There is more than the communion of bodies when bread is broken and wine drunk. –m.f.k. fisher
Food, friends and family are one way to celebrate life. When mixed with shared adventures, a story unfolds.
From 1987-2018, I lived with my family in six countries on three continents; Singapore, Cyprus, Taiwan, Germany, France and the USA. During our early years overseas, I discovered the books of M.F.K. Fisher [1908-1992].
Fisher’s stories about people, places, and food, set in France and California, were influential in my own writing. It’s an important mingling. We are nourished by good food. We are nurtured by great friendships and love.
Therein lies the thread to my own stories. Set in countries where we have lived or visited, each one is connected to family, or friends, or to a place worth remembering. It’s not always about food, but there is always an adventure.

…It seems to me that our three basic needs, for food, security, and love, are so mixed and mingled and entwined that we cannot straightly think of one without the others. So it happens that when I write of hunger, I am really writing about love and the hunger for it, and warmth and the love of it and the hunger for it…and then the warmth and richness and fine reality of hunger satisfied…and it is all one.
