What Happened To My Cream?

I am just over one month away from the official release of my second novel, No Cream In The Middle. This book is the second installment in what will eventually be a three part book series. So, what does the title actually mean? This is the most popular question I’ve been getting since I launched the pre-sale for my book. The cream is the good part. The middle of the Oreo. The softest part of a cake. The richest, most savory part of any experience. This is the place that Cookie thought she finally reached in life, after my first novel Fortune Cookie. However, things take another unexpected series of turns in No Cream In The Middle. Chelsea, Cookie’s sister, has secrets of her own that she’s holding. Jealousy, loss and cheating turn Cookie’s world upside and makes her paranoid of whoever she encounters. 

Check out an excerpt of No Cream In The Middle below. There’s only one week left (until June 9th) to get your pre sale copy before the official release date on July 7th. 


“Chile, if you want the reading I need the name. My name does not matter. I don’t have to give you my name and it’s actually none of your business,” she said.

“Uh oh, watch out Cookie. She’s a feisty one. Well, let’s get started, shall we? The name is Sheila,” she said.

“Ah Sheila. Ha. Funny. I had an ex-husband who cheated on me with a woman named Sheila. Never liked the name since. But I’m sure you’re a fine, upstanding young woman. Give up your left hand dear,” the old woman said. Cookie couldn’t help but look down at the floor when she heard the woman’s comment about Sheila and her ex-husband cheating on her. It all seemed funny to her now. She fought the rising smile that was forming at the corners of her mouth.

“Hmmm, I’m seeing love. It’s blinding. A new love. You’re about to get married or either you’ve just gotten married within the last couple of months,” she said.

“Well I did just get engaged, but not married just yet. I am in love though. My fiancé is truly amazing,” Sheila beamed.

“He loves you totally as you do him. There will be a deep misunderstanding within the first year of your marriage though. You will get past it only if you have the tenacity,” she replied.

“What do you mean a deep misunderstanding? Can you tell me more? Maybe I really don’t need to know,” Sheila responded in a concerned tone.

“You don’t, my dear. I just have one more thing for you. Don’t let your jealousy consume you. It’s an acidic and deadly disease,” the old woman told her.
