Doris Romano wants to live in a world where kindness is currency, thank-you notes are scribbled by hand, and conversations are held more than devices. After many years as a Registered Nurse and Holistic Nutritionist, she's come to learn that sometimes the best medication is a heaping dose of self-love. When she is not reading in her favourite coffee shop, Doris spends most of her time baking for her family and friends from the menu of her imaginary B&B. She lives in Toronto with her husband, Riccardo. The Mysteries of Life, Love & Loss: A Memoir is Doris' first book.
