Featured here is her book: Mystic Capers.

(I must say I love this cover, Grace. I want to pick it up and eat…ummm…read it!)

Here is the blurb:

Ginger Farnsworth grew up in the ’70’s. Her challenges were not like those of her peers. She was brilliant, bubbly, and very busy with life. She had time for cheerleading, dance/flag team, homework, and special projects at school, including catering the National Honor Society banquet. She gave 100% of herself to whatever she did. Ginger was always everyone else’s champion. In spite of her parents’ nagging, she didn’t date. There were no serious relationships growing up. In her confident, mature midlife…a simple business card at an outdoor market changed her life forever.

Excerpt from MYSTIC CAPERS

“And it is my great pleasure to introduce world renowned Executive Chef, Henri Choinard, Director of the famous French School of Culinary and Pastry Arts,  who will do the honors of presenting this year’s winner of the prestigious Donovan Award for overall excellence.” Peter Hammond began.

“This year has been so exciting! There have been so many five star experts who have won this award over the years, and the winner this year is another who far surpasses the meaning of ‘pastry chef’.” Peter turned his attention to the audience, acknowledging the entrants who had given their best shot at what was tossed their way this week. He nodded and continued, “I wish all of the contestants the very best luck.

“Now, I will turn this over to Henri for the award presentations.” Peter announced. Peter, who never had a hair out of place, who looked like a million bucks in his customary black tux had been the emcee for these local pastry/baking/food competitions for years and took as much pride in the winners as the winners themselves.

He owned two Five Star restaurants and a ribs place in Acorn Hills. Peter was a well-known, well-respected chef himself and loved the spotlight whenever he could be in it. He was the type of a person who could smile and you instantly saw the little glitter shine from one of his teeth!”
