editor’s note


f someone had said to me in high school that I would be running my third marathon this October, I never would have believed it. I wasn’t the athletic type. I could barely make it around the track. I was more interested in marching in the band than pounding the pavement. But 25 years and two kids later, I started searching for an outlet that would help shed the baby weight and make me feel better about myself. Four years ago, I started running slowly for one minute at a time on the treadmill at my local gym. From there, I started to train for my first race—the Brewster in Bloom 5K—and before I knew it, I was running the 200-mile Ragnar Relay with people I had never met before. Running has opened doors for me. I have met so many wonderful, inspiring and kind people over the past few years, especially after I became a member of the Cape Cod Athletic Club. Running helps me focus throughout the

day and I get my best story ideas while running in the morning with a clear head. So I am extremely proud to present our first running guide, which is very close to my heart. I hope you enjoy the stories about the Falmouth Road Race (which I am running for the third time this year), a profile on a Sandwich runner and mom who has run a marathon in every state, a Q&A with the president of the Cape Cod Athletic Club, a profile of the owner of Hanlon’s Shoes, a calendar of races and much more. The running community on the Cape is incredibly inspiring and welcoming. If you are on the fence about running, give it a shot! You can follow my running adventures on Instagram @capecodmarathonmom. Oh, if only my high school gym teacher Mrs. Erickson could see me now!

"Jackie" and "Jack," by Richard Neal

Pieces of Kennedy History Cape artist Richard Neal has created stunning mixed media images of John F. Kennedy and Jackie Kennedy using materials salvaged from a remodel at their Hyannisport summer home. The idea was planted in 2011 when designer and builder Mark Grenier was contacted to restore and preserve the cottage on the Kennedy compound, owned by Ted Kennedy, Jr., and his wife, Kiki. Grenier did not want to simply dispose of the pieces of history, so he contacted the John F. Kennedy Hyannis Museum. Through the museum, the Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce, and the Cultural Center of Cape Cod, a call went out to local artists. Neal is one of 32 Cape artists who participated in the project. His piece entitled “Jack” is a portrait of JFK in a pensive pose, painted onto part of a bookcase that once belonged to JFK Jr. “I cut the shelves and put them back together in a different way,” says Neal. His piece entitled “Jackie” is made from a window frame. The three-dimensional iconic images change in appearance when viewed from different angles. —Marina Davalos Richard Neal’s artwork will be part of a JFK centennial auction 6-10 p.m. on Aug. 7 at the Wequassett Resort & Golf Club in Harwich, 2173 Route 28, Harwich. $125 per person. Proceeds will benefit the JFK Hyannis Museum’s upcoming renovations. For more information, visit

Around 200 surfers compete in the annual Cape Cod Oldtimers Longboard Classic and many more people line the dunes to watch the end-of-summer celebration at White Crest Beach in Wellfleet.

Summer Tradition


he Cape Cod Oldtimers Longboard Classic at White Crest Beach in Wellfleet is a summer tradition on the Outer Cape. It was started in 1974 by Jasper’s Surf Shop owner Mike Houghton to lure surfers back to the fun of riding waves on longboards. In the beginning, originally held at Coast Guard Beach, it was more of a party. Rick Weeks, an original oldtimer, remembers one surfer who “rented a helicopter in Chatham and dropped in with his surfboard.” He won the “Drop In of the Day Award.” Al Peterson, who worked at Jasper’s in the 1970s, still helps run the contest. “It was a huge success that turned into an end-of-summer celebration,” says Peterson, who remarks on the multigenerational participation. “It’s all about fun, not skill.” Today, the most popular award



is Rookie of the Year, but there are plenty of categories to enter. There’s no experience needed and no wetsuits or leashes allowed. About 200 surfers compete and many more people line the dunes to watch, setting up grills and offering food to surfers and spectators alike. This year, the contest takes place at 5 p.m. on Aug. 20 at White Crest Beach. Participants can sign up online or in person at the Pump House Surf Shop in Orleans. Matt Rivers of the Pump House welcomes the company: “A lot of people want to come into the store to sign up and talk surf, just like the old days.” Entry fees of $25 include a T-shirt and help fund a Nauset High School scholarship named in honor of Kenney Norton, one of the original surf contestants.

Coastal Wine Charms


hat began as a quest to find unique buttons evolved into a new business venture for Marissa and Michael Semprucci, founders of the Braintree-based manufacturing company Trimdin. Known for their artisan jacket line, the couple initially set out to create stylized pewter buttons. However, the idea was better in theory than in practice. “They didn’t work well,” says Marissa, “but we thought they were really inter-



esting and asked ourselves, ‘What else could we use these for?’” The company now offers handcrafted pewter wine bottle “necklaces” on customizable ribbons. Nautical designs include anchors and sand dollars and starfish cast from actual sea creatures. The charms can be draped around the neck of a wine bottle to add a bit of flair. The charms are available at Tale of the Cod in Chatham, The Write Choice in Mashpee and online at —Emily Good

tings, so running and walking shoes are our top sellers overall. Over the past couple of years, we have brought in more niche apparel pieces that tell authentic brand stories. These pieces do very well for us because they fit great and the colors and patterns are fun and different from what you might find elsewhere. What do you love most about your job? My customers first and foremost! I meet new people every single day, from the enthusiastic “newbie” runners to seasoned runners who have become my best friends and run buddies! What is your favorite running shoe brand (and why)? Currently, I’m running in Hoka One One and Brooks, but I have my eye on a new Adidas shoe as well as a “zero drop” shoe from Altra. What shoe I wear also depends on what I’m training for—road 5ks to marathons and trail races, so it’s good to have options. Everyone is different when it comes to shoes. What works for one runner might not work for another. Where is your favorite place to run on the Cape? I have an easy out-andback 4-miler I do from my house and the turnaround is a beautiful beach on Nantucket Sound. You really can’t beat that! I also love that I can hop on the Cape Cod Rail Trail and run for miles. When the new bike trail extension is complete, I’ll be able to run from my house to the store!

Great Books For Kids BY MEGHAN NANAN

“RIPTIDE” By Frances Ward Weller

“MAX AND CHARLIE HELP A HERO” By Kim Roderiques and K.M. Ginter, with illustrations by Giorgia Florena Shaban This inspirational book tells the story of a young boy, Charlie, and his adopted dog, Max, who travel around Cape Cod and Nantucket raising money for a veteran and his service dog. Based on a true story about a group of kids on Nantucket who raised money to have a service dog trained for a veteran, this story teaches children that they are never too young to help someone in need. Max and Charlie’s adventures explore the role of service dogs and the importance of honoring veterans. This unique book overlays illustrations on top of real Cape Cod photographs taken by Kim Roderiques, and all of the characters are based on real local heroes. Kids will enjoy seeing real landmarks, such as Main Street in Chatham and the Old North Wharf on Nantucket incorporated in this story. In addition, a portion of the proceeds from this book goes to Nantucket Holidays for Heroes, the Nicholas G. Xiarhos Memorial Fund and the MSPCA.

