I write what I like to read.

I write fun books about love, aging, cooking, entertaining, travel and friendship.  The Cooking Class in San Sebastián and The Cooking Class in Kuala Lumpur are exactly about all that. 

 I am obsessed with cooking, my house and my family. I love my dog.

I am obsessed with cooking, my house and my family. I love my dog.

I have cooked, catered, sold cookbooks, edited cookbooks,  been a web site content manager,  a marketing product manager, and was the senior editor of a commercial web site dedicated to home cooking.

Before blogging was popular, I was reviewing cookbooks and writing about entertaining and wine tasting for a wine organization and on my personal web site with the tagline Cooking and Reading Every Day.
