Foodopoly: The Battle Over the Future of Food and Farming in America
Kirkus Reviews : Foodopoly (October 15, 2012)

While the text can be wordy and repetitive, the author’s message is clear, and the graphics pack a punch that hammers it home.

The Lady of Secrets: A Novel

Skillful story weaving insures that readers will only know the answers to the book's questions at the end.


A Possible Life

Delicately crafted stories.
