I’m an author and copyeditor based in Hillsborough, North Carolina. I have published two nonfiction books: Bread Science and a bicycle trip memoir called Somewhere and Nowhere. I am currently writing lighthearted “cozy” fantasy romance novels using my middle name, Jane. Learn more about my novels and my mission as a fiction writer at https://janebuehler.com.


cover of the book Bread Science with multiple breads on it and a badge reading 15th anniversary editionMy first book, Bread Science: The Chemistry and Craft of Making Bread (2006), covers the science of baking and includes step-by-step instructions for baking and pitfalls to avoid. Peter Reinhart, author of The Bread Baker’s Apprentice, said of Bread Science, “This book will be an important addition to every bread lover’s library, whether professional or serious home baker.” I continue to teach classes and workshops on bread baking. I used to write a food and chemistry blog. You can buy Bread Science at the usual retailers, but if you buy it from me at the Two Blue Books website, my mom will ship it to you.

cover of book "Somewhere and Nowhere" with photo of person on bike on road with evergreens and mountain backgroundSomewhere and Nowhere (2017) is a memoir of my cross-country bicycle trip. It’s the adventure of Wild, the contemplation of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, and the neuroses of Eat, Pray, Love, all on a shoestring budget… and bicycles. Ragini Elizabeth Michaels, author of Unflappable – Six Steps To Staying Happy, Centered, And Peaceful No Matter What, describes the book as “An enjoyable and worthy read for anyone interested in living a more balanced and happy life.” Links to buy the book are at the Two Blue Books website.


I have been a freelance copyeditor since 2013. I have a PhD in chemistry from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and I edit mostly research reports and academic papers. Learn more about my editing business at http://www.emilyeditorial.com.

News Updates and More

person holding newspaper that says "subscribe to my news blog"So, I have a blog with a “News” category you can subscribe to, to keep up with me… but I’ve been pretty bad about posting lately because most of my time is going into editing and writing fiction. If you do subscribe, though, you will hear from me if I ever get back to reading/writing about bread chemistry research. Please remember to select the categories that interest you.
