About the Author

Kate Klimo has always believed that Santa Claus is the ultimate and, for many of us, the very first fantasy hero in our lives. When she was a child, she always stayed up late the night before Christmas to see if she could hear the ringing of sleigh bells or the rumble of reindeer's hooves on the roof. To this day, she thinks there is something about Christmas that's just a little bit more magical than any other day of the year.

Kate lives in New Paltz, New York, with her husband and horses. For more information, visit and
