About the Author

Gianna Marie was a happy, healthy five year old when her world was suddenly filled with doubt and despair. Happy to send her annual letter to Santa, when she heard some news that the whole Santa story was a fake, the deception was too much for her to handle. She became confused and withdrawn and felt that her parents had lied to her. When her grandfather stepped in to tell the truth about Santa, her spirit was not only renewed but at a very young age she gained tremendous insight into the true meaning of Christmas. At the date of publishing of this book, Gianna is a high school teenager in Advanced Honors classes. She has a great outlook on life and a firm plan for college and the future. Each year since she was not quite six years old, she has portrayed "Jingles the Elf" to share her Christmas Spirit with children of all ages. Her promise, made to Santa himself, was to continue a tradition that started as a healing process and will last a lifetime. Her co-authoring of this book, at the age of five, was a true inspiration. Although it was written over ten years ago, it wasn't until this past Christmas that they decided to make it official.
