A Cold Poker Gang Story!!

That’s right, one of my stories that Kris wanted for the WMG Holiday Spectacular 2022 went out today!! It’s a Cold Poker Gang story and you can still get it just fine by going to and signing up for the Holiday Calendar of a story per day. You will get the ones already sent out (such as my first one) and then get a story per day from there.

Now would be a great time to get on board if you have missed it up to now. Read a holiday story every day.

And for those of you who have read my story, wouldn’t this make a great opening for the next Cold Poker Gang novel? The book would be called CASE CARD.

    I’d been waiting for this one! I loved it! And I’d love to read on and find out more. I’d especially like to find out if it really was… well. I don’t want to spoil it 😉

      Thanks, Linda. A pretty good study in how a short story can wrap down and end, and yet be the opening of a puzzle mystery novel at the same time.
