A year later I joined a writing group and the group decided to publish a small magazine featuring work by members of the group. So I decided to do a piece about my mother and my memories of growing up in her kitchen. It seemed natural to add a recipe at the end of the piece. The piece "Mother's Lemon Rice" was very popular and everyone kept asking me if I was going to write more stories about life in my mother's kitchen. The first piece was auto-biographical but I changed the focus of book from myself to fiction. "My Mother's Kitchen" was easy to write and I finished it less than a year.(less)

Once upon a time there was a young girl who dreamed of adventures. She would look up at the bright blue sky imagining she was flying away in one of those rare airplanes she glimpsed from her hilltop home in the Nilgiris, the Blue Mountains of south India.


It took nearly 20 years but one day she found herself on a plane flying off to faraway California, leaving behind her mother and sister. Under t...India.
