my new book "The Cooking Class
in San
Sebastián" is aVAILABLE now


Laurence's quiet life in Seattle is shaken and stirred when 70-year-old Eva sweeps him off his 76-year-old feet. He's a retired Boeing engineer who likes to read and cook. She's a powerhouse CEO who suggests shocking ideas about sex, love and marriage. Romance is exciting at every age but can this unlikely couple create a future together? 

 Drew's gallery is struggling through the Great Recession. He risks his finances and reputation to try to save it with a unique Basque art exhibit. When Eva sends a sophisticated Parisian and her son to help, Drew and his young assistant Julia are intrigued and wary. The mysterious Frenchwoman has business savoir-faire but can they trust her? 

Food, wine, art and love make The Cooking Class in San Sebastián a modern story about never giving up on living a passionate life.
