While attending the University of Illinois in Chicago, Whitney Dineen was discovered by a local modeling agent and began an unexpected career as a plus-size Ford model. She modeled in New York City before moving to Los Angeles with her husband.

When she wasn’t modeling, she was in the kitchen, baking delights to share with friends. Soon, her friends began asking her to send baskets of her wonderful candies and cookies to business associates, agents and production studios. Word spread like wildfire, and the rest, as they say, is history. Whitney’s sensational creations are still in great demand by her loyal celebrity clientele.

During “The Hollywood Years,” Whitney was bitten by the writing bug and started creating characters that are inspired

I was motivated by anger and wanted to portray a stereotypical sleazy agent (which mine wasn't, I was just mad) so I started to write She Sins one way but almost immediately the story took on a mind of its own and went in another direction. I'm glad it did. I like it much better like this. xo(less)

New Year’s resolutions don’t hold the same glamor for me they once did. In days of yore, when I was relatively fresh and naïve, I was certain that losing ten pounds, ridding myself of cellulite and maintaining my hair color were the magic bullets of fulfillment. Ten years ago I made my living as a plus-size model and budding television personality. Ten years ago things like ten pounds, cellulit... Read more of this blog post »

"It's been a while that I have read "The Reinvention of Mimi Finnegan", so it was a nice surprise - for me, at least :) - that "Kindred Spirits" was going to tell Richard's story. Yes, THAT Richard.

The story was sweet, funny, sometimes heart-wrenc..." Read more of this review »

“His name is Richard Bingham and he’s an advertising executive at Bingham, Charles & Alexander. And yes, he is the Bingham in the title. He says, “I loved watching you eat your lunch. You really savored the flavors.”
I am immediately mortified by his comment as I can only imagine what I must have looked like. I get an image in my head of a phone sex commercial for 1-800 eat-this. I grimace and beg, “Please tell me you were not watching me eat.”
But he just smiles, “I couldn’t take my eyes off of you. That’s why I brought the desserts over. I can die a happy man if you’ll just take one bite of each of them for me.”
Whitney Dineen

“By the time Kevin picks me up and we get seated at the restaurant, I’m so famished I’m ready to eat my napkin. Instead, I point across the room and say, “Look, doesn’t that girl look like Becky Brady from high school?” And as he turns to take a gander, I grab a roll and stuff it into my purse. I try the trick once more and by the time I have secreted away two rolls with pats of butter, I excuse myself to use the ladies room. I sit on the toilet and devour them both in seconds. They are the best thing I’ve ever eaten and I would kill to have the remaining two here in the bathroom with me. Yet once the initial euphoria of my crime wears off, I immediately feel guilty.”
Whitney Dineen

“Snuggling into my lumpy pillow again, it occurs to me that I’m laying down. Then it occurs to me that the arm rest between us must have been lifted because I am in fact lying on Elliot’s lap and the hard pillow that I’m snuggling my face into isn’t actually a pillow at all. And the reason it keeps getting harder is because… hello! Elliot Fielding is not as immune to me as he would like us both to believe. Before I sit up, I purposefully put my hands under my cheek and cop a brazen feel. Then I push up and stare into the eyes of the man who has allowed me to sleep on him for the past two hours.”