A heartwarming and heroic tale of a family dog, Riptide, who just can’t stay away from the beach despite the rule that no dogs are allowed. Determined and passionate, this golden retriever continuously returns to Nauset Beach, only to be chased away by the lifeguards. But Riptide’s love and fascination with Nauset Beach is what brings him to help save swimmers from the dangerous riptides. Based on a true story, Riptide won the hearts of many, especially the 18 lifeguards who watched over Nauset Beach and called Riptide their “19th lifeguard.” The story is accompanied with detailed illustrations by Robert J. Blake. Children and families will love this classic Cape Cod story of courage, love and a one-of-a-kind dog. First released in the 1990s, Riptide’s beloved tale is now back in print for all to enjoy. 30 pages, David R. Godine Publishing, $10.95,

Titcomb’s Bookshop on Route 6A in Sandwich, which opened its doors 50 years ago, is a beloved store for readers of all ages. At top, Ralph and Nancy Titcomb in earlier days.

Between the Pages



hen Nancy and Ralph Titcomb moved to Connecticut in 1967 for his job at General Electric, they went looking for a home with a yard big enough for their growing family (they had eight children). They found it, but what they also found inside the big old house they purchased was a wealth of abandoned items, including many vintage books. Soon they were part-time antiques and book dealers. When they relocated to Cape Cod two years later and moved into a 17th-century home in Sandwich, selling books became the family business when they opened a shop on Route 6A in Sandwich. Now 50 years in, Titcomb’s Bookshop is a beloved store for readers of all ages. Nancy and Ralph still own the shop and their eldest daughter Vicky manages the business. The bookshop has employed a variety of Titcomb children and grandchildren (even Nancy’s mother worked the cash register into her nineties), and their son Ted 26


crafted the iconic wrought-iron colonial man statue which stands sentry along Route 6A. The business has evolved from used and rare books to today’s bestsellers, with a sizable children’s section. They also celebrate books that are Cape Cod-centric, and Nancy is proud to be one of the founders of the Thornton W. Burgess Society, the Sandwich-born writer/naturalist who created Peter Cottontail. Author readings are popular, and Vicky notes that being an independent bookstore means they can be creative in hosting events. “We offer the community the chance to meet some truly wonderful authors,” says Vicky. After a half century of sharing the love of reading, Nancy says the best thing about selling books “are the people.” Titcomb’s Bookshop, 432 Route 6A, Sandwich, 508-888-2331,

A Passion for Teaching The Cape Cod Art Bar owner Alexandria Tyber says anyone can be an artist—if they try BY MARINA DAVALOS


lexandria (Ali) Tyber, who owns The Cape Cod Art Bar in Mashpee Commons, says that as a child, even though she was always drawing and making things, she never thought of herself as an artist. “I was always under the false pretense that you had to be born with some kind of special talent,” she explains, dismissing a common misinterpretation that some are born artists and others are not. Ali’s mother, the late Callie Lewis Tyber, an artist herself, was Cape Cod’s first yoga teacher. “Hardly anybody even knew what yoga was back in 1968,” says Ali. “They thought it was a weird food that you ate.” Her mother always encouraged creativity, and it was her brother, sculptor Peter Tyber, who first inspired her to paint. He gave Ali some silk scarves and suggested that she paint designs on them. Before she knew it, she was selling them. “I would wear them to my mother’s yoga classes and people would buy them from me,” says Ali. “I experimented and practiced and I made lots of mistakes, but they were just lessons. I got better and better.”

arts culture | ARTIST PROFILE “East Chop Lighthouse”

After graduating from high school in Falmouth, Ali and her family moved to Martha’s Vineyard, where she envisioned owning a painted-clothing store. “In the winter of 1988, two friends and I basically spent the winter in the basement, painting some 2,000 articles of clothing.” She opened Island ArtWear in Oak Bluffs in 38


the spring of 1989 and it closed one year later. “At that point, I decided I really wanted to bring my art up a level.” She began taking classes with marine and landscape artist Christie Velesig, with whom she studied for several years. She also visited various galleries she admired and asked if she could take classes from them.

“Some ignored me, some welcomed me,” she recalls. In 2007, Ali and three fellow artists opened Three Fish and a Ram, a nonprofit community art center in Mashpee Commons, with the premise of selling art and donating proceeds to local charities. The center offered classes in painting, drawing, clay, fiber art, found art, cartooning and yoga. “My passion has always been to show people that we’re all creative.” Ali started teaching beginner-level art classes and each student would produce the same painting. “I googled paint party and realized it was a very big thing in the South. It made me decide to call them paint parties instead of masterpiece workshops. I thought it sounded less intimidating.” Three Fish disbanded in 2013, and Ali formed The Cape Cod Art Bar. In addition to paint parties, The Cape Cod Art Bar offers workshops in oil painting and watercolor, and classes in

Ali has taught art classes at the Falmouth Artists Guild and Cotuit Center for the Arts, and her work has been shown in Woodruff ’s Art Center in Mashpee Commons and Falmouth Hospital. Her passion for bringing out each person’s creativity is evidenced by the fact that many paint party attendees become regulars and some have been coming for years. “You absolutely don’t have to be born with special talent,” says Ali. “It can be learned by anybody with the desire to try.”

AUGUST 2017 






he New Balance Falmouth Road Race will celebrate its 45th renewal on Aug. 20 when nearly 13,000 runners gather at the Woods Hole drawbridge for a seven-mile jaunt to the ballfield by the beach in Falmouth Heights. Call it a Sunday symphony of sweet sweat, choreographed by director Dave McGillivray, assisted by a finely tuned staff and upwards of 2,000 volunteers. It is a well-orchestrated movement of the masses in what has long been a centerpiece of summer on Cape Cod. “My role is more of a conductor,” says McGillivray, now in his sixth year with the baton. “My strength is surrounding myself with good people and letting them do what they do best. I’m just trying to keep all the pieces working together smoothly and harmoniously.” If McGillivray is the leader of the band, then Tommy Leonard is Falmouth’s maestro. The irrepressible Leonard was inspired by watching Frank Shorter win the 1972 Olympic marathon. Leonard’s dream of staging a local road race came true in 1973 and blossomed into a world-class spectacle with an elite international field competing for prize money and one of the most coveted non-marathon crowns in the sport. But it wasn’t always this way.

