About our Panelists and where to find their books:

Laura Bradbury just published and co-authored a cookbook called Bisous & Brioche, available here. It is based on her bestselling series of memoirs set in Burgundy, here. She has also published two novels set in the vineyards of France and is currently writing the third of that Trilogy, entitled “The Winemaker’s Trilogy”. Being set in Burgundy, it is centered around food and wine, bien sûr. Food is a major thread that runs through all of her work! Further information about Laura's books can be found here: www.laurabradbury.com

KJ Dell’Antonia is the author of the viral New York Times essay Why I Didn’t Answer Your Email, the former editor of the Times’ Motherlode blog and the author of the book How to Be a Happier Parent. Her debut novel, The Chicken Sisters, now a New York Times Bestseller, is a timely, humorous exploration of the same themes she focuses on in her journalism: the importance of finding joy in our families, the challenge of figuring out what makes us happy and the need to value the people in front of us more than the ones in our phones and laptops, every single time. It’s also the hysterically funny story of two small town sisters, one who stayed and one who left, each trying to use during a reality TV competition to finally resolve their ongoing feud over who made the better life choices. Expect picture-perfect lives that fall apart away from the camera, an all-chicken recreation of Stephen King’s Carrie and a manipulative host who really needs a donut—and expect to come away thinking about your own life choices, too.

Nicole Meier is a native Southern Californian who pulled up roots and moved to the Pacific Northwest, where she lives with her husband, three children, and one very nosey Aussiedoodle. Her debut novel, THE HOUSE OF BRADBURY, was chosen as a Best Book of 2016 by Refinery29. Her second book, THE GIRL MADE OF CLAY, was named a Top Book according to Bookbub readers. Her newest novel, THE SECOND CHANCE SUPPER CLUB, is out now. Nicole has taught writing workshops in schools, libraries, wellness retreats, and writers' conferences. She is the founder of The Gathering Table, where she hosts gatherings and workshops for writers, artists, and storytellers. Her works have been published in The Oregonian, Cascade Journal, Southern Oregon Magazine, Women Writers Women’s Books, Brazen Woman, and more. Find her on instagram under the handle @nicolemeierwrites, and info about the second chance supper club, here: https://www.nicolemeierauthor.com/the-second-chance-supper-club

Samantha Vérant is a travel addict, a self-professed oenophile, and a determined, if occasionally unconventional, at home French chef. She lives in southwestern France, where she's married to a sexy French rocket scientist she met in 1989 (but ignored for twenty years), a stepmom to two incredible kids, and the adoptive mother to a ridiculously adorable French cat. When she’s not trekking from Provence to the Pyrénées or embracing her inner Julia Child, Sam is making her best effort to relearn those dreaded conjugations. Details on how to obtain her novel, The Secret French Recipes of Sophie Valroux, can be found on her website, here: http://www.samanthaverant.com/
