If you want to get published, eat taco salad. That’s Robin Burcell’s motto, and she should know. The day she mailed off a manuscript for the first time, she had taco salad. The day she learned Harper Collins wanted to buy her book, she had taco salad. Any time she needs a writing miracle, taco salad is involved in at least one meal.

“When I got the call saying, ‘we’re going to buy your book and make you a star,’ I had eaten taco salad. And it wasn’t just taco salad, it was chicken taco salad,” Burcell said.
