Today, I’m talking about: being vulnerable and honest about some of my experience with cancer in an article I’ve written for the Ulman Foundation, reflecting on finding my words again and using writing as a form of catharsis (not only in this article but in my novels as well). I’m also sharing an update on my #TheLeftoverBride revision which includes letting the ending of #TheLeftoverBride simmer a little and more google searches. 🙂  

I am also reading two excerpts from my revision in the past week:

CHAPTER 2 – RYAN

I still can’t believe I’m back on the East Coast. In Swan Cove. The town that’s filled with some of my best memories… and some of my worst. My plan was to go straight to my parents’ but I had to stop at the bakery. After all, Mom loves their lemon pie. And what type of son who hasn’t come home in over ten years wouldn’t get his mom her favorite dessert if he could? Nothing to do with the breathtaking redhead staring up at me like I stomped all over her heart. My jaw clenches with years of regrets, remorse and fucked-up chances.

Excerpt from #TheLeftoverBride

He must have taken lessons on how to master his puppy eyes from Fluffy Napoleon because even with the gust of arctic air sending shivers up and down my spine, I melt at the way he looks at me.

Episode 25

Today, a short recap about our much-needed vacation: we went to Vermont (beautiful!) and ate delicious food including gluten free pancakes that has become our favorite pancake (Will Flour Pancake Mix is available here: https://www.willflour.com/).

I also discuss the reasons why I have decided to slightly postpone the release of #TheLeftoverBride (or should I say extend the pre-order period).

Plus get an update on my revision and what I think is important for the character growth of one of my characters. 🙂

Those pancakes are the best both the Chemical Engineer and I ever had. You can get the pancake mix here.
