I’d like to wish all the readers and contributors to this blog a very Merry Christmas and a New Year blessed with good health, peace, and contentment.

I look forward to a new year which will see a new Parker Havenot novel and possibly two anthologies of short fiction and non-fiction I’ve written over the years, including some award winning essays and short stories.

I also will be praying that one of my correspondents is correct in the prediction that there will an arrest in the Stacey Burns murder case, and I can finally finish Murder in a Small Town: The Tragic Death of Stacey Burns.

God bless you all at this special season, and let’s all try not to lose sight of the true messages of Christmas- JOY! PEACE! LOVE!

All my best to everyone!
