Finding Your Side Hustle

Sat. Feb. 13, 2021

11 am - 12:30 pm


A lot of people think the newer and shinier something is, the better it has to be. I respectfully disagree—which is why my husband and I purchased the old Broadway Inn in coastal Maine with the goal of restoring this 1860 beauty to her former glory. It’s taking longer than planned, thanks to broken joists, crumbling walls, holes in the roof, and other unexpected adventures (including a ghost cat in the upstairs rooms). We fell in love with the old inn a couple of years ago while on a hunt for a new town closer to my New England roots. Plans are to reopen it to guests as a self-catering style inn, while also hosting a live podcast and a curated series of seasonal events  that will feature writers, storytellers, musicians, filmmakers, beekeepers, chefs, artists, historians, and other interesting folks. The talk is hosted by Sunrise Senior College, part of the University of Maine at Machias. The event is free, but requires registration.

Release of THE BONE FIELD!

In Book #2 of The Dark Paradise Mystery series, Detective Kali Mahoe investigates a cold case. Bodies keep popping up in an old abandoned pineapple field on Kaua'i Island.  The first skeleton  has a macabre adornment—a wooden pineapple in place of a head. Kali hunts a serial killer, uncovers a cult, and is baffled by a symbol and an old legend of monsters that connect the nameless dead.
