In July, with the reality of the pandemic’s impact on publishing becoming clear, I decided not to wait around for an editor to want one of the several books I have on submission. I wanted to take back some control over my stories and who gets to enjoy them — and also, I realized that life is short and can change in an instant, and I didn’t want to die with my computer stuffed full of stories no one ever got the chance to read.

So I gathered together 15 of my writings about food, and selected 40 of my favourite recipes (choosing the ones that have a story), and self-published A Jewell of a Cookbook – the title comes from a cookbook my mother made for her two daughters twenty years ago!

You can order A Jewell of a Cookbook directly from me through the “Contact” link. Through that email, I can let you know how to get your own copy of these stories & recipes.
