writes books and eats food 

 eats food, and then writes books 

Welcome to the soft launch of my site

Here, I combine my love of storytelling, Mexican food and art. This preview release gives invited guests the chance to look around before the launch in January. I'd appreciate your feedback on the content and your artwork suggestions. You can always reach me right here.

About me

I'm the author of four books published by Dutton, Penguin, Berkley and Thomas & Mercer. The topics range from folk medicine to saints to fiction. My work may appear to be all over the map, but it is tightly bound to my Mexican roots. More information about me can be found on the "Annette Who" page.
