I wondered why the “martini mommies didn’t make me laugh”, the ethics behind travel to paradise dictatorships or if it’s possible to teach a dog to swim. Could I run a marathon even though I considered myself a “non-athlete”? Is it possible to survive an Australian vacation? Are we a culture of addicts?
Can I, a mom of three, help save the planet? To answer that one, I wrote two syndicated columns, “The Virtuous Consumer” and “The Virtuous Traveler”. My book The Virtuous Consumer: Your Essential Shopping Guide to a Better, Kinder, Healthier World…and one our kids will thank us for! spun into an award-winning radio show, numerous national TV appearances, and speaking engagements throughout the U.S. and Canada.
I have also written more than a dozen books for children, including bestselling biographies of Helen Keller, Muhammad Ali and environmentalist David Suzuki. I’ve told the extraordinary stories of lesser known young heroes in SuperKids, SuperKids Too and Record Breakers.
