More About This Title Three


Diz and Clarissa Are Back for the Holidays! It’s Christmas Eve in Baltimore, and you know what that means . . . snow. Lots of it. Join our dynamic duo as they battle the elements, each other, and a Siberian husky named Sadie—all in an ill-fated attempt to host their first holiday party. “Blended Families,” the latest tale of Diz and Clarissa, is a rollicking, yuletide romp that combines Meet the Parents with The Nightmare Before Christmas. Join Diz and Clarissa as they welcome Bernard and Elspeth Wiley, Art and Maggie Gillespie, a priest, an ex-nun, a German widow, a felonious Siberian husky, and a well-dressed Whippet named Maris. Three combines the all-new “Blended Families” with the bonus addition of two previously published Diz and Clarissa stories, “Nevermore!” and "A Christmas Tree Grows in Baltimore." The trilogy is a holiday omnibus not to be missed.


Ann McMan was born in the mountains of Pennsylvania, but spent much of her childhood below sea level in northern Delaware. She now lives halfway between the mountains and the sea in central North Carolina, but dreams of one day relocating to Vermont—where the colder climate might help her keep better.
