Upper East Bride: What the Wealthy Eat

There is a lot of food in my book. :-) If the novel ever takes off, it would be fun to do an “Upper East Bride Cookbook.” Here are just 10 occasions , to get the idea - unless you are a vegan, or a cardiologist, in which case, don’t even look. I may post the whole list on my website - there are about 45 scenes with meals, cocktail parties, high teas, snacks and pastries! Bon apetit...

"Fun and entertaining.

This was a breezy and fun read. The heroine (Megan) was genuine- nice but not a pushover. Certainly, this wasn’t the same calibre as Shakespeare or Dante; there were some excellent and hilarious lines. The closest comparison I ca" Read more of this review »

“What we should enjoy, perhaps, is not their performance, but the mere fact of their existence. That, we believe, is wonder enough.”
David Kirby, Death at SeaWorld: Shamu and the Dark Side of Killer Whales in Captivity

“One faction views SeaWorld as a Garden Hilton for killer whales, and the other views it as a Hanoi Hilton for killer whales.”
David Kirby, Death at Seaworld: Shamu and the Dark Side of Killer Whales in Captivity
tags: orca

“Nearly one-quarter of all orcas captured for display during the late sixties and early seventies showed signs of bullet wounds. Royal Canadian fighter pilots used to bomb orcas during practice runs, and in 1960, private fishing lodges on Vancouver Island persuaded the Canadian government to install a machine gun at Campbell River to cull the orca population.”
