About the author:

June V. Williamson was born in a little northeastern town of Udorn, Thailand. When she was 7 years old, her mother met, fell in love, and married an American Air Force officer. This was the beginning of her military life of living back and forth from America to Thailand being exposed to the native Thai life for 9 years. However, those years were deliciously profound. Thai food had been infused into her by Thai street vendors and her Thai mother. She is now back to living in another beautiful little town, but in Utah with her husband and 5 children.

Meet the Publishers: Cedar Fort Celebrates Fastest-Growing Ranking with Pancake Breakfast!

Do you ever have a day when you just need to celebrate? We did.

On March 9, 2015, Publisher’s Weekly ran an article on the fastest-growing publishers in the country, and Cedar Fort made it into the top 10!

We were so thrilled! After lots of growth in the past few years and many growing pains along the way, it was fantastic to have our efforts recognized by the industry at large.

We knew it was time to celebrate, so that morning we had a big pancake breakfast for everyone in the company.Lyle

But not just any pancakes. We wanted to make them extra awesome by incorporating recipes from Karly Campbell’s recently published Stack Happy—an entire cookbook stuffed with delicious pancake and topping recipes.

So, in keeping with our signature Cedar Fort style of collaboration and cooperation, we each brought a topping or side to share.

With tables of bacon, eggs, potato pancakes, browned butter drizzle, cinnamon streusel, and more awaiting us, we said a quick prayer and dug in! We spent the next hour eating and talking.

Bacon-and-eggsThe food was delicious. Lauren Error, the graphic designer who worked on Stack Happy said, “It felt good to see the very first book I worked on come to life—or come to the table.”

As we ate, we asked each other a series of questions like, “If you could remove any one person’s vocal chords for a year, who would you choose?” and “Which person from the past are you most looking forward to meeting after you die?” As you can imagine, the answers were both funny and illuminating. Here at Cedar Fort, many of us are divided into specific genre groups and don’t work much with those outside our team. We wanted to give everyone a chance to spend time with each other.

KellyEmily Chambers said, “It was fun to get to know my coworkers in a relaxed, unusual way—a way I don’t normally get to interact with them. My favorite part was everyone’s answer to the question, ‘If you could suddenly discover that one fictional book was actually real, which book would you want it to be?’ Most everyone answered something like Harry Potter, but one person said Jurassic Park and I thought that was both awesome and terrifying.”

Lauren said, “I enjoyed getting to know people I don’t normally talk to and having conversations about topics that wouldn’t normally come up.”

BryceEven though we know we still have a lot of work ahead of us, we loved taking the time to recognize our success and realize how far we’ve come as a company. Zane Phillips, who works in our warehouse, said, “It’s encouraging. [Before the breakfast] I didn’t know we were one of the fastest-growing publishers.” This news gives each of us extra motivation to produce and deliver the best possible products to our customers.

As Lyle Mortimer, our CEO, put it, “[With this article], we’re invited to the big dance.” We have a real opportunity to have a voice in publishing. We can make a difference and spread positive, inspiring messages in a time when they’re sorely needed.questions

We invite you to celebrate this achievement with us as part of our Cedar Fort family, and we’d especially like to thank all of our authors, illustrators, and friends who helped us to reach this point.

We’d love to hear your answers to some of the questions we asked at our breakfast. Just leave us a comment below!

  1. If you could remove one person’s vocal chords for one year, who would you choose?
  2. Which person from the past are you most looking forward to meeting after you die?
  3. If you could suddenly discover that one fictional book was actually real, which book would you want it to be?
  4. If you could live in a hotel in any city in the world for one year, which city would you pick?

About the author:

When Norene’s sons became teenagers, she realized how much she missed being a room mom. Making sweet treats with the kids and throw- ing classroom parties were all a thing of the past. As a result, she created Party Pinching, a popular website where she could blog about her cute food and budget-friendly party ideas. Her adora- ble desserts have been featured in Family Fun magazine, Seventeen magazine, and Taste of Home, and have been praised by Martha Stewart and Shark Tank’s Bar- bara Corcoran. She is a frequent guest on New Day Northwest, a morning television show in Seattle, where her easy dessert demonstrations get rave reviews.

Norene’s love for celebrating special occasions with all things sweet inspired her to write Party with Sweet Treats, the perfect sequel to her first book, Sweet Treats for the Holidays.
