THE WAY TO MY HEART: AN ANTHOLOGY OF FOOD-RELATED ROMANCES (CONTRIBUTOR)
Praise for The Way to My Heart “Let these works of literature remind us that food and drink intrinsically link us to memory. With just a sip of a wine, you can be transported to a first date, a bedside in Paris, or a tapas bar in Spain. In reading these sexy and honest works of fiction and poetry, it is hard not to make a beeline to the kitchen for a little amuse-bouche or nightcap, so just give in. Pour a little Pinot Noir and indulge in this evocative collection.” -Rita Mookerjee, PhD Candidate in Literature, Florida State University
WIDOW WOMAN (AUTHOR)
The year 1962 began a time of tremendous change all across America. For Audrey Randolph, 1962 also brings personal tragedy: her mother dies suddenly, leaving behind a lifetime of letters, photos, and unimaginable secrets that will call into question everything Audrey thought she knew about her mother, about relationships—about the very nature of love itself. In Widow Woman, Julia Tagliere delivers a sensitive, compelling, and timely exploration of love, in all its incarnations—and the lengths to which we will go to hold onto it. Available now in print & Kindle versions.
“An amazing novel that leaves you thinking long after you’ve finished reading it…absolutely superb.” —Kristen Larson Brown, speaker, coach, and bestselling author of The Best Worst Thing and The Happy Hour Effect
“An uplifting and thought-provoking glimpse into one woman’s challenge with accepting and acknowledging love in many forms…” —Kathryn Holmes, author of I Stand With Courage

The middle years of life are ones of tremendous joy and unchartered challenges. Often times, these are the years when we are pulled in multiple directions, with the needs of our career, marriage, children, aging parents, and friendships all taking a toll on our time and energy.

Here In The Middle is a collection of essays that gives voice to the complexity of the middle place, sandwiched between love and loss, with thirty-two writers sharing their stories, along with a piece of their heart and soul, so that readers can find acceptance, solace, and understanding.
