This is a debut week for me at The Laker, the wonderful publication out of Wolfeboro NH. My first column is titled, “Area Museums: Much More Than Glass Display Cases.” In the piece, I look at four of the state’s excellent pedagogic properties—The Wright Museum, The New Hampshire Boat Museum, The Libby Museum, and The Museum of the White Mountains. Writing for the Laker presents an interesting set of challenges. Unlike my InDepthNH.org column, which always looked at an aspect of travel and tourism, I’m given a new challenge each issue by The Laker’s excellent editor, Kathleen Hopper. For example, my first four columns look at museums, a racetrack, real estate, and green building. Writing for The Laker is like going back to the classroom . . . only, this time on the other side of the desk. I’m loving this opportunity.
On the murder mystery front, I still don’t have a release date for One Track Mind, the first book in my new 100-plus page Commissioner Kary Turnell Mystery series. I’m waiting for word from my publisher when One Track Mind as well as A Thief in the House and Long Walk/Short Deck will be released. I promise that you’ll know as soon as I do.
I promised you a hint about the marketing plan for this new series. So, here it is: pretty soon, you’ll be able to take a Kary Turnell Mystery Tour. The tour can be self-guided or led by a certain mystery writer.
We’re soon headed out to LA for our granddaughter’s first birthday. I’ll chat again after I return. Stay warm.
