And because I know from working with people in the social work field for twenty years that not everyone is blessed with a wonderful family, or even a warm place to lay their head at night, I’m donating fifty percent of my profit for this eBook from November 16th through December 30th to the Union Gospel Mission of Tarrant County. UGM was always THE best charitable organization I worked with over the years (and I worked with several good ones). They always went above and beyond when trying to help one of my clients. So I’m hoping to be able to give a little back. I hope you’ll help me by buying the short story, sharing this post with your friends and loved ones, and on social media. I really appreciate your assistance in giving back. (If you want to donate directly to UGM, just click on this link!)

Contemporary Holiday Short Story

50% of royalties earned for THE GIFT from November 16th until December 30th will go to the Union Gospel Mission of Tarrant County.


Sometimes, the best gifts are unexpected…

When workaholic Robert Chalmer’s wife leaves to take care of her sick mother for two weeks, he is left with all the responsibility… including his seven-year-old daughter. With Christmas fast approaching, Robert must find a way to reconnect with what is most important in his life, or risk losing it forever.


THE GIFT is a 7300 word heart-warming short story set in Fort Worth, TX about family, love, and second chances.

“…quite touching, in a very traditional family orientated way. Humorous and tearful…”  ~~ Amazon Reviewer

“A sweet Christmas read that reminds us of what is most important, at Christmas or at any time of the year.” ~~ Amazon Reviewer

“… Ms. Hopkins’ story is the perfect way to kick off the season and get into the Christmas spirit. I found The Gift to be a refreshing and delightful reminder of what Christmas is all about…family. Her writing style is easy to follow and engaging. I highly recommend The Gift. It will make you feel good.” ~~Amazon Reviewer
