About Rosemary Carstens

Rosemary CarstensI 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 filmsĀ  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!

Rosemary Carstens, Editor

    Great site. How does an artist go about getting a spotlight or submitting articles? Would love to submit images and articles from my artist blog.

      Steven: We do not take submissions for Artist Spotlight. As editor, I feature artists whose work I personally like–it’s very subjective but based on a lifetime spent viewing and creating art myself. I have friended you on Facebook today and that will keep me in touch with what you are doing. Thanks so much for your interest– Rosemary Carstens, Editor
