I grew up outside of Los Angeles, California. My mother loved to tell a story of me when I was three years old. I would combine big bags of flour and sugar with water on the floor. She was convinced I was preparing to make cakes. Looking back, I believe these were my first baby steps toward the hospitality industry. I have always loved the alchemy of the creative process.
During these writing years my life has changed so much. I have lost my mother who was an avid reader and so dearly wanted to sit in a quiet room and read my book cover-to-cover – smiling and laughing at Eve’s antics. I have also fought breast cancer twice and have worked very hard to not let it define me. Knowing I needed to get back to this project proved to be the prescription that kept me moving forward and excited to wake up each morning.
I want to encourage everyone going through a tough patch to plough ahead and I hope you glean something from my story that lets you smile, brings you laughter, and warms your heart.
