Overview

Reading Vickie's book was like getting on a roller coaster, exciting and scary but in the end, sorry to have it pull into the station. She sure tells it like it is. Total honesty in all its raw, miserable, sweet, and touching moments. Her story and her truths are both sad and triumphant. A very brave acknowledgement of desires, mistakes and understanding. Buckle up - it's one helluva ride! ~ Deborah Harbottle

Is it a memoir or a cookbook? Maybe a bit of both.

She has already cheated in the bedroom, hoping that finally finding the love of her life will make all of the ensuing torment worthwhile. But when Vickie's husband and her lover's wife find their own love, that torment escalates on every front. From agony to ecstasy to emotional annihilation, the author battles on through a mid-life she never anticipated, learning to cheat in the kitchen, get honest in the bedroom and pursue a truly authentic life.

Told in her own uniquely honest voice, Vickie shares cheating recipes, life hacks, true-life confessions and jagged, gut-wrenching revelations with equal candor. There are no good guys or bad guys here; just one tortured soul trying to figure out life and relationships, all the while cooking up a storm the easy way.

Does love win in the end? Is online dating the answer? Can marriages be saved? Is forgiveness possible? Does a true "love of your life" really exist? Can cheating ever be justified?

These sincere, unreserved and often hilarious confessions of a potty-mouthed chef will enlighten on every front. And if cooking with celebrity chefs intimidates the heck out of you, the cheater recipes will delight both you and your diners. How To Cheat, Eat and Be Happy serves up a feast for your heart, your soul and your belly.

About the Author

Vickie has enjoyed a multitude of colourful and creative careers. With a BA in Drama and with a wealth of amateur and semi-professional stage experience under her belt, she landed her first paid gig in summer stock musical theatre before joining a touring pop group. Eventually she formed her own country rock band, writing and recording several original compositions. After a brief stint on the business side of music, handling record promotions for an independent firm, she segued into country radio. Heard on 820 CHAM-Hamilton for ten years, in both the early morning and midday slots, she also pre-recorded a pop show for a sister station in London. She hosted her own television show (Showdown), wrote for television (The Canadian Country Music Awards on CTV), radio (numerous specials) and a bi-weekly newspaper column (Country Corner) for the Hamilton Spectator.

Vickie helmed the midday show at Canada's premier Smooth Jazz outlet, Wave 94.7FM from its launch in 2000 until 2011. She also penned the script for the annual Canadian Smooth Jazz awards for all seven years and was named the first ever Canadian Smooth Jazz Broadcaster of the Year in 2007. She is currently the morning host at www.wave.fm and occasionally performs pop jazz and jazz standards. Other recent written works include a cabaret-style musical My Romance (workshop production available on YouTube) featuring the classics of Rodgers and Hart. Her blog can be found at WineSoakedRamblings.com (because the drunken pen writes the sober heart).

Currently living on Georgian Bay with Shiloh and Richard, Vickie continues to scribble, make music, support her son Sam Drysdale's musical career whole-heartedly and cook for all her friends. Watch for an upcoming YouTube channel - The Potty-Mouthed Chef!
