As 2023 winds down . . .

cj Sez:  In the midst of the angst of world-wide wars and civil disruptions, it is with great joy that I celebrate the birth of Christ—a figure of love and hope.


Merry Christmas


I pray your holiday celebrations at this sacred time of year

are filled to the brim with God’s peace and joy

and the love of family and friends. May love,

health, peace, and happiness

follow you through all

the days of 2024.


The Lord bless you and keep you;

The Lord make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
The Lord lift up His countenance upon you,

And give you peace.

   Lyrical Pens is taking the rest of the year off, but please know, I am profoundly grateful for each friend/fan/reader who visited this page during 2023 (and before). 
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

   I hope to see all y’all in 2024. Please join Lyrical Pens on January 7, 2024, for part 2 of “Contronyms” and etc.


(PS:  If you’re still wondering what to give someone, give them an adventure…give them a book! Books are non-fattening, easy to wrap, and lasts all year long and then some.)

Here are two great anthologies for your shopping list:

Christmas Through a Child’s Eyes

  This anthology has 70 stories written by adults recounting their extraordinary childhood Christmas memories. My story, written under my maiden name of Marilyn Olsein, is titled “Dancing with Daddy,” and relates how six-year-old me reconnected with my Swedish father after a major upheaval in our lives.  

  The anthology is free on Kindle Unlimited    Buy Now   

  FINALLY HOME brings you eight Christmas stories all about our four-legged friends and the special people who rescue them. From funny, to sad, to romantic, there’s something here to tug at everyone’s heart strings. 

  My short story, Puppy Love, is included.


Price Increase Alert: My novels, THE DAWGSTAR and DEATH ON THE YAMPA will be going up in price on Jan 1, 2024. Right now, they are priced at only $2.99.

  The novels are fast-paced, thriller/suspense stories with sassy banter and a smidgen of romance. They are available on Amazon or through your favorite eTailer and bookstore. Got a library card? You can read the ebooks free from Hoopla. The Haunted Book Shop has a few signed copies of my paperback books in stock and will ship. TO ORDER, contact:
