Silk Espresso is now a six-year-old flourishing business in Gresham, Oregon, that has won many awards including Business of the Year from the Better Business Bureau, two Telly awards, and multiple Reader's Choice awards. Leah has created her own publishing company, SIP publishing, where she will continue to publish short but powerful "coffee shop reads" like this book and give other un-published voices a stage to share their truths.
