Meet the Blogger

Hi! My name is Chase. Welcome to my blog! I started The Bookend Diner in 2019 and have loved connecting with people all over the world through books and food. I’m 33 years old, a wife, dog mom and avid reader of all genres. I love to bake and experiment with new foods. I also love (reasonably priced) fashion, home decor and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. I’m a mental health advocate and think we all need to take time to enjoy the things that bring us happiness.

    “All the drugs and the women and the men, all the wild, dark rumors, all of that is both a distraction from and an offshoot of what this man can do.”
