Beautiful Christmas Story

This story spans three centuries and unfolds in surprising and inspiring ways. It has a very classic feel with the prerequisite wonder and magic of a good Christmas story.

The main character is challenged and fails, but then is redeemed through bravery and friendship. I love the overarching message that when you believe in yourself and keep trying, you will overcome. You will not regret reading this book.

Christmas Coal

"Such a great life lesson in a single piece of coal!


The kids loved it, and I hope it will stick with them each year we read it!"

The Eye of the Nagual

"P.E. Pence bolsters his novel with snippets of Mexican history as well as scraps of the Spanish language thrown in for good measure. Both enrich the story, lending a cultural appeal that allows the fictional side to take off into new heights."

The Heart of the Nagual

"Great read, creative story with plenty of action. Keeps you from putting it down. Would like to know more of the history behind the legends. Can't wait for book three."
