My Occupation Children's writer, publisher, nutrition nut
My Bio An early interest in kitchen pleasures inspired my degree in food science from the University of Toronto. A Gold Harvest award capped my publishing career with Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, for a national science program I led for children. Now I enjoy bringing my stories, recipes, and healthy-eating messages privately to kids in the community, with the help of my alter-ego, Vinny Grette, the 12-year-old boy who lives inside all of us, regardless of the passing years..
