More About the Author
Although I was born in New York, I was raised in Washington DC. As a child I always loved nature and I could spend countless hours examining every blade of grass, and every vein of a leaf. The beauty of nature amazed me.
One of my favorite pastimes was to collect fig, dogwood, and peony leaves and imagine I would someday become an herbalist who would use the knowledge of plants to cure the world. While other children would snack on the latest junk food of the day, I always wanted fresh fruit, crunchy carrots and celery, and ripe tomatoes. My becoming a vegetarian was a natural progression.
I became a vegetarian in the mid 1970's. It was a time when vegetarianism was ridiculed and considered strange. As a result a great amount of self determination and persistance were required to continue to choose a healthy diet. I vividly remember the first time I made soy milk. It was a very long and labor intensive process that took two days to complete. I soaked the soy beans; chopped them in a blender; simmered them on the stove; mashed them with a fork; simmered again; strained through cheese cloth; and then added a pinch of salt and a pinch of sugar. I was a bit surprised and quite pleased when the result tasted exactly like cow's milk. I also learned to bake bread and make nutritional soups on a limited budget.
I am very happy that now in the 21st century, vegetarianism has become well accepted. Every major Grocery Store chain has a natural foods section. However, although there are many healthy food choices, meal planning can still be a challenge. The recipes I have developed are delicious meals my family loves. I hope your family will love them too.
My next literary project is a treatise on Machiavellian polices used by corporate America. It will focus on a company that desires to have complete control of its employees. The setting for this tale is a department store. The cast of characters include vampires, but-kissers, control freaks, deceivers and hypocrites. The fictitious company engages in wage and hour law violations, price fixing, after-hour employee surveillance, false documentation, and hush money payments to Politians and prosecutors. There is also a mixture of corruption, greed and lust
My inspiration comes from a combined eleven years in retail at both Rich's and Macy's department stores. Although the novel is total fiction, it was inspired by my immense retail experience.
