My Writing Life

We interrupt this food blog for a tiny bit of narcissism…

You know an awful lot about me at this point: My life as a fat chick. My career trajectory. My inability to decorate baked goods in anything less than an embarrassing fashion. It’s possible you’re a little sick of me.

If you are, I apologize for this next sentence. But if you think there might be a little bit more you’d like to know, here’s a new addition to the Official Debbie Literature: an interview with me about my life as a writer, by Sarah Caron of Sarah’s Cucina Bella, for She Knows. True story: I did not set out to write a cookbook for new parents. To find out what I did intend, I’m afraid you’ll just have to click through.

And as long as we’re playing All About Me, Babble just posted an excerpt from the chapter on galactagogues, foods that increase your supply of breast milk. If you ever wondered about my boobs (come on, you know you did), you’ll find out everything you ever wanted to know right there.

Thank you for your forbearance. Turns out publishing a book requires a ridiculous amount of blowing one’s own horn.

    First of all, your baked goods always look great to me. Come on, how am I supposed to reference you as an authority if you’re saying you’re not any good at it!!

    Also, my favorite type of fiction is fiction with food in it. I like memoirs with food in them too. Just in case you were wondering if there’s an audience for that non-cookbook writing…and I’ll love you even more if you put recipes in that foodie fiction. Hint. Hint.

    Aww, thanks, guys! I feel all squishy inside now. In a good way.

    And you blow that horn with both grace & humor. Wishing you much abundance & greater fandom every day!
