|BROWNIE FIX Cover|
BROWNIE FIX blurb:
Chocolate. Love. Sex. Really, what else could a woman want in life? For Persey, the heroine of Brownie Fix, her days are fun-filled until what is normally one of life’s most fulfilling experiences, the birth of her son, leads her straight into a dark state of postpartum depression. Wandering in her own postpartum hell, Persey meets people that are absurd, like the swinging neighbors who want a little more than a cup of sugar and a group of mothers who become whipped up in worship to a climactic furor. On top of the madness, she keeps seeing a yellow-toothed old man who acts like he wants to breastfeed from her. Or is it her imagination? Add the voices in her head that become louder and louder, and it's little wonder that Persey reaches for brownie mix to soothe her insanity. Buckling under the pressure and lack of sleep from motherhood, Persey experiences the five stages of grief that lead her to uncover a buried secret, and gradually she begins to heal with the help of her family, friends, and, of course, brownies.
Ellen Cardona wrote Brownie Fix to help deal with the postpartum depression she
experienced after one of her pregnancies. Through her writing, she found that postpartum
depression was real but conquerable, especially when one has the help of some dark
chocolate and even darker humor.
When Ellen is not writing, she teaches literature to college freshmen and attempts to help
them understand the writing process, though they think she’s crazy because of her love
for literature and writing.
Ellen graduated from the University of Texas at Dallas with a PhD in Humanities with a
specialization in Literature. Even though she has published several academic works on
Ezra Pound, she could not ignore her true passion as a fiction writer.
Ellen lives in Richardson, Texas and continues to learn daily from her husband and two
children. In good times and bad, she still enjoys her brownies.
