That’s me. 25 years ago I went out on a chocolate journey without really planning it. I started in Paris with the famed Master chocolatier, Michele Chaudun, who to me had the most romantic chocolate store that I needed as inspiration material for my writing career that I was planning carefully to myself. I never stopped planning the writing career ever since, chasing vigorously after inspiration materials that I needed so badly around me in order to finally make it happen. However, meanwhile, some relatively extensive chocolate drama happened without me putting too much attention to it. I created a brand, which you’ve might have heard of: Max Brenner Chocolate by the Bald Man- (the bald man in the logo? That’s me) opened many chocolate restaurants around the world, invented some fun chocolate dishes wrapped in all kind of wacky ideas and didn’t really write anything. Then, also without really planning, a New York judge signed on a “Stipulated Order” – a term I didn’t know till then and I really don’t want to know till today- which meant that for five years I can’t say, make or tell anyone anything about chocolate. So because I had nothing else to do and because I was restricted from looking for chocolate inspiration materials for my writing career I found myself riding my daughter to school, to friends or mostly to the beautiful bakery in our little town telling her stories about all those chocolaty adventures I have had in the last two decades and all the ones I really want to have when I’ll finally be allowed again to use chocolate as my paper and pen. So that’s me and how I got on the bike- Amsterdam by Electra http://www.electrabike.com/bikes/amsterdam) , BTW- if you’re interested in some biking inspirational stuff for beginning writers.
