AuthorBuzz: Food and Family, Appalachian Gothic, and Man-Made Coincidences

Dear Reader:

The Recipe Box is inspired by my grandmothers’ beloved recipe boxes and filled with treasured family desserts like cherry chip cake and peach-blueberry slab pie. We all have old, flour-flecked, handwritten recipe cards with treasured recipes, ones we ask our moms, grandmas and sisters to make because they capture beautiful memories. Like a favorite family dessert, The Recipe Box is filled with love and sweetness, things we could use more of these days. Richard Paul Evans calls the novel “a touching tribute to the women and food that unite us and connect our past to the present.” A perfect book for readers and foodies of every age!

I’m giving away five books, but ANYONE who enters will receive a beloved family recipe! Email to win!

Much love,


Dear Reader,

Gods of Howl Mountain transports you into a world of folk healers, moonshine runners, and serpent-handlers in the high country of 1950s North Carolina. Upon returning home from the Korean War, whiskey bootlegger Rory Docherty and his legendary healer grandmother Granny May must pit themselves against dangerous mountain clans, revenue agents, and the secrets of their own dark past.

Says Jeff Zentner (THE SERPENT KING): “If you loved…anything by Ron Rash, you’ll love this book. Appalachian Gothic at its absolute finest.”

Dear Reader,
Sometimes, fate is just another well-executed mission…
The Coincidence Makers is the story of Guy, Emily & Eric, whose job is creating coincidences – happenings that look like random events but that will cause people to change their own lives.
I invite to join me in a journey about fate, free-will and above all, about love, in a book Kirkus magazine called “unpredictable and heartfelt” and that is now being translated into over a dozen languages.

I’m giving away five books. Write to win!
