SWFL Author's Novella Becomes Hallmark Christmas Movie

Dec 20, 2017

The holiday season is upon us — and with it, the season for the hopelessly romantic TV movies that have become a tradition for many during the month December. Hallmark Channel’s Christmas movies have become such a sappy staple, the likes of even Netflix has now begun to imitate the art of the feel-good films this season.

One of the many at-home fans of the genre was Gwendolyn Heasley. She’s a Naples author who had the familiar thought of “Hey, I could write this” while watching one — and then, she actually did.

Heasley joins Gulf Coast Live to talk about her novella, “Miss Christmas,” which was turned into a Hallmark movie that premiered on the network this year.
