My latest writing…
The quest to recreate my grandmother’s oatmeal cookies continues with Dorie Greenspan’s recipe for Chockablock cookies and musings on memory and food.
Here’s what I learned about COVID 19 (the novel coronavirus) when I ended up in the local hospital emergency room this week.
The first time I ate a fresh ripe fig, I was 28 years old and worked for a Manhattan financial service firm. One of my coworkers lived in Elmhurst, Queens, and he brought in fresh, ripe green figs, a variety called Italian Honey. Thus began my lifelong fascination with this ancient, keystone fruit.
What inspired the Majek Family Mysteries?
When I was a girl, my dad took the family on Sunday outings. Many of these outings were to the famous estates of Long Island’s Gold Coast: Coe Hall at Planting Fields Arboretum, Old Westbury Gardens, and the ruins of Knollwood, the estate which is now Muttontown Nature Preserve. As an adult, I spent many Sunday mornings ambling through the ruins of the Eberstadt Estate at Target Rock and Caumsett, the old Marshall Field Estate. I was fascinated with the stories, the hauntings, the tragedies and triumphs associated with these places. My books blend these spirited old buildings with faith and family, two things dear to me. I hope you enjoy the tales that transport you out of this world and into another!
What Readers Are Saying
Another winner! Love a book with a happy ending and a moral to the story. Jeanne writes so imaginatively that I can see in my mind White Oak Hall and its surroundings. This book is a must read if you love a good mystery.
