Dating Maggie (My Book Blurb)

Did you enjoy Bridget Jones's Diary or Sex and the City? If so, my book Dating Maggie may be right up your reading alley:

When Maggie’s 25th birthday rolls around she makes herself a promise. She will get a boyfriend and an acting gig by her next birthday. If it doesn’t happen, she will break up with tinsel town for good.

At least she’s got a cool day job as a movie studio tour guide. Her best friend Kate is also pretty great. Skinny botoxed blondes, traffic jams and sunshine have even kind of grown on her. She just yearns for more. 

With renewed determination she decides to try a new dating app. She thinks it will give her plenty of fodder for her dating vlog. Then out of the blue she meets Brad, at a catering job. He’s cute and an actor too. She sees great potential in him.

At the same time, she befriends Cliff, a handsome rancher she met on one of her tours. He’s just in town for a wedding but lives in Maggie’s hometown of Portland. Once he learns about her dating experiences, he decides to keep in touch to ask her for dating advice. 

Finally a promising audition comes her way and things seem to be falling into place. Just when life is starting to feel as warm as the California sun-life throws her some unexpected curveballs. As a result, she’s forced to make some hard choices. There’s a good chance her life may go in a direction she never would have dreamed of.

Cake Mix Cobbler

When I need a break from writing, I bake! We have peaches on our tree and frozen berries. This is the perfect recipe for using both. Versions of this recipe are all over the internet. This is my version that is tweaked a little to use less cake mix to make it more of a crumble than a cake.

Here is the recipe:

Peach/Berry Cobbler

Grease 8X8 pan

3-4 cups of fresh or frozen peaches and berries
1 1/4 cups of yellow cake mix
1/4 cup of melted butter

Put the fruit in the pan and sprinkle the cake mix over the top.
Drizzle the butter over the top of the cake mix.

Bake for 45 minutes at 375.

If you have super tart fruit, like blackberries, feel free to toss them with sugar before adding the topping. I find peaches are sweet enough and don't need the added sugar. We like to serve it with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.

Bon Apetit!


Shades of Sydney

Sydney West enjoys sampling summer boys, but this year, one refuses to be a one-night stand… Twenty-one-year-old Sydney doesn’t believe in relationships.

That is until she meets gorgeous local surfer Jason King at the beach…
When Jason fails to flirt—or even give her a second glance—she decides something must be wrong with him, and it’s safer to stay away. But when Sydney and Jason’s best friends hook up and become Malibu’s hottest couple, they are forced to spend more time together than either of them cares for. Armed with a sharp tongue, Sydney works to keep Jason at bay…
In a moment of weakness, Sydney lets her guard down and confides in Jason, realizing he’s more than just a hot guy—he’s also a friend. And when Sydney’s need for a summer boy results in her falling into bed with Jason, despite her better judgment, she run…
