The blog tour continues with two stops today. I'm featured on Bonnie get's a Say's Book Buzzin Tuesday and Everything to do with Books. Thanks, so much for hosting me and helping me celebrate Michael and Leesie FOREVER!!

I'm totally distracted this week because I'm working until the wee hours of the morning on the musical stage adaption of SING ME TO SLEEP. It's such an exciting process to see it transform. I'm collaborating with Harriet Bushman, who composed the music and arranged "Beth's Song" and "Take me Home." Yes, the music is going to be fantastic. I'm transforming chapters into scenes and lyrics. It's exciting for sure.

But I did promise you more Thailand. After I got out of the hospital, we couldn't fly home. I had to wait before I went up in a plane so I didn't wreck all the good work the decompression chamber did for me. My husband got us rooms at the J. Willard Marriott resort. Nice place to recuperate. We loved it so much that we went back on another trip and even ended up buying into their vacation club. That's where Michael teaches those newlyweds that get him thinking about marriage.

We didn't spend all our time on Phuket in the water. We went to an elephant show and spent a day on a jungle tour. And who can resist the beach?

We learned to make fresh green curry.

This is a rubber tree. The milky white stuff in the bowel is raw rubber.
