Kari Nelson is not a conventional writer. She’s extremely daring and willing and able to take plenty of risks with her writing. Pretty much writing things that go into her head, and probably shouldn’t come out, as she attempts to lead readers on a journey they wouldn’t expect and perhaps, never knew they wanted to go on.
She is very unpredictable; because what fun is there in being predictable and reading about it?
Her stuff can be raw, raunchy and downright dirty at times. Her stories can also be a roller coaster of emotions that can leave one breathless with literary prose or throwing a fit out of sheer frustration of it not going in their desired direction.
She loves the possibilities in insanity and the deeply deranged. She will take you to the brink of crazy and slowly bring you back to normal.
As a genre jumper, due to her fascination with sexuality, religion, and politics, she often finds herself in hot water because her thoughts on these heated-debate topics are unconventional, and cannot be placed in a box. But as a freethinker, she refuses to conform.
I love having holiday theme desserts. I especially love when I can whip something up really fast and make it look like you spend more time on it than you actually did. This is easy because its a box cake with a cooked frosting that is easily poured onto the cake. Add sprinkles to match any holiday or occasion.
Chocolate Fudge frosting
Bundt cake, made with a box mix per directions. you can use any recipe also if you like for your favorite cake.
In a medium sauce pan bring to boil
4 Tablespoons butter, I use unsalted
3 tablespoons milk
Once butter is melted, remove from heat.
Add 2 tablespoons cocoa, whisk to incorporate
Add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 pound of confectioner sugar, add a few tablespoons at a time until you get the right consistency. May need more or less than the 1/2 pound.
Whisk until smooth. The frosting will be runny, but it should not be to runny, add more sugar if you feel it should be thicker.
But it should be thin enough that when you pour it on the cake it will spread out evenly almost by itself.
Pour warm frosting over the cake. Work fast to smooth it, it dries fast.
Before the cake frosting dries, now is the time to add sprinkles.
Let cool and slice to eat.
“Six years, a complex about my freckles, a love for pastrami, and a fear of failure. That’s what he gave me before slaughtering my heart and my faith in men.”

With the help of her zany roommate, Jodie, Avery finds a new career, home, and freedom. Throughout her self-exploration, she makes only one rule: She won’t give her heart to a man again. She’s living for herself this time.
But then she meets Jesse.
A tattoo shop owner, the green-eyed Jesse Pearce is wild with a touch of mystery. As Jesse and Avery explore Ocean City and their friendship, they’ll have a hard time drawing a line in the sand between their hearts.
