If you didn’t know, my husband Brad and I are published authors! When we got married over ten years ago, neither of us probably would have imagined we’d have our own books under our own names someday, and yet here we are!
After a few years of documenting my keto journey on Instagram, Callisto Media reached out to see if I’d be interested in authoring a cookbook full of my dairy-free keto recipes. This was a real dream come true, and I jumped at the opportunity! I’ve had so many ideas for different dishes throughout my life, inspired by friends and family, and it was wonderful to collect those inspirations and present them. I will never forget going through in-vitro fertilization all while sending the final drafts to my publisher! The Dairy-Free Keto Cookbook was published in 2018 and is full of recipes to help you on your keto journey. From appetizers to entrees to side dishes and yes, even desserts – there is something for everyone.
Brad also has two books! His first book, Reflections: An Oral History of Twin Peaks, is all about his favorite TV show, Twin Peaks. He literally spent years talking to dozens and dozens of people who helped make the show a reality, and somehow weaved it all into a story of its own. He spoke with everyone from one of the co-creators, to its main stars (Kyle MacLachlan and Michael Ontkean) all the way to the fine folks who swept the floors after filming was done. His first book was so popular, it got published in three other languages.
We watch a lot of TV at nighttime, which is maybe why Brad wrote another book about a tv show, China Beach: A Book About a TV Show About a War. China Beach took Brad over four years of work and research to complete, and also documents some of our trip to Vietnam while we were in the thick of our infertility journey. He talked to literally everyone from the show, as well as Vietnam veterans and nurses who worked on the front lines. Carlton Cuse (who co-created LOST!) wrote a very special foreword for the book.
Since our house is full of friendly competition, I need to get going on my second book before Brad writes a third! I hope you will check out our books, and if you already have, let me know what you think in the comments. Your support means the world to our family.
