Okay, everyone, I think you know the drill by now. I am on a quest to include all the fun things I didn’t keep in my novel Grace Group. Namely, the recipes. Now you may ask…why were there recipes in the book, or perhaps, why didn’t you keep them if you like them so much that you keep blogging about them? Well, read on to find the answers.
This is like cake and cheesecake all rolled into one. The original recipe was garnered out of a simply ingenious book called ‘The Cake Mix Doctor’ (Volume 1) that my super cool friend Tara, a forensic CSI who also is a terrific baker, told me about.

What the heck, one might ask (or did, if one were a book coach) is the relation between my fiction and my blogs, who am I as an author, and WHAT am I trying to do with my writing anyway?
How should I know? I haven’t had a decent night’s sleep in five years!
I’ll be writing more about this later, but wanted to share the big news that I’ll be launching Grace Group in Yorba Linda, California. Although Penticton, British Columbia is where I grew up, Yorba Linda is like my second hometown. It’s where I met so many of the people pivotal in my life’s journey. I …
Women of my generation were taught that we can have it all, but no one told us how hard it would be once we got it!
Wow…it’s not very often that I’m at a loss for words, but today… Not only is my book now available, but people are actually buying it! It’s the most amazing feeling ever! Thank you so much for supporting me!! You all are just the best! Grace Group
I don’t compare a lot of things to having #kids anymore, especially after #twins. But a #bookrelease kind of is. Kind of.
