I'm thrilled to announce the birth of my new book, Mu Shu Mac & Cheese. "It interweaves the subtle relationships of family with food and Chinese culture, with liberal dashes of humor."
You can order it here.
I hope readers will find it to be a lighthearted escape from the trials we're living through during this pandemic.
More on the book:
With her household the focus of a TV reality show, food writer Elaine’s professional dreams are about to come true. But her dominating Chinese mother-in-law's unexpected arrival blends the filming with more than a dash of culture clash. All too soon, Ma wants to chaperone Elaine’s son to prom and otherwise brings the household's pot to a full boil.
Mu Shu Mac & Cheese explores how far a corn-grown foodie will go to save her family's happy life from being sliced and diced. It’s Julia Child meets My Big Fat CHINESE Wedding.
It was inspired by my marrying into a Chinese family.
Having two books out in one summer is remarkable. It took me a long time to decide to self publish. Now I'm happy I did!
You'll find a photo of my mother-in-law in the book, an inspiration for this story. If you decide to read it, please let me know what you think!
Thank you to my son, Zach, for designing the cover for both of my novels!
Love from the Inkpot!
