All of my recent writing has focused on getting Live Free or Die, my new Parker Havenot novel, ready for publication. It appears on track for a spring publication date so watch for further information coming up.

  and have made a personal holiday resolution to write letters to anyone in authority in New Hampshire, from the governor down to the local police and any agencies in between, to inquire about the “progress” in the Stacey Burns murder case.

I will let you know the results of these inquiries but I am not anticipating any answers worth reporting. In fact, if previous efforts are any indication, I should not expect any answers, period.

It certainly would not the case to have many more people make similar inquiries. If you choose to do so, I’d be happy to post your results as well.

My very best to everyone at this special time of the year.
