About the Author:
Kristen Hotaling was born in Willsboro, New York. A graduate of Plattsburgh State
University, she has always been a business minded individual. After college, she 
became a proprietary business owner of her own bait & tackle shop, following in 
her father’s footsteps. Besides her strong business background, Kristen has always 
had a creative side. Over the years Kristen never hesitated to express herself through 
works of art; such as painting, acting, and writing. The Lonely Christmas Tree is Ms. 
Hotaling’s first novel.

Book Summary: 
The Lonely Christmas Tree is a story about Bruce, a lonely (Spruce) Tree left in the Hotaling's 
Christmas Tree lot on Christmas Eve. Bruce became the saddest Christmas tree around and thought that he would have
to spend Christmas alone. Out of the corner of his eye, he noticed some movement, maybe one last family shopping for
a tree, but no it was just some woodland animals roaming about the Christmas tree lot. Bruce did not think anything of 
the animals until one of the animals; Hammy the chipmunk, came up to Bruce and asked what was wrong. Bruce told
him that he was all alone for Christmas. Hammy than ran off, gathered the rest of his friends, and came back to let Bruce
 know that he would not be left alone on Christmas. This is when all the animals went on a scavenger hunt to find all the
 items they could to help decorate Bruce. All returned with great ideas to decorate Bruce; strings of popcorn, cookie ornaments, 
and left over Christmas lights and even a star. By the time they are finished decorating Bruce, he was the best-looking Christmas 
Tree in the entire town. Bruce was the happiest tree around and was spending it with some great friends on Christmas.
