In addition to the dining column, I write personal essays. One entitled "Traveling Companion was selected for the anthology "Cup of Comfort for Women. I also wrote a local interest book called "Rochester Eats: 75 Years of Craves and Faves. I am working on a collection of stories from my years working as a staff member at a community soup kitchen.
I write about Food, Faith, Family and Friends.
Anne Lamott - I love her liberal, loving and self deprecating take on faith. I also like Crescent Dragonwagon, Vermont cookbook author of Dairy Hollow Soup & Bread Cookbook, Passionate Vegetarian and Bean by Bean. I have been fortunate to take writing workshops with both!
I'd love to meet Laurie Colwin, who wrote serveral novels, but also two great books on food & relationships "Home Cooking" and "More Home Cooking"
I would like to use my recent relocation to make dedicated writing time. I want to finish and find a market for my collection of essays & stories from my work in a community center & soup kitchen in Rochester.
I am a recent transplant from Upstate New York. A freelance food & travel writer, I wrote the dining column for our local paper. As a member of Finger Lakes Culinary Bounty I promoted the wine & food of the region and farm to table dining.