A runner for many years, this is Dave McGillivray’s sixth year as the road race director. “My role is more of a conductor. I’m just trying to keep all the pieces working together smoothly and harmoniously.”




Leonard was into running before running was in and competed often in the Boston Marathon. He also spent many summers as a bartender on the Cape and in 1972 was at the Brothers 4, a popular club in Falmouth Heights. The 1972 Summer Olympics were in Munich, Germany, and when the marathon came on the television, Leonard turned up the sound and shut down the bar. Instead of dispensing drinks, he poured his heart out with animated analysis as Shorter raced to victory, the first American gold medalist in the event since 1908. “Wouldn’t it be fantastic,” Leonard remembers saying, “if we could get Frank Shorter to run a race on Cape Cod?” And the rest is history.

Runners roll out of Woods Hole in the first of seven scenic miles.

Leonard met John Carroll, a teacher and track coach at Falmouth High School, and Rich Sherman, the town’s recreation director. Together they organized the “Woods HoleFalmouth Marathon” for a rainy Wednesday afternoon on Aug. 15, 1973—Leonard’s 39th birthday. Of course, it wasn’t a 26.2-mile marathon, but the peculiar idea of road racing was in its infancy and such details were of little consequence. In fact, it was a fun run from one bar (Captain Kidd) in Woods Hole to another (Brothers 4) in the Heights. Thus, the quirky distance of seven miles. Leonard and Sherman were two of the 92 finishers. The legendary marathoner Johnny Kelley, 65 at the time, also ran and was the star at the post-race party jitterbugging on the dance floor amid Schlitz beer and bologna sandwiches.

Pounding the pavement on the way to the finish in Falmouth Heights.

For the second race in 1974, Leonard recruited Bill Rodgers, promising that there would be girls in bikinis passing out water along the beach. He wasn’t yet “Boston Billy,” a future Boston Marathon winner and Hall of Famer, but he nonetheless beat the betterknown Olympic miler Marty Liquori. Press reports called him “Will Rogers.” He won a blender and his car was towed. In 1975, Leonard’s fantasy became reality when Shorter, the Olympic champion, indeed came to town to run and win. He won in 1975 and in 1976, and he has been back many times, as has Rodgers. Falmouth was off to the races as a “must-run” on the sport’s calendar. “I was a track runner,” says Shorter. “Falmouth was my first real road race and I knew right away it was something special, and that’s because of the powerful personality of Tommy Leonard. Falmouth always has a tremendous number of spectators. People watch it and say ‘This looks like fun,’ and the next year they jump in to run. It’s a great way to spend a summer day.” Rodgers agrees. “Boston is the classic marathon and Falmouth is the classic American road race.” Shorter and Rodgers, now both 69, are scheduled to return for the 45th celebration. Also expected is Joan Benoit Samuelson, the “First Lady of Falmouth.” She is a six-time champion and the gold medalist at the inaugural women’s Olympic marathon in 1984. She turned 60 in May and is still a fierce age-group competitor. “In many ways, my career launched at Falmouth,” says Samuelson. “Coming back every year is like a homecoming, and I think it’s that way for a lot of the runners. It just feels right.”

The route borders Vineyard Sound.




AUGUST 2017 



Falmouth will celebrate its 45th year on Aug. 20 with a field of nearly 13,000 runners.

Leonard, now 84, will be on hand as the grand marshal. “This whole thing—the race, the town, the runners, the volunteers, everyone—has a seductive hold on me,” says Leonard. “It was borne out of friendship. Those who were already friends and those who would become friends. I wanted to do something that would make people feel good.” Leonard remains the beloved spirit of Falmouth and his imprint was recognized at the 40th anniversary with a plaque naming the starting line in his honor. For his part, McGillivray has carried the baton from the original directors, Sherman and Carroll. “I’m a caretaker,” says McGillivray. “I’m trying to be respectful of those who created a world-class event. Falmouth was here long before me and it will be here long after I am gone.” The race is big business, with corporate sponsorships, paydays, parties, T-shirts and trinkets. But Falmouth has never lost its soul. A holiday atmosphere abounds and an enduring image is the large American flag flying at the beach, ushering runners to the finish. For all the camaraderie and competition on race day, Falmouth’s impact on the community is year-round and significant. Race proceeds benefit numerous nonprofits and youth groups. There are also student scholarships for Falmouth residents. Since 2012, the race has helped charities raise $16 million and Falmouth Road Race, Inc. has contributed more than $1 million through its Community Giving and Grants program. “We’ve worked hard to be good neighbors,” says Scott Ghelfi, president of the board of directors. “I think the town appreciates us and what we do. We’re committed to promoting health and wellness and supporting local organizations. That’s our mission and we take it very seriously.” And so, strike up the band and let the good times roll. It’s go time in Falmouth once again.




Kevin Petrovek has run the Falmouth Road Race 36 times, including here in 2010.




ong before the clever “Just Do it” marketing campaign became Nike’s signature slogan, Kevin Petrovek just did it. He laced up his shoes and ran for no other reason than that it made him feel better. This was in the mid-1970s. He’s been running ever since, and is a Pied Piper of sorts for many who have been following in his footsteps. The congenial Petrovek, now 66, is owner of Hanlon Shoes, a comfortable Hyannis hangout for anyone interested in just doing it. A family-run business dating to the 1970s, he worked at the Norwood store when he was in high school. He became manager of the Hyannis location in 1981 and bought the store eight years ago. On any given day, he can be found chatting about an upcoming workout or race, the popular Wednesday night walk-run classes, or fitting a customer for summer sandals. Need advice on Nike vs. New Balance running shoes? See Kevin. Need a training tip or help finding a local race? Ask Kevin. What role does running play in his life? The cover photo on the Hanlon Shoes Facebook page is Log Off Shut Down Go Run. “I guess it’s just who I am,” says Petrovek. “I’m a creature of habit. I run five or six days a week for about an hour, usually five or six miles. I might do a spin class one day. I like my cocktail in the evening. I like theater and golf, but a good workout, especially running, gets me going in the morning.” He has completed more than 100 marathons. He ran 41 consecutive Bostons until skipping the 2016 race. He’s run the Falmouth Road Race 36 times, and you’d be hard-pressed to name a local event he hasn’t done. “I was competitive when I was younger,” says Petrovek, who grew up in Norwood and was a fine baseball and hockey player. He started running after graduate school at Boston University and was a member of the Boston Athletic Association. He had an eight-year stretch of finishing the Boston Marathon in 2 hours and 35 minutes or better. “I had

