About the Author

Larry Enright is the son of Irish immigrants, born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He attended Kenyon College and graduated Magna Cum Laude with an A.B. in Philosophy and minors in Art and English Literature.

After college, he moved to the East Coast where he filled his life with many careers including teacher, professional musician, computer programmer, and researcher. He wrote his first novel in 1980, and penned two more "bookend efforts" before "Four Years from Home," was published in 2010. That book went on to be a top 100 U.S. Kindle best seller for three consecutive weeks and a category best seller for nine months. He has since written "A King in a Court of Fools," a serial novel read by thousands online weekly for over a year until published in book form, "Buffalo Nickel Christmas," a Christmas fantasy set in the 1950s, "12|21|12," a short piece of alternative science fiction, "A Cape May Diamond," a story of mystery and redemption, "The Adventures of Walter Stickle," a 3-book series of science fiction about an ordinary man with extraordinary adventures, and "The Blacker Death," a thriller that pits one man against the mob and a deadly disease. 

Larry lives on a small farm with his wife and two sons where he writes full time and supports other authors in their efforts to fulfill their dreams.

When reading this book,those of us who have reached a certain age will feel the wash of warm nostalgia for Christmases of our childhood. We'll remember sights, and scents as the great day approaches--all too slowly. Larry Enright has masterfully captured the feelings of children at Christmastime in days gone by.

Enright could've left the book as a period piece, a remembrance of home scenes with the new Sears Roebuck catalog "Wish Book"; waiting for the monster snow storm to seal kids in, away from school and Dad home from work. He could've simply left us with the enchantment of huge department stores in the Christmas shopping season with their displays and of course, Santa. In doing so, he would've had a good book.

Instead, he chose to weave a new, special bit of magic. He has created a fresh myth. A new world for children and adults with people and creatures we've never met. "Buffalo Nickel Christmas" deserves to take its place on bookshelves and in the dreams of all who love Christmas. Highly recommended for all!

With stories like this one, I can see why Larry Enright has a bestseller on his hands. Buffalo Nickel Christmas is such an approachable, easy-to-know book, the kind that gets into your heart even if you're like me. That is, you're not sure you have one. What I loved here was the ambling way he brings readers into the hopes and lives of the gang of kids and their parents. Though younger than the characters in Buffalo Nickel Christmas by a generation or so, the story's resonance remains strong, even for me. Enright's power as a writer is in yanking me back into similar memories of my own childhood Christmases. It's like therapeutic time travel for the soul. And what a glorious Christmas gift that is!

Christmas isn't about presents in this fun and feel-good tale. With echoes of 'Wizard Of Oz' and a hint of 'Harry Potter', we're taken on a journey of hope and adventure as Harry Ryan chooses to believe in magic, and in doing so saves all that is perfect and wonderful about the season.

This is a story that young and old can embrace, and if you've ever dreamed of or truly experienced a Christmas Miracle, this tale is for you.

Great little Christmas read! A fun and magical Four Years From Home Spinoff told from young Harry Ryan's POV. This one should be one your shelf and featured during the season... Drink with hot chocolate topped with marshmallows! A great addition to the Ryan legacy!

A young man remembers the Christmas he turned 6. A huge snowstorm, brothers and sisters making a snow castle (as well as telling Dad what they want from the Sears Gift Book), a trip to a department store's 'Christmas Village', a mysterious stranger, and more combine to bring the protagonist (Harry) face-to-face with . . . Santa Claus?
This book started off well (set in 1956) and I enjoyed getting to know Harry and his family. However, the middle of the book is where it really took off for me. Pure magic! I also loved the way the author reminded us that the important things at Christmastime aren't the things we give . . . but the memories we make.
