#1 Most Watched and Highest Rated film for 2016.

Thank YOU, dear Beautiful Readers.

Your support made this film successful and paved the way to the sequel, Engaging Father Christmas.

I have a few important viewing dates for you but first I want to tell you about a special moment on set. Wendie Malick was running lines before they started filming inside Rose Cottage. She turned toward where I was standing in the background, pointed at me and said, “Robin, I love the way you write.”

Photo Jun 20, 5 23 44 PM There were at least two dozen crew members busy doing their jobs in the crowded space. They took turns glancing at me curiously because they had no idea who I was or why Janet and I were there getting in their way. The director spoke up and said, “Treat her like royalty. She’s the reason we all have jobs.”

I saw once again how important it is to tell good stories. It’s essential that writers do the hard work and write credible tales of love and reconciliation and redemption. This art form of writing stories, scripting them and seeing actors bring the truths to life is essential in our culture.

Books and movies are mirrors. When we look into them and see a reflection of what has gone awry in our own lives we find courage to extend grace, right a wrong and chose to love.