a goal to qualify for the Olympic marathon trials, but couldn’t quite make it. My best time was 2:29 and I needed a 2:22. I wasn’t great, just good enough to be good.” Nowadays, he finds himself returning to his roots and the simple joy of running. He’s no longer consumed by racing or extending media-manufactured endurance streaks. What Petrovek still craves, however, is the fellowship and camaraderie of runners, and it’s a passion he happily shares. He supports dozens of races with gift certificates and merchandise from Hanlon’s. He is especially generous to the Massachusetts Special Olympics Jolly Jaunt in December. In conjunction with the Hyannis Half-Marathon and Marathon, Hanlon’s has hosted celebrity fun runs with Hall of Famers Frank Shorter, Bill Rodgers, Greg Meyer and Joan Benoit Samuelson. Marathon champion Meb Keflezighi also stopped in the store in 2010 to promote an autobiography. Petrovek started a Wednesday night walk-run program at Barnstable High School in 1999 and it’s going strong, helping everyone from walkers and beginner joggers to experienced racers. Along with coach Paul Fendler and the Hyannis Road Runners club, they conduct 12-week programs in the spring and fall. Graduation for the summer class is the threemile Centerville Old Home Week race. Other times of the year, groups gather at Hanlon’s for Wednesday fun runs through Hyannisport. Kevin’s 10-miler is an informal race held every Super Bowl Sunday to pass the time until kickoff. He also assists with other events and organizes bus transportation for local entrants in the Boston Marathon. Petrovek is not preachy or pushy about running, but it clearly works for him in his job and in his life. He’s happy, healthy, and fit, and has avoided any significant injuries over 40-plus years. If it’s something others would like to try, he’s happy to help. Just ask him. And then just do it.

Enjoying the

JOURNEY Local ‘warrior’ who has run a marathon in all 50 states helps others reach the finish line


very Wednesday evening, you can find Stephanie Thompson at the Sandwich end of the Cape Cod Canal. The weather matters not—with sun on her face or rain in her hair, she’s ready to lead anyone who arrives before 5:30 p.m. on a four-mile run to the Sagamore Bridge and back. Attendees range in age, skill level and speed, but all have something in common: together, they are Warrior Runners. Thompson, 33, started the free fun run on New Year’s Day, spreading the word via a blog on her website ( It doesn’t hurt that the location is also where she works for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers as a Cape Cod Canal park ranger. From the first event, which attracted eight people, a couple of regulars have returned weekly to run with her—but, more accurately, she runs alongside them. When asked why she does it, Thompson says, “I like the leadership aspect of it.” For 60


her, it’s all about embarking on a journey, however short or long, and “helping someone along the way.” When speaking with Thompson, it’s hard not to notice a refreshing genuineness in her character. Perhaps some mistake her quiet and kind demeanor for shyness or innocence before learning of the challenges she has faced and battles she has fought. In truth, her tendency to lead and the name of her running group derive from her personal experience: Thompson herself is a warrior, a veteran of the U.S. Navy who served active duty from 2006 to 2010. Just last fall, Thompson completed one of her biggest goals yet: to run a marathon in each of the 50 states. It took her about four years, over which she says she averaged one marathon per month. Thompson has also run marathons on five different continents, facing about every challenge imaginable throughout her travels. “I got food poisoning in Peru, frostbite on [Mount] KilimanAUGUST 2017



jaro,” she says. In Antarctica, she ran a marathon with a blind man and his guide, she stayed with them until they reached the finish line. “Between the Navy and running I feel like I’ve built up this foundation, this toolbox,” she says of her ability to overcome obstacles and help others do the same. “I may be soft-spoken, but I’m going to be right there with people at the base level doing the activity.” Thompson’s philosophy on life—that it is its own marathon, or journey, rife with hurdles—and her eagerness to help other people are woven through her daily actions. She coaches the girls’ cross country team for the Sandwich STEM Academy, and in addition to her regular job, offers running services like coaching, personal and group training with a free initial consultation and athletic evaluation. This month, Thompson will be running the Falmouth Road Race in support of the Special Olympics Massachusetts (she had already raised more than half of her $1,000 fundraising goal in early June). Whatever she’s doing, she enjoys getting to know others on a personal level. “If people trust you, they’re going to let it all out. I like learning what their goals are and what they’re trying to overcome.” She helped a woman train this year for the Ragnar Cape Cod Relay, a 200-mile running relay from Hull to Provincetown, who was facing physical hardships from pneumonia to severe plantar fasciitis. As a coach, Thompson says the experience challenged her to come up with a dynamic training routine, including three-day rests, running and biking, and even motivational videos. She also provided emotional support. “[Being a coach] is about being that extra support for someone who isn’t sure that they can accomplish a goal they’ve set out to do,” she says, and recalls a favorite quote—“‘The body achieves what the mind believes.’” In addition to her weekly runs at the canal, Thompson has led runs on local hiking trails throughout the summer. More information on her fun runs and other events is posted on her website,

How long have you been president? I’m in my fourth year. How many members are in the Cape Cod Athletic Club? We are at just over 400. What does your organization do for the Cape? The CCAC promotes running and multisport activities and is made up of a diverse group of athletes from ages 8 to 85! The club organizes major road races and events each year, from one milers to marathons. Proceeds from races are donated to charities, scholarships and athletic programs in local communities. The winter Grand Prix races hosted by the CCAC have grown in popularity. What are the Grand Prix races? When I first joined the club, most of the races were held at people’s homes with anywhere from 50 to 80 runners. Now, they have grown to more than 100 runners and most of them are held at venues like Lost Dog Pub in Dennis and the Land Ho! in Harwich, which supply a light fare. Potlucks are also part of our runs at Marathon Sports in Yarmouth, the 19th Hole in Hyannis and the YPD Holiday Race. The races are scheduled every Sunday in December and January and distances range from three to five miles. What are your favorite races to run every year and why? The Falmouth Road Race. It was also my very first race. My mother worked the second water stop for years. I run it

every year as a memorial to her. A couple of years after I started running Falmouth, my daughter Sadie-Lynn asked to join me. This year will be my 13th in a row running Falmouth and Sadie’s ninth. Where do you enjoy running ? My top spot for road running would have to be the course in Chatham that hosts two races: the Chatham Harbor Run in June and Chatham in the Fall in November. My other favorite places are anywhere in the woods: Nickerson State Park in Brewster, Trail of Tears in West Barnstable or a nice 5-miler near my house in Harwich. I’m a trail runner at heart. Have you always been a runner? How has running changed your life? I was not always a runner, but 12 years ago when I ran the Falmouth Road Race I got bitten by the running bug. It’s changed my life in so many ways. I have met people from all over the world and I was never an outgoing person. My health is better as well as my mind. There is nothing better than going out for a run and forgetting about everything for a while. For more information on events, races and how to join the club, visit

AUGUST 2017 



There are some areas of the Cape that are often overlooked, perhaps because they are located in neighborhoods that were once considered undesirable. But what many new homebuyers don’t know is that these pockets of the Cape, near beaches and ponds, have experienced a recent revitalization.

