series the third short story combinations characters from these two series This book does not stand alone I enjoyed the storylines however since I have not read many of Ms Micha [...]

    A terrific book comprised of three Christmas stories.The first features the Sisterhood ladies as they set about to try and find a beloved teacher one of them had as a child and to bring a Merry Christmas to her.The second story features the Godmothers in which a couple of them open their homes for Christmas viewing to raise money for their cause and while doing so come across a mystery and a family connection for the grandson of one of them.The third story features two of the Sisterhood ladies a [...]

    There are three stories in this book The first story brings the women and men of the sisterhood together to help one of their sisters Maggie search for and help someone from her past not a revenge motive It is truly a great Christmas themed storyline and was definitely fitting for the season Story two has the women from the Godmother series also celebrating the season The story is not as compelling as the first There is a Christmas theme but it s kind of strange Also there s some sort of connect [...]

    It was not my understanding when reading about this book prior to purchasing that it was 4 different stories They were each very short and none really had the room for character or plot development The first, And the Angels Shall Sing was a spin off of the Vigilante series and worked the best of any of them For anyone who had not read that series though it would have not made very much sense at all Of the four, the last A Golden Tree I thought made the least sense of all The story was very disjo [...]

    In the beginning I had trouble getting into this book, but overall I enjoyed it The beginning story, And the Angels Sing, was a little hard to follow for me I think it had to do with that I was missing information from the series about the characters I also found it hard to relate to these characters Towards the end of this section thought I was into the story and excited to see what would happen In naughty or nice I felt connections to the characters from the start and enjoyed this section of t [...]
