What’s your latest book all about?
“The Sweet Adventures of Henry P. Twist” is a faerie tale fantasy about a master pastry chef who rediscovers his youth in a land of faeries, myth, magic and the most scrumptious sweets ever imagined. It’s like Willy Wonka meets UP!
How did you get the idea of writing this book?
The idea came to me many years ago. My daughter, then 5 (she is now 31), came to visit me in Los Angeles. At bedtime she asked me to read her a bedtime story. Seeing that I had no children’s books on hand to fulfill such a request, I quickly launched into an impromptu bedtime tale that involved a pastry chef, faeries and elves, and loads of sweets.
