The delightful Erin Krakow from Hallmark’s When Calls the Heart TV series stars as a perfect Miranda. Niall Matter made the character of Ian come alive and Wendie Malick plays a wonderfully convincing Margaret.

Those of you who have followed me for awhile know that I thought the Christy Miller series would be the books that would go into film production one day. It was the best sort of surprise to see the dream come true first with the production of Finding Father Christmas.

The whole journey for this Christmas movie took almost five years so you can imagine how excited I was when when my agent and I were invited to go on set for part of the filming. We loved getting to know the actors and spending time with the director and the producers, whom we adore.

I took a lot of photos and will be posting them on social media and on my blog between now and December so check in here often for behind the scene photos and stories.

For fun, I took a little Father Christmas ornament with me on set and took a picture of him on one of the Christmas trees. The cast and crew entered into the “Who Can Find Father Christmas” game and soon the ornament was popping up all over the set. He even ended up getting his own cameo in the film! I think I’ll have to set up a “Find Father Christmas” game with you so you’ll know where to spot him when you watch the movie!

The script for the Hallmark Christmas movie was created by combining the stories found in my first two Christmas novellas, Finding Father Christmas and Engaging Father Christmas. I’m thrilled that the publisher is now re-releasing the two stories in a new 2-in-1 edition at a great price. The third novella in the Father Christmas Collection, Kissing Father Christmas, is a sweet love story about Anna and has overlapping characters from the first two novellas. Kissing Father Christmas releases this October, 2016.


Best of all both books are now available for pre-sale in the Robin’s Nest BookShop. The first 200 Beautiful Readers who purchase both books will receive a special, autographed Father Christmas ornament.

    Hi Robin!!
    When I found out that Finding Father Christmas was going to be a movie and that Erin Kraków was going to be in it, I was ecstatic!! I am not exaggerating at all! I’ve been trying to find Embracing Father Christmas for the past two years now, so you can imagine my excitement when I read that it is being published again. And to find out that there’s a Kissing Father Christmas? Well, guess who’s getting an early Christmas present from herself, lol!! Thanks, Robin, for being so faithful to the call God has placed on your life and to your readers!! We love you!!
