Chocolate! Just kidding. Not sure what to insert in this box. Influences? Former professors? Fave authors? Mother Nature? (Lake Tahoe is my muse.)
My new book The Healing Powers of Chocolate (published by Kensington, Dec. 29 2009) is now part of a book trilogy: The Healing Powers of Olive Oil and The Healing Powers of Vinegar (translated in more than 15 languages). Good news! Yesterday, I discovered that One Spirit Book Club (and some of its sister book clubs) has accepted this book (as it has my vinegar and olive oil tomes). I am honored, happy, and this calls for a dark chocolate celebration!
Swimming, swimming, swimming year-round but prefer doing laps solo--off-season without tourists. Films, writing, eating-cooking gourmet food and taking healthy shortcuts to do it, my companion animals, reading, predicting Mother Nature (quakes, tsunamis, weather). Plus, often on national radio to discuss my forecasts before, during, and after.
