Greetings of the Season to my Readers!

di and pups xmas 09Happy Holidays!

I want to take this opportunity to thank you, my readers, for bringing me such joy this year. Every writer’s dream is to reach people with his or her words, and I’ve been lucky to be able to do that throughout my career, but this year has felt particularly special. I’ve loved hearing from you on the blog, in individual emails and on Facebook. I’ve adored speaking by speakerphone to your bookclubs as you discussed my books. I’d partiularly like to thank my new UK and Australian readers for bringing my stories into your hearts and homes this year. It’s been fun knowing that my books have made their way into your hands.

I write because I love to tell stories, but without you all, it would be a lonely business. I hope you can get together with family and friends as 2009 winds down, and that books hold as prominent a place in your holiday celebration as they do in mine.
