After attending Colby College, he held a variety of jobs including being a roofer, a postman, and a manuscript reader at a big New York publisher. He is the author of ten Jack McMorrow titles, as well as the Brandon Blake mystery series.

Kate Christensen : How to Cook a Moose...and More Sunday, November 8 at 2:00 p.m.

Ms. Christensen was raised in Berkeley in the 1960s, long before the Bay Area became the American locavore/foodie mecca.  In 1980, after graduating from Green Meadow Waldorf School, she lived and worked as an au pair girl for a year near the town of Moulins, in the Allier district of France, where she learned to make mousse au chocolat and rabbit stew and discovered cheese, butter, and wine. She now lives in Portland, Maine and the White Mountains of New Hampshire with her sweetheart, Brendan Fitzgerald, and dog, Dingo. How to Cook a Moose is about her life in the northeast corner of New England and the amazing people she’s met, the wonderful food she’s eaten.
