Roseburg man pens Christmas book

ROSEBURG, Ore. -- A Christmas story 27 years in the making has come to fruition for a Roseburg man.

That story can now be read by anyone, as it is now in the form of a new book.

Author Ross Adams of Roseburg says he has a simple goal in mind for the book. "Turn off the TV, the computers and the video games, and you just sit down and read a good, wholesome Christmas story that's filled with good, positive moral values and takes you back to the true meaning of Christmas."

Adams says after having a family and going into the military he lost his creativity, but was determined to finish what he first came up with in 1986. "We had a lady at our church speak about the dreams that God gave you that you'd given up on, and immediately the book came to my mind," said Adams. "I knew I hadn't written it, I knew he had, so I said I have to do something with that."

His book has sold more than 1,200 copies so far. "I have had so much positive response, it's been just awesome," Adams said.

Adams has another book in mind, but has a goal of selling 5,000 copies of 'A Brandonburg Christmas' first.
