More about author Eliza Leone

Born in sunny Southern California, she spent most of her childhood playing video g5446811ames and reading books. Growing up, she was often found sneaking books under her covers and reading by flashlight when she was supposed to be sleeping. These days, you will most often find Eliza with a book in one hand, a draft of her own in the other, and her fluffy kitten by her side.  With the love and support of her family and her wonderful husband, she has set out on an epic quest to complete her debut novel and finally see her dream in print.

PPPSandersCover“Beckett works at a coffee shop to make ends meet while attending a prestigious university. It’s not the most exciting job, but he’s done it long enough he’s good at it—and can avoid the tedium by spinning sexy little daydreams of things he doubts will ever happen.

Daydreams that soon include Simon, the hot, handsome, and older freelance writer who stops in one day. But then Simon becomes a regular, a bright spot more interesting than the inside of Beckett’s head, and daydreams start to seem like they could be something far more tangible—if reality doesn’t get in the way first.”

PPPGrandPrize3Cafe Du Monde is a historic New Orleans institution. Beckett, one of the two main characters in “Percolation, Poetry, and Passion”, alludes to dining there in the story.  Here’s history about the famous Café:

“The Original Cafe Du Monde Coffee Stand was established in 1862 in the New Orleans French Market. The Cafe is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It closes only on Christmas Day and on the day an occasional Hurricane passes too close to New Orleans.

The Original Cafe Du Monde is a traditional coffee shop. Its menu consists of dark roasted Coffee and Chicory, Beignets, White and Chocolate Milk, and fresh squeezed Orange Juice. The coffee is served Black or Au Lait. Au Lait means that it is mixed half and half with hot milk. Beignets are square French -style doughnuts, lavishly covered with powdered sugar. In 1988 Iced Coffee was introduced to the cafe. Soft drinks also made their debut that year.”
