Californian Kristy Haile earned an Associate’s degree in Dental Hygiene from Northeastern University in Boston and then worked as a hygienist in Massachusetts and California. She moved from her hometown of Turlock, CA to Los Angeles, where her two children became actors on TV (The Office, Dexter, Criminal Minds, Desperate Housewives), movies (Chihuahua: The Movie) and in commercials.
At age 2 1/2, son Ty came to believe he was Santa Claus. Haile kept a journal of the funny and unusual things her son said and did over the next two years, as well as of people’s reactions to his self-identification as the “new real Santa Claus.” That journal was the basis for this book.
Kristy wants all to experience this fun and imaginative story, she and many have come to love.
