About this author

Terri Morgan is a book junkie and freelance writer from Soquel California. She reads at least 3 books a week, and gets nervous if she doesn't have new reading material available. When not reading, she is often found writing. Over the past three decades, her work has appeared in hundreds of different magazines, newspapers, newsletters and on websites. The author of 4 non-fiction books for young adults, and the co-author of four additional non-fiction volumes, Terri released her first novel, Playing the Genetic Lottery, as an e-book in late 2011. She is preparing to publish a paperback version in early 2012.

Chocolate Wars by Deborah Cadbury
Rate this book
Clear rating
I love chocolate, I love history, and was looking forward to this book. However, I didn't finish it because, well, I got bored with it. Cadbury is a great writer, and I've really enjoyed some of her other books, but I just couldn't get into this one.
