Last weekend I went to NYC for my sister’s baby shower. Of course my visit coincided with the arrival of frigid temperatures. I love navigating NYC on foot, but with an artic blast, not so pleasant.

Needless to say, it was still a great trip. How can a trip to NYC, not be great? Especially when it involves visiting family, making new friends, and research for an upcoming project.

So I can make the sensory details accurate, I took countless pictures and pages of notes, much to my daughter’s chagrin. She’d peer at me as I feverishly took notes when we were out and about or I’d stop to take photos of seemingly random things. “Oh,” she said with an exasperated huff. “More book stuff.”

Here are some of the random photos I took.

What do…

IMAG0437 …a diner

IMAG0453 …an elevator…


…with Ginko leaves on the ceiling…

DSC03513 …a rooftop terrace…


…and this little white box have to do with my new YA novel??

You’ll just have to stay tuned to find out the juicy details. Smile
