The Dress, The SONS ~ Part 1

Aug 22, 2011 by

It is said never judge a book by its cover.

Wonder if you can judge it by its Table of Contents?

Let’s find out.  My new book, The Little Black Dress and the SONS of Thunder ~ Recipes On Life And Food, will be out shortly. It’s split into two sections, Part One details what we would call the “early years.” Part Two covers the last few.

Below is the intro to Part One, as well as the chapter titles to the “early years.”


There was a man, a journalist by profession,

a writer by passion. And he was alone.

One day he met her and soon they married.

She became his Little Black Dress.

Together they traveled across the country.

They started a family – the first Son of Thunder,

followed a couple of years later

by yet another Son of Thunder.

Together, they climbed mountains,

yet also fell into valleys.

And all that time The Dress kept telling him

to follow his passion.

And finally he did.
