One thought on “Christmas Story Competition


    I have just finished updating my original Christmas story “The Emissary.” This animated and award winning story was written in 1997 and has been viewed by more than 7 million people from 169 countries. It is intended as entertainment for any age. If you want to hear the music in the story, you will need to view with Internet Explorer. http///
