I’m sorry to have been absent for so long a time. But life happens and other kinds of writing have demanded my attention. I will soon begin blogging again on a regular basis but I’m focused presently on a book for The History Press’s Hidden History Series on Downtown St. Louis (https://www.arcadiapublishing.com/Navigation/Series/THPSeries/HIDDEN-HISTORY).
It will contain many of the stories that I tell on my walking tours but with a lot more detail than touring time usually allows for.
There will also be new stories about St. Louis people and events that are little known or virtually unknown to the general public and I’m very excited to be telling them!
In the meantime I’ve also been giving tours, most recently a Valentine Sweet Tooth Coach Tour for a wonderful group of Seniors from the Rockwood Bank in High Ridge, Missouri.
It began with Chocolate Covered Strawberries from Merbs Candies and the calories just kept adding up at La Patisserie Chouquette, Rigazzis and The Missouri Baking Company on The Hill, and finally Bissingers Chocolates.
I’ve also been constructing new tours for spring and summer. So while absent from Word Press, I’ve been very busy. Thanks for not giving up on me!
Be back soon.
