Vicki Grant Chronicle Herald Young Adult AuthorI’ve got a new gig.

In addition to working on a mystery set in wartime Halifax, I’m writing a weekly column for The Chronicle Herald.

Called “Creative Catalysts”, it looks at people or organizations who make Halifax a culturally interesting place to live. So far I’ve interviewed a plastic surgeon with a passion for visual art, a choir leader who welcomes the tone-deaf and a member of the local literati who charmed a famous author into singing her “Happy Birthday”.

For next Tuesday’s column, I’ll be talking with the force behind In the Dead of Winter Music Festival.

After that? I hope to track down a mover-and-shaker in the local stand-up scene.
