Hear Mark A. Pritchard Read from “Billy Christmas”
Pritchard’s debut novel is a magical treat in the grand tradition of children’s Christmas tales – he’s a natural storyteller, whose characters will engage and delight even the most hard-hearted scrooge. — Kate Whiting, Worcester Book Reviews
“We have things to discuss” the Christmas tree says to Billy in the dark of the living room after bemoaning its fairy light binds.

Hear Mark A. Pritchard dramatize this important scene from his novel, Billy Christmas.
