Miriam "Mimi" Rutland, resident of Miami Shores, has written her first published book entitled Miss Pistachio's Big Day. She was inspired to write this book after being diagnosed with breast cancer in September 2001-just two weeks after September 11th.

As for the future, Rutland says she'll continue to teach and plans to write a couple more books. Rutland is donating 10-percent of the sales of "Miss Pistachio's Big Day" to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation.
