About the author:
Ryan Swanson first became interested in writing while playing hockey for the Green Bay Gamblers of the USHL where he spent most of his time away from the rink limping and journaling about life on the junior hockey circuit. While pursuing degrees in English and Religion Studies at Macalester College, Ryan discovered screenwriting. For more than a decade, he has worked as a screenwriter, story editor, and script consultant alongside some of Hollywood's most acclaimed and prolific filmmakers. Additionally, Ryan is an uncle, a godfather, and a youth hockey coach. He and his fiancée, Lauren, reside in what Forbes Magazine calls the hippest place in America--L.A.'s Silverlake neighborhood (which, he thinks, automatically makes it less hip than wherever you are reading this).

The Santa Talk
How I Learned to Talk to Kids About Santa
"Mom? Dad? Is Santa real?"
Odds are you'll have to answer this question-and soon-if you're a parent of one of the roughly 32 million American kids between the ages of four and ten. Your answer will likely form a lifelong memory for them. Hey, no pressure, though...
The Santa Talk reveals simple principles and time-tested tips every parent can use to effectively clarify your tradition of Santa Claus and lovingly pass along what matters most about the holidays:
o the key questions you and your partner will have to answer first;
o what to expect children of various ages to understand;
o how to handle discoveries under less-than-ideal or awkward circumstances;
o why everything is going to be okay.
No matter what your celebration looks like-even if you don't celebrate with Santa Claus at all-there's a story that will speak to you and to your circumstances in The Santa Talk.
