Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and all the greetings of the season, however you celebrate it (or don’t)!

On Life:

Daughters, son, brothers, sisters, nieces, parents, and, of course, the world’s best husband, plus four dogs, four cats, and four horses. What’s not to love? Only week five of being sick. But that’s okay. This too shall pass. It was a lovely holiday anyway, filled with fun and sometimes funny gift giving (see above voodoo doll that our youngest had made for Eric. Ha!).

On Writing:

Writing? What writing? Well, I did stride fearlessly into the world of Facebook ads. And they’re doing well. SWITCHBACK is hitting its stride. Cross fingers and toes for me!

On Wine Women & Writing:

Kim Black, author of The Little Black Dress Mysteries and newest release BARE ESSENTIALS, chats with me about the literary center of the universe and her fashion-forward female James Bond, as we imbibe “Drop Dead Red” cocktails at Bouchercon, the world’s largest crime fiction convention. Join us for the fun!

And because more is always better, here’s a second episode: Jennifer Kincheloe pops in to Wine Women & Writing for a chat about THE BODY IN GRIFFITH PARK with Pamela Fagan Hutchins. Jennifer is a research scientist and writer of historical mysteries. Her novels take place in 1900s LosĀ Angeles among the police matrons of the LAPD and combine, mystery, history, humor, and romance. Join us here.


Thank you, dear reader, for spending this year with me. I hope 2020 brings you peace, health, joy, and love.
