The Kitchen Alchemist: How I Became My Own Food Scientist So My Kids Could Thrive with Anaphylactic Food Allergies

The creative process endures multiple changes on the way to the final product. Such was the case with my wonderful client, Frances Castelli, whose final book title is The Kitchen Alchemist: How I Became My Own Food Scientist So My Kids Could Thrive with Anaphylactic Food Allergies. Together, we decided that this most accurately reflects the content and spirit of her book, which will include 30 mouth-watering, allergy-free recipes. We’re in the process of deciding on the 30 that will make the cut, along with writing and editing the first half of the book, set for release in the fall of 2018.

In the meantime, Frances shares enticing photos of her exceptional culinary creations and valuable information on food allergies on her social media sites. Follow her on Twitter @KitchenAlchemBK and like her Facebook Page, The Kitchen Alchemist to stay informed and entertained.

 

I’ll post updates here as we get closer to the release date.

Art Imitates Life, Then Life Imitates Art: My Water Signs Happy Ending

Art Imitates Life, Then Life Imitates Art: My Water Signs Happy Ending

Ten years ago, I started writing my first novel Water Signs: A Story of Love and Renewal, after a visit with a psychic unleashed suppressed memories of my first and only love. To catch up on the back story behind the book, click on the Water Signs category of the blog.

In what I can only describe as the most magical moment of my life, two weeks ago I reconnected with the real life “Ken” in person. When I saw his smiling face at the door, my nervousness and apprehension melted way, replaced by a single, comforting thought: “I’m home.” Even though I’d always known in my heart and soul we were meant to be together, the human part of me felt a twinge of doubt as I waited for him to arrive; after all, we hadn’t seen each other in over 20 years.

But God’s timing is always perfect.

The second I laid eyes on him, I realized the happy ending I’d written a decade ago was unfolding according to a divine plan. He and I share an undeniable soul connection that sustained us through two decades of physical separation and has only grown stronger over time. Now that the reunion I fictionalized in the pages of Water Signs has materialized in the physical world, it is even more beautiful than anything I’d written back in 2008. My heart is bursting with love, joy, and gratitude…and at the same time, I’m filled with a peacefulness I’ve never experienced before. This man is my twin flame, my soul mate, my bashert.¬†Every morning, I wake up and thank God he has returned to me, though sometimes I still have to pinch myself to make sure I’m not dreaming.

As a longtime student of spiritual laws, including the Law of Attraction, and a member of Tasha Chen’s Science of Getting Rich Academy community, I realize now that by writing my love story and happy ending, I brought it into manifestation, with the help of God Almighty. I also know that my experience is a testament to trusting the process and His ingenious ways and sure methods…even when appearances are bleak and people who love you tell you to move on for your own sake. No matter how many times I temporarily lost hope or felt sad or missed him with an indescribable intensity, I always believed we’d find our way back to each other. And thanks to Tasha, I learned how to stay alert to “evidence,” or signs along the way.

In the next few months, I plan to release and launch a third edition of the book (once I’ve fulfilled some client obligations and projects) with an updated introduction, where I’ll include photos of the couple who inspired the characters of Ken and Madeline.¬†For now, I’m living fully in the present moment, enjoying every second of time he and I have to spend together.

To the Captain of My Heart, I’ll love you forever and I continually thank my God for you.
