Thank you, Readers and Reviewers!

My publicist (her name is Jane) asks me to please not read book reviews.  “Let me worry about those things,” Jane says. That’s a tough request to agree to, naturally. Although I’m doing my best to take Jane’s advice, The Secret Spice Cafe Trilogy are my debut novels, so I can’t help but peek once in a while.

Today, however, I got an email from her to which she attached the graphic above. “Go ahead and look,” she wrote. Both Cooking for Ghosts and Spells and Oregano have achieved the above ratings, from real readers and reviewers — not just, you know, from my favorite aunt or my best friend. 

So, thank you. Thank you to those who are reading, for taking the time out of your busy life to read and review, and for choosing these novels. I put much thought and work into them, along with lots of love. (Not to mention magic. And a beautiful, genuinely haunted ship.) Nonetheless, knowing how many wonderful books there are to choose from, I’ve kept my expectations realistic. 

So, yay! How happy-making it is to be able to post this lovely graphic.  I’ve got one more book in this trilogy to finish, and I must say that, thanks to you, I’m at it today with a renewed impetus.  


Note: if you are the creator of this beautiful painting of the RMS Queen Mary, please contact me, and let me know your name, so we can credit you. This work is out there on the internet with no name on it, and you deserve recognition for it.
