ABOUT ME / MY BOOKS

About me:

I am the author of  The Blondes of Bel Air, A Thousand Dollars for a Kiss, and Here If You Need Me.  I also wrote a children’s book, Victorious Girls, and pitched television shows to  Disney and Nickelodeon.

In what feels like another life, I wrote a celebrity gossip site which saw over six million views in its first year. My social media has seen a combined total of over eleven million views and when the social commerce site Polyvore was running, I had over 250,000 followers.

Many years ago I worked as a screenplay analyst for a popular Hollywood production company.  I have worked with authors to fine-tune their books and develop their works in progress. I love to read, write, travel, and take photos.

I live in Southern California with my family.

MY BOOKS

 

 

 

Lily Madison-Vaughn and Gemma Perry may not have wanted uber-unpopular Taylor French at their party—but they certainly didn’t want her dead. But when the unthinkable happens, Lily and Gemma fear for their futures and quickly shift into cover-up mode.

 

Meanwhile, television producer Freddy Levin blows into town to film a new reality show based on the privileged and glamorous students of Bel Air High. The missing student angle is too juicy for Freddy to resist. Lily and Gemma concoct an elaborate ruse to keep Taylor’s death a secret while they jockey for air time and celeb status.

 

With cameras constantly rolling and their clique acting stranger and stranger, the girls search frantically for a way out of the mess they’ve made. But where do you turn when your popularity is on the line and everyone has a secret?

The Low-Oxalate Anti-Inflammatory Cookbook: 75 Gluten-Free, Nut-Free, Soy-Free, Yeast-Free, Low-Sugar Recipes to Help You Stress Less and Feel Better by [Bokma, Cindy]

 

The Low Oxalate Anti-Inflammatory Cookbook: 75 Gluten-Free, Nut Free, Soy Free, Yeast Free, Low Sugar Recipes to Help You Stress Less and Feel Better

Health is like a line of dominos and once one falls, others soon follow. Most people have more than one issue that can be addressed by diet. But when gluten-free options lead you to almond flour and milk, for example, and almonds are rich in oxalates, you may then be put in the path of illness or issue related to high oxalates.

While much is known about gluten-free, low-carb, soy-free, nut-free, and low-sugar diets, this collection highlights oxalates, a naturally occurring but potentially inflammatory substance found in a wide variety of healthy plant foods, such as almonds, rhubarb, spinach, and more. These are, unfortunately, prominent in popular diets such as paleo and ketogenic.

With my guidance, you’ll learn how oxalates affect your body, in which foods they may be found, and how to adjust your diet so they don’t cause you inflammation or other issues. Recipes such as Chicken with Garlic and Tomato, Cheeseburger Burritos, and Easy Bake Apples are simple, familiar, and stress-free and will allow you to eat your favorite foods without worry.
