As with the past four years, Christmas is here and I'm running at full steam. Not in the pursuit of gift giving and holiday cheer, but to finish the latest Odelia Grey manuscript. The book is going well, albeit slowly due to life getting in the way, but overall I'm pleased with it so far.
Last night I went to my first holiday party. It was thrown by the Southern California Chapter of Mystery Writers of America at the Jonathan Club in Santa Monica. It was a lovely venue and great party and I was able to catch up with a lot of friends and folks I haven't seen in a long time. Next week is the big party thrown by my law firm. It will be at the new Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills. Wooooooooo Hooooooooo!
