Gail Farrelly grew up in The Bronx and now resides in Bronxville, NY. Having a doctorate in accounting from George Washington University, she’s taught in several universities and published numerous articles in business and academic journals. Learning about the murderous politics of academic life turned her mind to crime. The fictional kind, of course! Her first mystery, “Beaned In Boston,” in which a lecherous professor perishes even though he was well published, was named to the Washington Irving Book Selection List. Her short story, “Even Steven,” was nominated for a Derringer Award. Gail writes spoofs for the Yonkers Tribune Webaper, www.YonkersTribune.com, and for a British website, TheSpoof.com. Gail shares a website, http://www.farrellysistersonline.com/, with her sister Rita, also a mystery writer.
Merry Christmas! To add to the joy of the season, starting December 15th, the Yonkers Tribune began publishing a series of five fun Christmas spoofs penned by Gale Farrelly. This is Article V, dated December 23rd. One every other day, leading up to the big day. Of course Santa Claus is in each one.

Come Christmas, many prominent Democrats will find themselves with empty stockings hanging from their fireplaces. The reason? President Trump has declared the areas over their homes No-Fly Zones, so Santa and Rudolph cannot drop off gifts.
Fearful of getting on Trump’s bad side, Santa and Rudolph had to give in to Trump’s demand.
And Frosty the Snowman is refraining from criticizing Trump, since he’s been tapped to perform an “old silk hat” dance at White House festivities in January. Pals are calling him a turncoat, but he’s explained that it’s the off season and he needs the work. “After Christmas, there’s not a lot of interest in Frosty, his old silk hat, and his corncob pipe,” he moaned.
But Trump is unrepentant. Shrugging, he announced, “In 2016 I warned those Democrats not to go around shouting I’M WITH HER before Election Day. Now just see where it’s gotten them!”
Trump concluded: “Bah humbug!”
