My name is Melissa and I’m the girl behind this website.
I love writing fun mystery stories that include lots of friends and baking and a mystery. I grew up reading cookbooks and Nancy Drew mysteries. My favorite room in any home is the kitchen (most homes don’t have a library!) and there’s few things more fun than getting together with a group of friends and cooking a meal together.
Life is full of strange blessings.
One of my writing mentors, Carol, told me: Truth is stranger than fiction.
It really is. And that turns out to be a good thing.
I’ve had my share of adventures in life. Many of them didn’t look like blessings at the onset. But slowly, surely, grace worked its way and these odd circumstances turned into a strange blessing, either becoming something beautiful in my life or in someone else’s life.
I write a lot about the junky stuff that happens to people. I try to keep things light hearted (because some laughter makes for a much richer life). And then I like to work out the messy stuff into a happy ending.
My writing won’t be winning any Pulitzer Prizes, but I hope to entertain you with a page-turning mystery, some laughter, some things to think about and a handful recipes to make with your own friends.
What about you?
If you’re here, I’m guessing that you enjoy a cozy mystery, modern chick lit and a few good recipes.
There’s a lot to explore. I feature recipes from the books, bits here and there on the writing process and a lot more about the joys of living life in the middle of a messy kitchen.
I’d love to meet you and get to know you a little. You can send me a message here.
I looooooove Pinterest and Instagram.
