Debra Lawless, reporter for the Cape Cod Chronicle and a wonderful friend, has a stupendous book, Chatham in the Jazz Age,  published in 2009 by History Press.

Debra investigates five prominent residents of Chatham, MA (Cape Cod) –  Harold C. Dunbar, Alice Walker Guild, Heman Andrew Harding, Joseph C. Lincoln and Alice Stallknecht Wight – and reveals their contribution to putting Chatham on the map as a national tourist destination. She also uncovers some secrets of this supposed Eden. It’s a truly great read!

Debra is working on the sequel to Chatham in the Jazz Age,  and says it’s going well. I personally can’t wait!

If you are familiar with LaRosa Chronicles and know of my next book, Summer And August, you will see Debra investigating a murder in Chatham.

Here I am with Debra, in the lounge of the Cranberry Inn, in Chatham, discussing her character. (05/23/09)
