I am a professional author, freelance writer, copyeditor, and Internet marketing consultant. I have been an avid reader my entire life. As a child I was known for keeping my nose in a book even as I did my chores.
Eight years ago I decided to turn my habit of keeping track of the books I read into an online magazine where people could find mini-reviews of books I thought many others might enjoy.
Over the years, FEAST has expanded to include fiction, nonfiction, art, food, film, and adventure travel. Among the books and films I recommend are many that may have faded from sight because they didn’t have big promotional budgets behind them or just because new titles came out and pushed them out of sight.
This is not a magazine where books or films are criticized or denigrated. That I’ll leave for others to do. This is a place for sharing positive experiences reading fiction and nonfiction, viewing films, exploring new cookbooks and reading about cooks, discovering artists whose work sends shimmers of delight down your spine, and venturing by armchair, airplane, boat, motorcycle, etc., down the blue highways of travel.
Welcome to FEAST — Happy reading and daydreaming!
