Professional/Personal Overview
  I have been writing life stories since I was a distracted fourth grade student in Mrs. Edinger’s class. Multiplication tables couldn’t hold a candle to what was going on in my head. Since then, I have relished in the bittersweet moments raising an adolescent daughter, the heartbreak of losing a loved one and the consuming comfort a properly made Sour Cream Apple pie can bring. I blog in English and Spanish about life and food on my websites http://alonamartinez.com and http://www.culinarycompulsion.com. I am currently working on my first book.
