Leenna writes cross-genre suspense, romance and dabbles in sci-fi/fantasy. Her short stories have appeared in 'The Mad Scientist Journal', 'SciPhi Journal' and 'Cosmic Roots and Eldritch Shores'. Her first attempt at a novel was 'No Distance To Run', self-published along with most of her other work. Her episodic sci-fi fantasy series, Quest For The Wholly Pale, appears exclusively on Fictionite and Fiction Vortex.
She blogs on www.leennanaidoo.wordpress.com and www.leennascreativebox.wordpress.com (follow for your monthly tarotscope here).
Leenna’s most unnerving experiences include: looking a red kangaroo in the eye, flipping pancakes for the first time ever in front of her class, interviewing Alan Dean Foster for her blog, and teaching a hellhound how to share a biscuit. Sometimes she writes about these and other less nerve-wracking things; sometimes she doesn’t.

I really enjoyed this short story. A nice refreshing, yet still festive, take on the Christmas wish list/letter. P's letters and Santa's replies quite nicely give an insight into their lives, with a nice mix of humour/wit along the way.
The modern take on how consumerism and peoples expectations has made his job harder, is a nice underlying message within the story.
For me, the piece could have quite happily finished with P's reply back to Santa. B's letter i found a little to obvious and could have done with more suggestion and mystery about him.
As a whole, i loved the concept about the piece, and would love to read more! A nice 4/5 from me.