“Ten years ago, there were about 8,000 homes for sale on Cape, today there are a little over 2,000 homes for sale,” says Nik Atsalis of William Raveis Real Estate, speaking to the Cape’s growing popularity. Often overlooked and undervalued, the neighborhoods mentioned in this feature have everything the Cape has to offer: they are on or close to the water, surrounded by natural beauty, near cultural activities and offer a variety of dining options. If owning a home on the Cape is a dream, then it is worth looking in these five up-and-coming areas.

DENNISPORT Dennisport has gone from neglected to revitalized in the last several years, says Ned Chatelain of The Chatelains, a real estate office that spans two generations and covers the Mid-Cape area. Chatelain grew up in Dennisport and has a true love for the village. His parents, Agnes and Ed, owned an ice cream shop in Dennisport for many years until they transitioned

into real estate. Chatelain has been on the Dennisport Revitalization Committee since January 2016. “The Dennisport renaissance is in full swing,” he says. “Last year saw 100 percent occupancy on both sides of Main Street for the first time in many years.” Three new year-round restaurants have recently opened in Dennisport, including Viera, The Red Nun, and the latest, Cleat & Anchor. The village also has a spacious library with activities for

all ages, art galleries, shops and a myriad of cultural events. Homes that have been dilapidated for years are being purchased and remodeled. “The area between Route 28 and Lower County Road, between Depot Street and Division Street will be seeing the greatest impact on market value, in my opinion, since it is walkable to both the beach and the village,” says Chatelain.

58 Depot St., Dennisport Price: $449,000 Bed/bath: 3/2.5 Square footage: 1,904 Lot acreage: 0.19   Listing Agent: Amanda Howey Realty Executives; 774-722-7804 The three-bedroom colonial located on Depot Street is a short walk to beaches on Nantucket Sound and Main Street. The homeowner, Helen Blanchard, raves about the village. “I love my morning walks, which take in the beach and salty air; it’s so serene,” says Blanchard. “We have really seen some developments in Dennisport in the last couple of years, some great local retail and gift stores and wonderful restaurants. It is increasing housing demand in this area. It’s a great place to live.”




BREWSTER/HARWICH Brewster and Harwich cover large swaths of the Cape, but the neighborhoods  close to the lakes and ponds are often missed. According to Chatelain, the real estate market steers toward ocean beaches and coastal views, but lakes and ponds have great value as well as  swimming, fish-

ing and boating—without the summer crowds. There is an area of Brewster and part of Harwich that boasts four ponds in close proximity: Sheep Pond, Seymour Pond, Hinckleys Pond and Long Pond— one of only three all-sport ponds on the Cape. This location is also a thoroughfare for the Cape Cod Rail Trail and a short drive or bike ride to Nickerson State Park.

This waterfront property, located in both Harwich and Brewster, sits on the edge of Black Pond, looks out over Long Pond, and is across the street from Seymour Pond. The home offers bright, open living spaces with views from most rooms and a wraparound deck for entertaining.

AUGUST 2017 


591 Pleasant Lake Ave. Harwich Price: $598,000 Bed/bath: 3/2 Square footage: 1,885 Lot acreage: 0.97   Listing agent: Patrick Moore Leighton Realty 508-896-1222



This bright and cheery Cape, located south of Route 28, has access to Forest Beach and Nantucket Sound and has deeded access to Taylor’s Pond. There is a short path to the pond for fishing, boating and kayaking. The home is also about a mile from Cockle Cove Beach and Forest Beach.

SOUTH CHATHAM South Chatham is Chatham, but without the steep price tag. There isn’t a lot of waterfront, but the more modest neighborhoods have access to beaches, ponds and parks. Even when properties are not on the water, they are not far, and a short bike or car ride is all that is required. A car ride away is Chatham’s Main Street, a bustling hub, especially in the summer,   where you’ll find a variety of shops and restaurants as well as summer concerts and activities. Although it may seem like a draw to be close to the center of town, being

a little further away means avoiding the heavy traffic in the warmer months.

TEATICKET In Teaticket, a village in Falmouth, and a majority of East Falmouth, you’ll find homes with water views on salt water ponds that lead to Nantucket Sound. If homes do not have water views, the beach is nearby. Most neighborhoods are lined with sidewalks-a rarity on the Cape. These neighborhoods are

also affordable. In addition, the homes have access to downtown Falmouth, where there are restaurants, bakeries, ice cream parlors and shops. Mashpee Commons is not a far drive for more shopping and dining, and Woods Hole is a short trip for a stroll or a trip to the Woods Hole Science Aquarium.

This contemporary three-bedroom Cape is located in Dexter Mill Estates, an upscale waterside community of single-family homes. There’s a boat launch with access to Vineyard Sound, a dinghy dock, tennis courts and also views of Great Pond. The home has three bedrooms, including a first-floor master as well as a two-car garage. It is only 1.5 miles to downtown Falmouth and close to both beaches and golf courses.

“The town of Bourne and its four Cape villages, Bourne Village, Monument Beach, Pocasset and Cataumet—each special in their own way—all share beautiful western perspectives and incredible sunsets,” says Monique Ward of Kinlin Grover Real Estate. Ward has lived in the area for more than 40 years. “We swim in the warmer waters of Buzzards Bay and enjoy easy boating access and quicker trips to Martha’s Vineyard and the unspoiled Elizabeth Islands stretching beyond Woods Hole,” she says. Pocasset is located in the

ern part of Bourne. It isn’t far down on the Cape, so for this reason it tends to be overlooked. Since it’s only a 10-minute drive to the Bourne Bridge and a 20-minute drive to the Sagamore Bridge, Pocasset is a commuter’s summer haven. Properties with ocean views and close proximity to the beach in this area are much less expensive than the rest of the Cape. If a home is purchased as a summer oasis for a weekAUGUST 2017 

ender, it’s an easy drive and it beats fighting traffic to and from the Lower Cape. CAPE COD MAGAZINE


“Everything is designed to slow you down so that you cannot rush through the house,” says designer and homeowner Duane Smith. The home’s main entrance is located at the back of the house, which forces you to take a longer walk and appreciate the natural surroundings.

