I've Written A Doughnut Essay

My second publication of the year, Confessions Of A Doughnut Eater, is what I call an eating essay. My eating essays tend to be memoirish. We could call it a doughnut memoir, inspired by my children who were both burning up our family text one weekend with news about their doughnut excursions. They inspired some of my earliest work and continue to do so. 

Interested in literature? This piece has a couple of references for you. There's one to Jane Eyre, and the title is a shoutout to Thomas de Quincey's 1821 classic Confessions of an English Opium-Eater. Everyone loves Thomas de Quincey, right?

I didn't notice a reference to 'Jane Eyre' in the doughnuts piece. Jane's been on my mind b/c I've been viddying a 1970 TV movie version of the novel with George C. Scott and Susannah York in the leads, plus a haunting score by John Williams.
