Last night, I had the privilege of speaking to a group of docents at Smith’s Castle, a 340-year-old house museum located right here in North Kingstown, Rhode Island. These men and women generously volunteer their time to dress in period costumes and lead school children and tour groups through this fascinating old house. They were a wonderful audience as I spoke to them about the fun I had researching and writing Frozen Voices. I also talked a little bit about the lighthouse book series and they seemed eager to read the first book when it comes out in the spring.

Hooray for great men and women like the Smith’s Castle docents who give so freely of their time and talents to teach us all about our fascinating, historic past!