hen Duane Smith and his husband, Stefane Barbeau, bought a plot of land in Wellfleet after having fallen in love with the Cape during visits with friends, they were inspired to design a house in line with the Bauhaus style of architecture. “We love how serene and secluded Wellfleet is,” says Smith. “We love nature, the kettle ponds and the different environments.” An industrial designer who heads his own design firm Hundred Mile House in Palm Springs, Calif., Smith had studied sustainable architecture through the Bauhaus tradition. When he and Barbeau found the land with marsh and water views, he says, “We thought we could do something amazing there and have fun.” They learned more about the Modernist tradition on Cape Cod, including the efforts of the Cape Cod Modern Trust, founded in 2007, whose goal is to document and restore the iconic, mid-century houses found scattered in the hills and dunes of the Outer Cape. Smith and Barbeau, who divide their time between Palm Springs and Wellfleet, sought to uphold the Modernist directive of design connected to nature. Their design was inspired by the nearby historic modernist homes and other buildings designed in the 1940s and 1950s by Marcel Breuer and Walter Gropius.




Homeowners Duane Smith and Stefane Barbeau once owned their own design and housewares center in Boston. Some of their furnishings are on display, as is their sense of playfulness, seen in crutches that become 3-D wall art and a chair cushion made from rag dolls.

AUGUST 2017 



Glass doors open up the house to the trees and the sky. The design of the upside-down house—with living spaces on the second floor and the bedroom level below—was inspired by nearby historic modernist homes in Wellfleet and the Bauhaus style of architecture. Their dog, Sally, enjoys the abundance of natural light.



“We wanted a lot of glass to open up the house to the trees and sky,” says Smith. Configured as an upside-down house, with the living spaces on the second floor and the bedroom level below, the house has an extended and exposed exterior frame with the receded upperlevel block defined by wooden walls and abundant sliding glass doors. This block rests on a projecting cement foundation, which encases the lower level. Like many of its modernist predecessors, the roofs are flat. The recessed design allows an upperlevel patio, one of several outdoor rooms, to extend off of the living room. Though the sea AUGUST 2017

is in view, the house is surrounded by the Cape’s other predominant landscape feature—scrub pines—and it is to this that the exterior walls answer. “We wanted to warm up the outside,” Smith explains, “so the walls are clad in black-sealed mahogany stained with Creocote, a more eco-friendly form of creosote. The black wood picks up the color of the surrounding pine trees and disappears into the woods.” Mahogany stairs lead from the outside to the entrance, and the hall is bounded

by an interior concrete wall. Behind the wall’s sliding doors are a powder room and a large storage space. “The driving principle,” says Smith, “was to have outside walls but as few walls inside as possible.” The powder room/ storage module, he says, helps to define the living spaces. On the other side are an open kitchen, dining room and living area. This level is designed for utility and circulation, as well as for play. The kitchen is meant to handle the cooking for groups, large and small, and was created on a budget. Cabinets are by IKEA, and the counter is oak butcher block. “We splurged on appliances,” says Smith, pointing to the Thermador range and refrigerator, Fisher & Paykel dishwasher and Kohler fixtures found throughout the home. After a communal dinner, guests might play Pictionary on the large chalkboard wall in the dining room. “It’s also a great thing to occupy the kids,” says Smith. Inspired by the minds that brought the Modernist movement to Cape Cod, Smith, Barbeau and their friends create art and furnishings during their stay, which then become part of the décor. Smith and Barbeau once owned their own design and housewares center in Boston called Vessel, and some of their furnishings are on display, as is their sense of playfulness, seen in crutches that become a 3-D wall art, a coat rack that is a sculpture and a chair cushion made from rag dolls. A closet filled with art supplies stands ready to encourage everyone’s creativity. The first-floor spaces are bright, drawing in natural light and breezes from the sliding glass CAPE COD MAGAZINE

doors. The lower-bedroom level draws its light from the stairwell as well as from a Zen-like courtyard alley defined by a cement wall with abundant bamboo growing alongside its border. Every space on this level has eight-foot-by-eightfoot sliders leading to this courtyard. “Even the shower has a glass door,” says Smith, “so you can open it and feel like you are showering outside.” Both levels enjoy the cooling benefits of polished concrete floors, chosen for their low maintenance and warmed by radiant heat in winter. The exposed foundation that defines the lower level was designed to “look like a big sea wall,” Smith says. “We wanted it to feel beachy without being typical Cape Cod beachy.” 76



Every space on the lower-bedroom level has sliders leading to the Zen-like courtyard. “Even the shower has a glass door,” says homeowner Duane Smith, “so you can open it and feel like you are showering outside.”

The house is still a work in progress, with the couple and their friends tackling additional home projects with each stay. This is evident in the plywood stairs, which will eventually be covered in black linoleum. These long, shallow steps serve one crucial function: to slow down both the ascent and descent. Smith points out that even the access to these stairs— located around the kitchen and through the entry in a circular pattern—is meant to thwart rushing. “Everything is designed to slow you down so that you cannot rush through the house.” He demonstrates this as the guiding

principle of the home’s design: “The main entrance is on the second level at the back of the house, which also makes you travel a bit from the driveway, through the lot, and around the house, so you are forced to appreciate the natural surroundings.” And in the end, this is why people flock to the Cape—whether dwelling in a Cape cottage or a Modernist bungalow—to retreat and relax while experiencing the power of nature. The Wellfleet house is available for weekly rentals year round. For more information, visit

TEXT BY JOSEPH PORCARI PHOTOGRAPHY BY MELANIE MCGRAW John Derian sits in the “yellow room” of his Provincetown home on a sofa he designed for Cisco Brothers, a hip furniture company in Los Angeles. His home is filled with antiques and flea-market finds, including a 19th-cenutry balustrade lamp and a vintage working phone.


he view of Provincetown Harbor from the front sitting room of John Derian’s Commercial Street home is perfectly framed; it’s a lot like the composition of one of his scenic decoupage platters on display in his adjacent shop. The house is a showcase for Derian’s signature mix of antique and flea market finds combined with upholstered furniture of his own design. It is a retreat from his busy life as a designer and merchant in New York City, in a setting where he can slow down, and where, he says, “nature rules.” Derian’s success consists of three celebrated stores in New York’s East Village, along with a seasonal store in Provincetown, a studio producing handmade decoupage objects sold in hundreds of stores and catalogs worldwide, and design collaborations with companies



ranging from Target to France’s Astier de Villate and L.A.’s hip furniture company, Cisco Brothers. Derian’s stores and homes have been featured in Vogue, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Architectural Digest, Elle Decor and Vanity Fair. And now there’s a dazzling coffee-table book, “John Derian Picture Book,” with a foreword by Vogue’s Anna Wintour. It’s a collection of 350 of Derian’s favorite images—18th- and 19th-century engravings, lithographs and ephemera he has used in his decoupage. The store in Provincetown is a miniature version of his three in the East Village, with the same quirky collection of ceramics, glass, antiques and textiles selected by Derian for their “beauty, charm, and wit” and connections to the past. Shopping in the store feels more like combing through the attic treasures of a globe-trotting

and eccentric great aunt and uncle. There are quilts made from vintage saris, the stunning paper flowers of Livia Cetti, Carrara marble fruit, batiked linens by John Robshaw and linocut prints by Hugo Guinness. There’s also a large collection of Derian’s decoupage, including some pieces designed exclusively for the Provincetown store—views of the town, the bay and 19th-century maps.

