Using Stock Imagery to Illustrate the Written Word
Many years ago, I wrote a Christmas story, A Midnight Clear. It remains one of the favorites I've written. I have shared it as a text-based web story and PDF over the years, during the holiday season and it's been well received by those who read it.
