My next writing adventure takes me back to 1930s Boston so, of course, I am using any opportunities I can to head out to Beantown and its historical wonderfulness in order to immerse myself in the place and walk for hours. I stayed at the Omni Parker House: which will be familiar to readers of Of Dubious and Questionable Memory as one of the locations Jem and Merinda visit on their Massachusetts adventure.

We also found ourselves in the Room Where It Happens seeing the amazing Chicago cast of Hamilton --including new addition Wayne Brady as Aaron Burr. note: I got these tickets the day the first block of Chicago seats went onsale last June. That's how long we waited.

speaking of Unlike Anything I have Ever Seen, I am a huge fan of Come From Away. I saw the original cast in Toronto last fall during their pre-broadway run and am absolutely thrilled that this small Canadian musical with a staggeringly beautiful story and infused with Maritime Canadian music is making a splash on broadway.

As for theater in Toronto, I will be seeing Mrs. Henderson Presents straight from the West End next week so will keep you posted.
And this past week I was in the East Coast of our great country for work!

And from St. John's, I flew a tiny plane out to PEI. Last time I was in Charlottetown was in the height of summer--- it is decidedly more quiet at this time of the year.
So, that's what I have been up to. And it doesn't slow down a lot. I still have work travel for my day job and an Easter Weekend research trip back to Boston. But, I am also excited about THE WHITE FEATHER MURDERS which releases May 1
There's a nice review in the next issue of Romantic Times