Recently, he created a scented candle in collaboration with Astier de Vilatte, named Provincetown. “It’s a little bit of all the scents of the sea and land, mostly inspired by my walks in the woods,” says Derian. Derian had always loved the Cape, but hadn’t been looking to buy a house. As he puts it, “the house went looking for him.” He

discovered the 18th-century captain’s house, adorned with early 19th-century Greek revival columns, during an impromptu day trip to Provincetown in 2006. There was a “for sale” sign in the front yard along with an “under agreement” sign. He fell in love with the house, especially the columns, and peered through the windows decorated with lace curtains. The house looked abandoned and he filmed a video of all four sides on his phone. Back in New York, Derian forgot about the house until a few months later. Footage of the video began to play spontaneously whenever he set his phone down. After several of these episodes, he searched online for Provincetown real estate, and the first photo to appear was the house. He called his agent; the house was back on the market and within a few weeks, it was his. Derian has been called a “designer superstar” and the “king of decoupage.” This self-described New England boy and native of Watertown has always “liked to make things and collect stuff.” As the youngest of six children, “I was left alone and able to explore my creativity,” he says. A visit to Brimfield when he was 15 generated a passion for antiques, and the pivotal moment was his discovery of a box of 19th-century books at a flea market in Salem in 1983. Inside were “two very colorful floral prints, like hidden treasures.” “Images speak to me,” says Derian, and he looks for “something personal or unintentional the artist or printmaker may have left be80


hind.” He tries to find something mysterious or nostalgic, capable of eliciting an emotional response in the viewer—whether it be a fragment of a wistful note written in elegant script, a doodle of a vase of flowers from an 18th-century scrapbook, a 19th-century child’s paper doll cutout, or the detail of a woman’s face. Derian has uncovered and rescued a world of images, which would otherwise be lost. Derian’s habit of making things steered him toward the neglected craft of reverse decoupage—the art of cutting and gluing images under glass. He quickly realized this was the ideal way to share his growing collection of printed images, and he began making plates, paperweights, platters and trays. The decoupage objects are made by a staff of 18 in Derian’s East Village studio. The images are reprinted in-house on acid-free paper, hand cut and arranged in a collage. Nature—the woods and ocean—is the source of Derian’s greatest inspiration. Botanical prints and other natural imagery are the basis of most of his designs. Derian says much of his inspiration comes from the Cape since he has visited the peninsula since he was a child. He enjoys all four seasons on the Cape: the serenity of winter; lilacs, spirea and mock orange in spring; beaches in the summer; mushrooms on woodland walks in the fall. Weather permitting, cycling, walking and swimming are year-round activities. He looks forward to a quick dip in the bay even in winter. Derian loves the natural beauty surrounding Provincetown— Beech Forest, Hatches Harbor, the dunes and the Truro ponds. He

coaxes his house guests onto bicycles as soon as they’re unpacked, guiding them through town to the breakwater, where they can linger, enjoy the view of the harbor, and “shed the city.” Like many other artists, he is drawn to the light in Provincetown—“It is magical and I’m in awe of it all the time.” 82

Over the Bridge burger with Vermont white cheddar on a brioche roll


The Burger Next Door Enter the pink Victorian on Sandwich’s Jarves Street, and you’ll be greeted by an atmosphere of reggae music, fine art and high-top tables. Once seated, your eyes will be drawn from the Mason jar candleholder filled with corn kernels to the metal tray in a passing waiter’s hand, atop which rests a beautifully plated cheeseburger and fries. Suddenly, you’re overcome by the feeling that you might not be on Cape Cod anymore. While the locally themed menu items reassure you that you didn’t accidentally leave town, your reaction is not uncommon. Describing about 20 customers who visited the Next Door Burger Bar during its first week in June, owner Christopher Wilson says, “They couldn’t believe they were in Sandwich.” If they were familiar with his other restaurant, the next-door (hence the name) Belfry Inn & Bistro, or the former Painted Lady, which was once housed in the burger bar space, they hopefully wouldn’t be as surprised by the quality of the food. Plus, as Wilson says, “Who doesn’t like a great burger?” Homemade with a blend of fresh ground chuck and short rib—which the menu guarantees comes from hormone- and antibioticfree cattle in the Northeast—each burger comes tender and juicy on a soft brioche bun. No-fuss diners will go for The Boardwalk, a simple eight-ounce burger without any fixings. A breakfast lover’s dream, The Butchers Burger is topped with Great Hill blue cheese, shaved Prosciutto, tomato and arugula, apple-smoked bacon and a sunny-side-up egg. And yes, there is a healthy option: The Healthy One, a bunless burger served with goat cheese, baby arugula and marinated heirloom tomato. Can’t-miss extras include the addicting truffle and Parmesan fries and homemade milkshakes, including alcoholic versions.—Lannan M.

