As an author with much on my plate, I don’t often take the time to cook for myself. I’ve been craving a cajun pork loin with 15 bean soup, so I got everything out, prepared to demonstrate my culinary expertise. Spaghetti will be ready around 5 ish.
As the heady aroma of garlic, basil, tomatoes and a blend of savory spices settles around me, I’ll be immersed in the James Patterson Master Writing Class. I find classes, workshops and retreats to be a boon to my career in the opportunities presented working with the masters and learning from their expertise. It’s also a great reprieve from my own writing demands which, at present, include completion of two books by years end. Neither book involves cooking.
I do, however, write romantic comedy and YA novels. I’m eyebrow deep in the sequel to Life in a Nutshell (Life Bites), and a YA apocalyptic book, Phoenix Rising. Keep your eyes open for updates, which will be posted here.
