The Book That Changed My Life

On May 17 I’ll publish my tenth book. It’s called POISONED and this one is incredibly personal to me. This book tells the story that sparked the food movement in the country. During the two years it took me to write it, my family has revolutionized the way we eat. We now grow much of our food on the organic farm we created. We raise our own chickens. What we don’t produce we buy from local organic farmers. We eat in season. My children haven’t tasted fast food in two years and we seldom visit grocery stores. Now when we say grace we mean it.
