This is a story of how a simple misunderstood gesture from one disrupts the balance and contentment of another.
Nicholas Toulard is a celebrated baker, known throughout the world. However, Nicolas is not motivated by fame. He does not have a bakery empire with stores throughout the city of Paris.
No, Nicholas has a single small bakery in a quaint small neighborhood. Although fame bestowed its gift on Nicolas, he remains humble but proud. Every day the baker happily goes about his daily routine, until one day, when a young boy named Pierre throws the baker's world into disarray.

Robert Stephen. What makes a writer? What do you envision when you think about that question?
Someone sitting by an open window looking out over the ocean, desert, mountains? Rainy day, foggy, sunny?
My definition of a writer of fiction. A person who drives himself or herself to the edge of insanity when writing a story to the best of their ability that you the reader find entertaining.
I can honestly say my life has been interesting, far from boring. Land baron, restaurateur, photographer, artisan, author. A life full of ups and downs. A life full of stories.
Along the way I've met hundreds of people, some interesting, some not. Some dangerous, some beautiful, some kind, and some cruel. During my lifetime I've even had my heart run over a couple of times, but when all of it is said and done I wouldn't trade it in.
Writing has always been inside of me, but the siren never called to me. I wasn't ready until on day in October of 2015 when life said, "Start writing."
Writing is a long journey, full of many perils, but don't be afraid it is an exciting adventure!
