WESTCHESTER, N.Y. - April 3, 2014 - PRLog -- Author, Glynis Astie, continues her French fairytale with the release of the second book in the Sydney Bennett series, French Toast.

It is a fun and light-hearted novel inspired by her real-life story of being swept off her feet by a French man and marrying in less than 6 months – a true fairytale…or is it?

“This book and the other two in the series have been so much fun to write. I love taking the crazy stories from my own life that you just can’t make up and adding even more twists to what many women think would be a fairytale. Meeting a dashing French man – sounds romantic right? But I wanted to show the realities too while telling an entertaining story,” says Ms. Astie.

Infused with humor, mother-in-law woes, a fruitless job search and the harsh reality of an imperfect groom, will Sydney and her French dreamboat be raising their glasses in celebration or watching their impulsive marriage crash and burn? One thing is for certain, Sydney and Louis Durand are headed for one hell of a toast…

About Glynis Astie

Glynis is a busy mom, former corporate HR guru and Magna Cum Laude graduate from Northwestern. After thirteen years in Human Resources, she decided to make good on her promise to write a book – and instead of taking the non-fiction route, she decided to base her novels on her own life.

Glynis’s own story has always been a crowd pleaser. What woman wouldn’t want to be swept off of her feet by a handsome young Frenchman? While she felt lucky to have met the love of her life, it was certainly not the image of perfection imagined by many. The end result was her first book, French Twist, which is humorous, sweet and undeniably real. And because this novel chronicles merely the beginning of an epic love story, Glynis has just released the sequel, French Toast, and is working on the final installment in the series, French Fry.

Unfortunately, Glynis’ parents, who were so lovingly memorialized in French Twist did not live to see its production. She imagines them holed up in a coffee shop in another realm arguing about who was misrepresented more. She is sure that her father has made a list of edits…

Glynis currently lives in Westchester, New York with her incredibly romantic husband and two angelic sons. When she is not writing she is usually rushing to the gym, wracking her brain to remember third grade math to help her son with his homework, rescuing toys from certain destruction down the toilet and keeping a tenuous hold on her sanity by consuming whatever chocolate is in the vicinity.
