Interview With Author Bruce Kusch

1. What inspired you to write this book?

This book is based on a true personal experience when I was just a small child. I’ve been telling the story for years and friends have regularly encouraged me to publish the story. Thus, the book. 

2. What exactly is it about and who is it written for?

The book tells a rather remarkable and miraculous story of everything under our Christmas tree being stolen just days before Christmas. Later in the evening nearly everything stolen was returned with just a few exceptions. The message in the book can inspire individuals and families to do better and be better. 

3. What do you hope readers will get out of reading your book?

The desire to be kind and forgiven. 

4. How did you decide on your book’s title and cover design?

Hope was lost when everything was stolen. Christmas was found again when nearly everything was returned. I used the illustration services of the publisher for all of the illustrations. 

5. What advice or words of wisdom do you have for fellow writers – other than run!?

Conquer your fears. Set a goal for the number of pages you will write each day. 

6. What trends in the book world do you see -- and where do you think the book publishing industry is heading?

I am not qualified to answer that question. 

7. Were there experiences in your personal life or career that came in handy when writing this book?

Yes. As stated, this was a personal experience..  

8. How would you describe your writing style? Which writers or books is your writing similar to?


9. What challenges did you overcome in the writing of this book?

Just getting started. 

10. If people can buy or read one book this week or month, why should it be yours?

If you are looking for a quick read and feel-good story, this is it.
