Four Aces

For those who may not have known this to be true, one of my hobbies is that of the cruciverbalist. In other words, I make crossword puzzles and have been published in several newspapers and magazines. Here’s a sample of a sports-themed puzzle I created in 2008. (Keep that in mind when solving.) Feel free to print it out and give it a try.

For those of you in the market for a cruciverbalist, or perhaps you just might want to purchase a personalized puzzle of your very own - they make lovely holiday gifts – get in touch with me via the comments and we’ll discuss.
