Fresh Raspberry Curd & Vanilla Whipped Cream Pavlova

You know you’ve hit a new low when, since you’re client will not make time to meet with you, you are forced to watch random YouTube videos of his speeches so you can cobble together something moving and inspirational, and fit for print.

It’s always the famous folks.

"These people are a mix of ignorance and arrogance. I have so much contempt for them. Who would want to read anything by them, ever?"

-One of my ghostwriting partners, about the people we are writing for right now.

Sigh. It’s not a good sign when you want to punch your clients in the face. Will this ghostwriting ever end? I should just write that damn screenplay I plotted last year and skewer them all. (Names changed to protect the not-so-innocents’ bullshit image, of course.)


Lil pattern I did for the folks at Moonlight Market, should be out in the next year on some bedding!

"It’s a book to be savored and enjoyed from the sweet, light beginning to the subtle middle notes, which culminate in a refreshing, delicious finish." — Publishers Weekly

You can’t be rushed when you’re making wine. You have to give it patience and care, and be willing to accept it for whatever its chemicals and nature deem it will become. You can make adjustments here and there, to be sure, but nature will ultimately dictate the outcome. There are some things you simply cannot force. A great wine, made with love and care, is one of them.

New York-based wine critic Thomas Baldwin can make or break careers with his column for Taste Magazine. But when his publisher orders him to spend a year profiling rising stars of California’s wine country and organizing a competition between the big name wineries of Napa and the smaller artisan wineries of Sonoma, his world gets turned upside-down by an enigmatic young winemaker who puts art before business.

Sotto Voce is the story of love and wine, and how both require patience, passion, an acceptance of change—and an understanding that sometimes, you have to let nature take its course.
