Research, Glorious Research!

I'm deep in research mode, which is one of my favourite parts of writing a book. These days I'm spending a lot of time "dreaming" about what my new book will look like, playing (in my mind) with different formats and voices, and digging into research in the various wonderful ways that the book requires. And fortunately for moi, this new book idea requires me (beyond reading books) to go on field trips, visit markets, watch things grow, and cook and eat delicious local food. I feel my waistline expanding as I type. :-)

This is the first time I've been able to combine my three big interests — books, kids, and cooking — into a single, tantalizing project. What could be more fun than that?!!!
