This is my newest baby. I got my book proof on May 9th, but it took until June 5th to get my order for books to sell.
Today I made my first attempt to find a lake home for it.
I’m thrilled to announce we’re on the menu at Bella’s Italian Grille! I hope my book is a tasty addition to their restaurant. I hope you stop in for dinner, and a peak at Lake Fun, Grand Lake Style.
This is the chef at Bella's, who took a chance on us. I hope she emails so I can add in her name. The portrait to the right is her mother, the original Bella, when she was young. WOW! What a great portrait! I had to take her picture.
Bella’s is on West Bank Road in Celina, Ohio. It’s one of my favorite places, for a Friday date night with my husband. For a special occasion. The food is great!
Take a look at the picture below to peek inside Bella’s. Originally I took it because it’s the first restaurant I’ve been in since March. I love how they made social distancing look good!
If the weather’s nice, take your meal outside. Their patio faces Grand Lake St. Marys. It’s a beautiful view, and perfect for my book about lake fun. Half the book is my story for you. The other half is room for you to become a writer and illustrator too!
The restaurant’s namesake is also a writer. I wonder if she’ll get one of my books and become my co-writer/co-illustrator. If she does, we definitely need to do lunch so we can share lakes!

Hi! I work at Bella's. So glad you came in last summer :) Julie Fleck is the lovely lady you have pictured in your post. She's owner and operator!

Hi Kristi! I'm so glad you recognized Julie and gave me her name. She was so kind that day, and I so appreciated her time and the photo.

When I write, I can only have one voice in my head, mine. A little noise is fine. But too much, or worse yet, WORDS, and I must change rooms or pull out headphones. Then I can write on!
