About Me

My Photo
I grew up in San Francisco, but now live in an adobe house on the banks of the Rio Grande with my husband and sons. I think I've drunk so much Land of Enchantment water that some of that ancient magic got into my blood and now spurts out my pencil--I mean ergonomic keyboard. I adore Louisiana, Paris, Bulgaria, England, Scotland, Egypt, and anything old and musty with a secret story to tell. I make way too many cookies when I'm writing or revising a new book - and I've got the best book trailers in the universe - for reals! Check them out here: www.kimberleygriffithslittle.com. Please find me on Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, and Youtube. Awards: Southwest Book Award, Whitney Award for Best Youth Novel, Bank Street College Best Books of 2011, Crystal Kite Finalist, and New Mexico Book Award Finalist.

Short and Sweet (#3 in Our Three Part Holiday Series)
A VERY FROSTY KISS, MISS
Spellbinders Singing 

Here are the Spellbinders at the December 11 Alamosa Bookstore event. We collected many books for the APS Title One Homeless Student Project and had a fun time visiting with other local authors, librarians, and families. Thanks to everyone who helped us sing our holiday spoofs, especially the kids who played bells and other instruments.

Congratulations to GoofyJ who won In the Trees, Honeybees by Lori Mortenson as part of our November giveaway. 

Here is the third and final installment of our song spoof trio. WARNING - There are spoilers, so if you haven't read all the books in the Twilight series, you might want to wait on this song:

EDWARD THE VAMPIRE or A VERY FROST KISS MISS
by Carolee Dean
Inspired by the Twilight Series by Stephanie Meyer
(Sung to the tune of "FROSTY THE SNOWMAN")

Edward the vampire
is a boy without a soul.
He has a sparkly smile
and a GQ style,
but his eyes are black as coal.

"Edward the Vampire
is a school girls dream," they sigh.
But Bella knows
that he's white as snow,
because he's dead inside.

Her heart goes
Thumpity, thump, thump,
Thumpity thump, thump
when he walks the hall.
Thumpity, thump, thump
Thumpity, thump, thump
watch her trip and fall.

Edward the Vampire
is a vegetarian.
Though the Voluri
are much more scary,
they claim to have more fun.

Edward's a Vampire
but Bells is not afraid.
Though she is a clutz,
and her friends are nuts,
Edward loves her away.

Her heart goes
Thumpity, thump, thump,
Thumpity thump, thump
halfway through Book Four.
Then she gets wed,
becomes undead.
Now her heart will beat no more.
