Editorial Reviews

From the Author

When I began writing these stories, my only intention was to save them for family members to remember me by. After friends heard me read a couple to groups on various occasions, they urged me to pull the collection together into a single volume, an eBook, they said. A funny thing happened as I began assembling loose stories into a consolidated collection. As happens while writing any memoir, new memories and insights emerged, and this cherished topic took on new depth and meaning for me. Beneath the humor that's always been there, I found a solid base of historical significance. While I had not initially envisioned it as a formal memoir, when I began threading the individual stories together, a story arc emerged, and additional reflection transformed that initial pile of stories into a true memoir -- in this case a mini-memoir.
 
Adventures of a Chilehead is a short book, the memoir equivalent of a novella. This short form is ideal for tightly focused topics such as this. I'm hopeful that with the advent of easily produced eBooks, additional authors will make use of this form, providing readers with mind-snacks they can read in a short period of time. 
 
The recipes are an afterthought requested by early readers. They were a challenge to write, partly because I'm an intuitive, impulsive cook who considers recipes mere suggestions, and partly because of the impulsive, unpredictable nature of chile itself. These recipes are unique in giving guidance on how to adjust your cooking to take both your tolerance levels and the variable heat of chile into account and produce meals that satisfy without overwhelming.
