Hi Sandy,

So sorry for the very belated answer. I never received notification from Goodreads that questions were waiting.

How fun that you were able to see Ashland. It has a population of about 20,000 and Jules references that in the books. Although, you're right. For my fictional version of the town I condense a lot of the action into the plaza, OSF campus, and Lithia Park. I love the idea of creating a map! And, I'm getting ready to start rolling out some short videos on my social media that show the real versus imagined versions of Ashland. Happy reading!(less)

Hi Cat,

So sorry, I'm just seeing these questions for the first time now. I grew up baking with both of my parents as well as grandmother and aunts. Everything I know is self-taught. I'm not a trained pastry chef, and while my recipes usually taste great they never look professional. You know, like lopsided cakes ;-) Because Jules is an artisan baker I do a LOT of research when working on a book. I've spent countless hours watching true pastry chefs at work. I have a good friend who is an incredible (and professional) baker who has allowed me to document her process. It's been wonderful to meet real pastry chefs and have them impart their wisdom and tips. Hopefully it brings the baking to life in the books! Thanks for the question, and happy baking! (less)
