A big beautiful holly bush, laden with its red berries, ubiquitous symbol of Christmas, greets me every time I climb the post office steps.


This particular bush has become entwined with my hopes and dreams, as I mail my stories, queries, proposals, and screenplay competition entries. What better Season’s Greetings with which to wish you all the Merriest of Christmases and a New Year that shines brightly? May all your own hopes and dreams stay bright, throughout the coming year…and always.
