“Writing these books was an adventure. I learned so much from this experience and had a lot of fun along the way. I am currently writing a book all about my experience working in the tea business as well as editing my first novel. I am a professional photographer as well, and I just love cooking and photographing food! Writing this blog is a fun way to connect with other foodies who share my passion, and it’s a great creative outlet!”
