Author Event - The Secret Spice Cafe and The Secret Life of Mrs. London

We're excited to welcome local authors Rebecca Rosenberg and Patricia V. Davis for a discussion of magic, art deco and the courageous and daring female characters that appear in their fiction. Join us Friday, March 23rd at 7:30 for a night of fun and lively conversation! 

Patricia V. Davis is the author of The Secret Spice Cafe Trilogy, a trilogy of novels set aboard the RMS Queen Mary. The trilogy is her first foray into full-length fiction. Her previously published works are non-fiction, all featuring powerful, dynamic women.  

Patricia will present Cooking for Ghosts  and Spells & Oregano: Books I and II in the trilogy, which is the story of four diverse women, each haunted by a past tragedy, who meet on a food blogging site, bond over recipes and decide on impulse to open a restaurant together aboard the RMS Queen Mary. A long-time luxury ocean liner now permanently berthed as a floating hotel and museum in Long Beach, California, Time magazine has named the ship one of the "top ten most haunted places in the United States."

California native Rebecca Rosenberg lives on a lavender farm with her family in Sonoma, The Valley of the Moon, where she and her husband own and operate the largest lavender-product company in America. The Secret Life of Mrs. London is her first novel.

The Secret Life of Mrs. London is the untold story of Charmian London. As America teeters on the brink of world war, Charmian and her husband, famed novelist Jack London, wrestle with genius and desire, politics and marital competitiveness. Charmian longs to be viewed as an equal partner who put her own career on hold to support her husband, but Jack doesn’t see it that way…until Charmian is pulled from the audience during a magic show by escape artist Harry Houdini, a man enmeshed in his own complicated marriage. Suddenly, charmed by the attention Houdini pays her and entranced by his sexual magnetism, Charmian’s eyes open to a world of possibilities that could be her escape.

Patricia and Rebecca will be serving Breathless sparkling wine!
