Meet the Author

Tom Thie was the last owner of Virginia Bakery, located in the historical Gaslight District of Clifton in Cincinnati, Ohio. He was raised in the suburb of White Oak but spent many of his early years in and around the bakery. After earning degrees from the Ohio State University and the prestigious Culinary Institute of America, where he graduated with honors, he went to work at several fine restaurants. He became a sous chef under Emeril Lagasse at Commander's Palace in New Orleans and opened the Phoenix restaurant in Cincinnati with Chef Paul Sturkey. He then took the helm at Virginia Bakery, which he ran for fifteen years. He now resides in White Oak with his daughter, Carly.
Cynthia Kuhn Beischel grew up in Clifton enjoying the Virginia Bakery products, which she actually took for granted. Only after the store closed and she was unable to match the delicious items she'd grown up with did she realize how really special their baked goods were. Her love of cookies and cakes, combined with her enjoyment of writing, made this project a perfect fit. Previously published work includes Discover the Past, a storybook about Cincinnati history that encourages children and their families to enjoy learning about the past, and From Eulogy to Joy, a heartfelt anthology that explores the grieving process. Her educational background includes a bachelor of science in design at the University of Cincinnati and a master's degree in Montessori education from Xavier University. Cynthia resides with her two dogs in a quiet village.
