Day 9 of the 10-day Countdown!

Don’t Drop the Baby is dropping on Feb. 4. Meet Dr. Brogan Corkie!

Well, this is certainly a pleasure! I’m Dr. Brogan Corkie. I’m a mother, a doctor, and by far the most fun, an amateur chef. I’ve been experimenting with recipes for years using my two children, Mae and Finn, as guinea pigs. They’re onto me now, though, and it’s harder to convince them that the substitutions I make are going to be just as tasty. They generally are. 😀

They know me well at the International Market, a small grocery store within walking distance to my home in Mapleton, Ontario. I love to try unusual ingredients!

I’ve been a family physician for forty years now, and I’m thinking of paring back my hours at the clinic to make more time in the kitchen. My fridge and freezer are getting mighty full, so I may need to branch out and find more victims…er…taste testers. I always thought it might be fun to start a catering business, maybe combine my medical skills with my cooking skills and help people who are laid up at home, recovering from an illness or injury. It’s a possibility, but for now, I’m just going to sit back, relax, and try out that new recipe I saw online using pawpaw fruit and ginger. Sounds delicious…and who knows, maybe it’ll inspire a little love. I know just the couple who could use a little push in that direction. 😉 Stick with me, and we’ll see what mischief we can get up to!

A bit about Don’t Drop the Baby ~

Dr. Brogan Corkie is happily semi-retired from medicine and now has time for other hobbies. Her passion for food is only second to her skill at matchmaking!

Ross Skye, owner of BabyCare, a high-end line of baby merchandise, is injured in an accident, and Brogan uses her cooking, medical – and matchmaking – skills to help him out. Dr. Lauren Ross is taking care of her nephew for two weeks, and Brogan agrees to babysit while Lauren is at work.

Two years ago, Ross and Lauren dated. At that time, Lauren wanted kids, but Ross wasn’t keen. Now the tables have turned, and Ross is trying to convince Lauren that they’d make an awesome parenting team. Brogan suggests they test drive parenthood by looking after a simulated baby for a week – a computerized version that eats, sleeps, wets, and cries. Ross and Lauren experience the “joy” of having a newborn firsthand, and the bar is set pretty low. Their first goal is: don’t drop the baby. The second goal is to find out if their love for each other will survive the test of…parenting.

I’m aiming to release Don’t Drop the Baby on Feb. 4 on Amazon. It’ll be 99cents – a bargooooon! As soon as I have the buy link, I’ll let you know.

Stay tuned tomorrow for more Don’t Drop the Baby fun!
