Taylor Bryant, a recent college graduate with bleak job prospects, moves back into her childhood home with her parents and older brother. Despite a tug to find a livelihood about something she feels passionate about, Taylor follows the job hunt her parents expect of her and takes the most sensible sounding job she can find, hoping to find contentment and a respectable career. Taylor’s brother Daniel is a few years ahead of her in the corporate world. Frustrated with his salary, slightly in debt, and seemingly unable to climb the corporate ladder, Daniel is near the end of his rope when he comes up with a Plan B for himself and Taylor – a beach-themed doughnut shop in their Texas hometown. The two bounce back and forth, entertaining the idea and casting it aside as they continue trying to make something of the comfortable jobs they already have. Daniel and Taylor grow increasingly apathetic until Daniel, in a desperate lunge to save his career, ends up losing his job and forces himself and Taylor to an ultimatum. The two can take the risk and try to create a life they find purposeful, or they can remain within the bounds of reasonable job and financial security. Beneath the entertaining veil of a whimsical plot and dry humor, Kate Petty’s debut novel is an achingly passionate story of the bond between siblings, breaking societal conventions, discovering purpose, and finding life in the deepest and truest sense of the term. Taylor and Daniel Bryant are authentic characters whose struggles readers will recognize and rally with. Their story challenges the status quo and calls readers to dive in with them - take the risk, make the jump, create a life worth living.

Kate’s storytelling humbly began at the age of three with a mystical scroll of stories (i.e., a bamboo sushi mat) and an awe-stricken, captivated audience (i.e., two very amused parents). Eventually she traded the sushi mat for a notebook and then a computer, but she likes to think she’s maintained the same spirit for invention and creativity. Kate studied filmmaking and screenwriting in college. Her background includes documentary production, corporate videography, photography, and editorial writing. The variety of her experiences opened the door to work as the director of marketing for a technology company in Dallas. She worked with the company until she decided to craft a life better suited to her passions and talents. Kate now focuses on encouraging others to pursue their own passions while maintaining her commitment to live intentionally and with purpose.