Fish Stories New sushi restaurant 10 Yen is the talk of the town TEXT AND PHOTOGRAPHY BY MARINA DAVALOS


ushi lovers in Harwich Port rejoice: 10 Yen is here! Located on Main Street, the cozy spot became an instant hit as soon as it opened in the spring. Customers sit at the six-seat sushi bar and watch chef/owner Michael Jacek as he carves and serves up his favorite: fresh nigiri. “We sell nigiri by the piece, depending on what we have each day,” says Jacek. He makes rice rolls topped with raw fish using Spanish mackerel or bigeye, Bluefin or yellowfin tuna. Jacek finishes off each piece with a garnish of salmon roe or fresh wasabi. “I like to talk to my customers about what I’m making,” says Jacek, who got his start as a sushi apprentice at Inaho in Yarmouthport in 2005. He worked as a chef at the Ocean House in Dennisport and at Mac’s Seafood in Wellfleet before going into business for himself. He serves up classic sushi rolls, such as a spicy tuna or salmon deluxe roll, and the ever-popular California deluxe roll. His Tails in the Air roll is a shrimp tempura roll topped with

scallions, eel sauce and spicy mayo. “But I want to make clear, it’s not just me. We’re all like family here,” Jacek says of himself and his staff. Joining him in the front of the house is general manager and cocktail crafter Felipe Muñoz, who creates original, craft cocktails. The refreshing Ronin has vodka, lemon juice and matcha honey, topped with a fresh cucumber ribbon. “I pour the drink over the cucumber, to give it just a little of the cucumber flavor,” explains Muñoz. Chef Benjamin Swift and sous chef Chris Rugg are the powerhouses in the kitchen, cooking up delectables such as ginger soy pork belly Ramen noodles and vegetable gyoza: Japanese-style dumplings, pan fried and steamed, filled with roasted cabbage, mushrooms

and carrots. Spring pea soup with local mint crème-fraiche is a delight. Both Swift and Rugg agree that 10 Yen is like family. “I don’t even feel like it’s work. I get to come in and make beautiful food,” says sous chef Rugg, and they both agree on the merits of working in a small space. “It’s about quality over quantity,” says chef Swift. The six-seat sushi bar is first-come, first-serve for lunch, and reservationonly for dinner. A stand-up bar running the length of the restaurant provides standing room for eating and drinking, and take-out is popular. The interior was conceived, designed and built by Kevin Flynn of Kevin Flynn Timberworks, a master craftsman who has outfitted the interiors of other popular restaurants such as the Mad Minnow, located behind 10 Yen, and Fishermen’s View in Sandwich. “Michael and I collaborated closely about what he wanted and the way the space would work best for him. Each space is different,” says Flynn. He fashioned the sushi bar out of a pine slab, and being the most important part of the restaurant, Flynn says he made sure it would have a rustic yet upscale feel to it. “This is something you’d find in a city,” he adds. Jacek, who loves to educate people about sushi, says he wanted as little a barrier as possible between him and his customers. “I love to tell people about tuna,” he says. The passion for what he does is evident. “It’s important. It’s one of the last wild species, and if we’re not careful, we may not have it in the future.”

Now, That’s Italian!

“I’ve been cooking since I was big enough to stand by the stove,” laughs Chris Ricciardelli, owner of Ricciardelli’s, a new Italian restaurant in downtown Hyannis. His recipes have been passed down through his family for generations and include classics like pappardelle bolognese and veal saltimbocca. “We also have an Amalfi-style seafood special,” he says, with extra virgin olive oil bringing out the flavors of the fish. “My specialty, though, is my marinara sauce,” he says. “It’s gotta be perfect, otherwise what else is there?” Ricciardelli, whose family hails from Italy’s Amalfi Coast, and his wife, Kelly Thompson Ricciardelli, both grew up in Hyannis. Chris started in the restaurant business at the long-lived Hyannis restaurant The Paddock. “I was cooking there by the time I was 16. My dream was to open a restaurant, but I got scared and went into finance,” he says. After a 20-year career in banking, he’s returned from Wrentham to the Cape to pursue his dream. Guests can dine indoors or outside on the patio, which is perfect for people watching on Main Street.—Marina Davalos Ricciardelli’s, 575 Main St., Hyannis, 508-827-4539, AUGUST 2017

last word Turning the Page With Anne D. LeClaire BY LISA LEIGH CONNORS

Q: What was the inspiration behind your ninth novel, “The Halo Effect?” A: I was inspired by the documentary, “Divining the Human: The Cathedral Tapestries of John Nava,” about the creation of the saint tapestries for the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels in Los Angeles. The film has been called a “stunning insight into the connections between art, faith and the human community.” In the centuries-old artistic tradition, the artist John Nava used local people as models and what haunted me was the idea of how Nava must have been changed by the experience of seeing the ordinary people of his community as saints. Q: What were some of the challenges of writing this novel? A: The scope of the themes, such as how violence affects a community, a family, an individual. How have we become a nation where thousands of children are murdered each year? Each year. I mean, how does that happen with so little outcry? And how do we forgive? How do we heal? It took more than five years to write, and the research was extensive, everything from small and specific details—which are so important—to larger understandings. I am not Catholic and the idea of writing from a priest’s point of view was daunting. Fortunately, I connected with several members of the Catholic clergy who were willing to have lengthy conversations, not only about the specific questions I had, but also about larger questions of philosophy and faith and theme. Q: Although the book revolves around a tragedy, the story line is also about community and family and how people pull together during times of grief and crisis. What do you hope readers learn or take away from your book? A: I think we forget how personal grief is and how each person’s timetable is unique and should not be judged because it doesn’t 96



Anne D. LeClaire, a longtime resident of Chatham, is the author of nine novels, including “The Lavender Hour,” “Leaving Eden” and “Entering Normal.” Her latest, a murder-mystery called “The Halo Effect,” is her first novel in 10 years and her first book to reach No. 1 on the Amazon bestseller list. The story, set in Port Fortune, a small seaside town in Massachusetts, is about a couple whose lives are forever altered by the murder of their daughter. In the book, LeClaire explores the roles of faith and friendship and a community’s capacity to heal. Here, the author discusses the challenges of writing a heartbreaking yet hopeful novel, which took her more than five years to write.

Anne D. LeClaire, the emcee at WE CAN’s “A Day of Words, Wit and Wisdom” for the past 10 years, is handing over the reins to author Ann Hood next year. “I’m looking forward to the next adventure in my life,” says LeClaire. “This is a really bittersweet moment for me. But it is immeasurably sweet because my dearest friend will be stepping in for me.”

align with our own. Help can come from the most unexpected places. We need each other. We mustn’t forget that. Q: Do you consider yourself a religious person? A: I was raised in a religious tradition and it has a deep hold on me and forms the bedrock of my beliefs. But as I entered adulthood, I studied and learned about other traditions and I think my spiritual life is now informed not by dogma but by the universal teachings of many masters. Q: You mentioned recently that it wasn’t your intention to make the priest one of the main characters, but he kept coming back in your head and wouldn’t go away. Does this happen often with your books? A: All the time. The characters whisper—or yell—at me as I work and often disturb my dreams, especially when I don’t listen to them while awake. Q: Compared to your other novels, would you say this one is closest to your heart? A: Perhaps. I know for sure it is the most ambitious. “The Halo Effect,” by Anne D. LeClaire, Lake Union Publishing, 348 pages, $14.95 for paperback and $4.99 for eBook,
