Season’s Greetings to all my wonderful friends and followers.

Wishing all my wonderful friends and followers here the very happiest and fun-filled Festive Season and the happiest, safest, healthiest and most prosperous New Year. I have really loved meeting you and chatting with you all here and want to thank you all for making this blog a place I like to visit every day – such fun to see what you are all doing and what comments you have made. I do hope you enjoy visiting and catching up with me as well. I am going to be away for a few days and so I want to let you know that I will catch up with you when I get back. If you are still thinking about gifts for someone who likes to read Crime stories, do please consider helping The Princess Alice Hospice and purchasing In A Word: Murder.  They exist on donations only and do such a wonderful job for those who are terminally ill.  They cared for Crime writer, blogger and editor Maxine Clarke especially. Maxine passed away last year and this book is to her memory and benefit of the Hospice. I think of  In A Word: Murder,  as the gift which keeps on giving.  I would be thrilled if you gave this as a gift and by doing so, helped the Hospice and their patients at the same time.
