I recently hosted a guided walk and book reading at dusk at Exeter Cemetery, where I set some spines a’tingling alongside the crypt. I had rolled out some “fake” blood and everything. It was super fun! I do so love Halloween.
You can sample the Exeter flavors of Halloween on your own when you read my newest cozy-caper, “Incident at Exeter Depot”. It spins three new, creepy stories set in places I tend to haunt. Like cemeteries: I admit I am a fan.
Here is the link to the book (or just go to Water St Bookstore). https://www.amazon.com/Incident-Exeter-Depot-Mini-Mystery-Mini-Mysteries-ebook/dp/B08XM32YVG As you know, all profits to support Black Heritage projects in Exeter, NH.
Now, what else have I been up to? I had a professional genealogist working on Black Revolutionary War soldier Jude Hall’s family tree this summer. And I have also created a Facebook page “Jude and Rhoda Hall Society” on her suggestion. Once the tree is complete, we will place it up there as a downloadable file. Jude and Rhoda have hundreds of descendants. Right up to today.
And I finally met with the fun people at the Black Heritage Trail of New Hampshire in regards to Exeter’s Black Heritage Pocket-Park. They love the idea and would like to put a BHTNH marker there too. Yay!
And upcoming, there is a birthday road trip in the works! Seems I will be passing quite near to the Harriet Tubman Memorial Garden in Maryland. I plan to stop in and see what this pocket-park looks like. It may be helpful in some way to the pocket park project we will be working on this spring.
I’ll be back, post-trip, with an update on the trip. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy my creepy book…
