Hello, my name is Lori D. Watkins. I have a few interest that I am really passionate about. One is cooking and I have been cooking for over 42 years and another one is children and their education. I used to teach K-3 and have so many fond memories with those little one. They gave me a lot of material to use. And as much cooking that I have done and do, gave me the skills and knowledge about developing a recipe and writing my cookbooks.
My cookbooks are: 'Momma T's Home Cooking, The Story of Alyce Tipper's Kitchen' and 'Family, Friends and Food'.
After graduating from college in Michigan, I moved to San Francisco. I owned and operated my catering company for a good 8 years and then started thinking about writing cookbooks. That was a fun journey. Then I discovered I wanted to write a children's (picture) book and now have a few more children's books on the back burner.
I now live in the suburbs of San Francisco with my husband, Ken and we have an adult son, Alex. I enjoy traveling, cooking, reading, writing and 'day dreaming'. We are very active in our church and do a lot of community volunteering. I also love to entertain.
I hope you read my books and enjoy them!
