THE AUTHOR SCOOP
What are you working on now?
A blog about the topics covered in Planetary Apothecary, ideas for my next book, and getting back to having a bit more life balance (more yoga, more gardening, more cooking, more friend and family time, etc.) now that I'm not at the computer for hours on end.
What's been sitting in the back of your fridge for more than a year?
Umeboshi plum paste. But that's ok because it has a pretty much indefinite shelf life and it's one of those things that I use a little at a time, so it lasts a while. It's really an amazing food…it has a tart salty taste and is really good for stomach ailments. It's said to be a great cure for hangovers as well. It's one of the foods I feature in the Virgo chapter of Planetary Apothecary.
Who is your hero?
I have to pick two: my grandfather and grandmother, Abe and Sylvia. They instilled an amazing sense of love and togetherness in my family, something that I count on as a great blessing. My grandfather taught us about the world and how respect and morality were of utmost importance. From my grandmother, we learned resourcefulness, tenaciousness, how to cook (although no one can do it like her), and the fact that age should never limit you in what you are capable of achieving (to this day, she's still winning golf tournaments). I am so lucky that, while they are 91 and 89, respectively, they are still with us to this day.
How do you cheer yourself up when you're feeling down?
Play with my cat. Pull weeds in the garden. Do a Sun Salutation. Remember how blessed I am to have an amazing family as well as kind and loving friends.
What do you like to make by hand?
Jewelry. I love the alchemy of taking different colorful materials and weaving them together to create a piece of wearable art. I often custom design the pieces with a person's astrological chart in mind so that they can serve as a personal talisman.

I personally have found that the wellness tips and advice are pertinent to my past health as well as going forward. Being a Taurus, in the past I have had eye, ear, nose, and throat issues which is consistent with my sign. Moving forward I can use this new information to assure that I can keep my wellness on the right path.
Everyone has found this book bright, engaging, easy to understand, and a pleasant read. We just go right to our astrological sign for the information we need. I have a feeling I'll be ordering several more copies . . . .
