I’ve been writing at the strike of the New Year for years now and this year will be no exception. If you want to friend, please do. I need some friends during this holiday season because at the beginning of the year it will be time to launch into the next book and the research is lonely and sometimes gruesome. As asked previously, how do homicide detectives persevere? I couldn’t do it. Darn, I promised myself to keep it lighter until then.
