Pat Wahler of Missouri.
In Pat's e-mail entry, she also shared this charming Christmas memory:
"As a kid, even after I'd grown too old to "believe", there was something about lying in bed on Christmas Eve. You could almost hear the sleighbells and feel the magic. It was a time that suspended logic and dared me to dream the impossible. And I must admit that all these decades later, Christmas still affects me the same way!"
And thanks to everyone who entered by e-mail, the kind-hearted Anonymous writer who posted a comment about the book on Monday's blog, and to Tricia Grissom who continues to spread the word about writing, contests, submission opportunities, and other great stuff on the Coffee and Critique blog.
Until Monday, have a great weekend, stay warm, and take time to write.
