Another Christmas Day

Today is December 25, 2015. If you are reading these words, congratulations! Another Christmas Day has been granted to you.


Merry Christmas!


No matter your religious belief, this is the time of year to be near those you love. To express gratitude for having them in your life. Too many families have been ripped apart by jealousy, suspicion, anger, and resentment. While those jealous, angry, resentful words spoken cannot be erased, they can be rectified. For, as long as both parties breathe, words can be used to heal, just as they can to hurt.


One day, you will wake up, and the people you love will be gone. Whether the passing was a hard fought blessing, or a sudden punch in the gut, the fact will be they’re no longer there to laugh with you, hold your hand, or hear your words.


So, reach out. Connect. Apologize. Forgive. Don’t be stingy. Share your love.


Remember, Christmas is a celebration of life. Make the most of this opportunity. Laugh, love, dine, sing and dance. Today. Now. For there is no promise for tomorrow.


Make merry this Christmas. And I pray you hold onto that merriment throughout the New Year.



The Mushroom Murder is coming

Keep an eye my blog for the upcoming post of Chapter One, the new McShane Mini-Mystery Series installment The Mushroom Murder. I hope to have  it posted here on January 4, 2016.

I’ll be adding a chapter each Monday. Since, as my readers know, there are only five chapters to each book, the draft of this novella should be complete by February, 2016. This will be the fourth book in the series. If you’d like to catch up on the first three, you can find them on my JL Mo Amazon Author Page.

I am certain you’ll enjoy the return of reluctant billionaire, Sam McShane.
