Some excerpts from various blurbs:

Tasty diary entries mingle humor and contemplative musings in a way that not only tantalizes the tongue but stimulates all of the sensory receptors, as her imagery erupts from the page to entice one’s very soul.”
— Alison Ross, publisher and editor of “Clockwise Cat”

Ms. Carragon has whipped up a batter of metaphor, mysticism. and whimsy, sprinkled with the right words, layered with meaning, baked to perfection and topped with a sweet frosting of fable.

— Peter V. Dugan, Nassau County Poet Laureate 2016- 2018

The Cupcake Chronicles is an imaginative fable that explores what would happen if your afternoon treat were to suddenly come to life.

— Francine Witte, author of Not All Fires Burn The Same

The fine playfulness of this book is worth three times the cover cost. Own it and get such sweetness, calorie free.

— Susan H. Maurer, author of Josephine Butler: A Collection of Poetry

What begins as a normal work day changes for Carragon when she sees “cupcakes — the size of hobbits — parading the halls” of her office. From that point on, humanoid confections take over her life — and  — ours in this allegorical tale depicting the underlining madness of our ordinary lives.

— Linda Lerner, author of Yes, the Ducks Were Real”

Carragon writes with humor, deft language, and an energy that sweeps us into buttercream icing. . . Pay close attention to the wisdom her cupcakes impart: “We are here to look delicious and to please the sweet tooth of the human race” ; “Humans are better off as desserts.”

— Maria Lisella, Queens Poet Laureate 2015 – 2018
