How my Bagel books came to be
by Marilyn Bagel

I married a Bagel. And as a writer, I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to turn my new-found namesake into a publishing opportunity. That and sitting next to a publisher at a cocktail party. Yes, the idea for my first book was sold with a drawing on a cocktail napkin.

In addition to the fact that bagels are not just for breakfast anymore, they are the “teddy bear of foods,” a term of endearment I coined for them. I filled my books with bagel history and lore, recipes for breakfasts, lunches, dinners, munchies and, yes, even desserts. I included a chapter on how to make your own bagels as well as a celebrity chapter where I interviewed bagel-loving celebs about their favorite bagels. But don’t look for a bagel endorsement from legendary Broadway producer Hal Prince. He told me he’s not a bagel lover, but that if I change my name to Blueberry Muffin to get back in touch. I had my 15 minutes of fame on book tours with lots of press and media interviews on TV and radio. But I never quit my day job, because unless you’re Stephen King, you shouldn’t.
