Read full description of the books Pizza, Love, and Other Stuff That Made Me Famous:
Can a spot on a teen reality show really lead to a scholarship at an elite cooking school AND a summer romance?
Sixteen-year-old Sophie Nicolaides was practically raised in the kitchen of her family’s Italian-Greek restaurant, Taverna Ristorante. When her best friend, Alex, tries to convince her to audition for a new reality show, Teen Test Kitchen, Sophie is reluctant. But the prize includes a full scholarship to one of America's finest culinary schools and a summer in Napa, California, not to mention fame.
Once on-set, Sophie immediately finds herself in the thick of the drama—including a secret burn book, cutthroat celebrity judges, and a very cute French chef. Sophie must figure out a way to survive all the heat and still stay true to herself. A terrific YA offering--fresh, fun, and sprinkled with romance.
Read information about the authorI hate writing bios almost more than I hate writing thank you notes (they are about as stale), so I will try to make this interesting. I was born on a blustery spring day in [excised], a good year for Republicans and a bad year for zinfandels. I penned my first literary masterpiece in a pink Trapper Keeper soon after: a short story about a wild horse named Babbling Brook. Babbling Brook found herself in a pickle when the field she used for grazing froze over in a blizzard and then, still frozen, burned. While my early appreciation for plot and conflict was encouraging, it was also clear that I lacked a basic understanding of the laws of nature.
After graduating from The University of the South (Sewanee) with an English degree, I moved to Washington, D.C., and then New York City to pursue a career in journalism. My coverage of hard-hitting issues of the day, such as the new poncho trend and doggy yoga, appeared in leading publications including Newsweek, Newsweek International, The New York Observer, Shecky’s, and NYMag.com. When I tired of eating ramen noodles and free packets of ketchup, I took a job as an editorial assistant for a book packager. Thanks to clean living and friends in high places, in 2005 an essay I wrote about being “Southern in the City” was noticed by an editor at Disney-Hyperion. As they say, the rest is history (code for “kind of boring”).
I am now the author of the young adult novels The Debutante, The Lost Summer, and the forthcoming Pizza, Love, and Other Stuff that Made Me Famous, as well as an illustrated humor/advice book, Roomies: Sharing Your Home with Friends, Strangers, and Total Freaks. Under my pen name, Lucy Ruggles, I have authored or adapted a number of books, including the bestselling Camp Rock: The Junior Novel. When I am not spending the thousands of gazillions of dollars that I make writing books, I freelance as an editor for Sideshow Media. I also blog regularly for SparkLife and offer freelance writing, editing, proofreading, and photo research services.
I live somewhere between Nashville, Tennessee; New York City; and Richmond, Virginia. I am a strong believer in the healing power of butter, bacon, and Southern rock, and I never, ever wear white after Labor Day…or is it before Labor Day?
