Books and Articles
In the current climate of online “content,” almost nobody is “just a writer” anymore. Like most of my colleagues these days, I have a multi-lane career. I run Main Street Vegan Academy, training Vegan coaches, educators, and entrepreneurs. I’m a professional speaker and I do a weekly podcast. I’m a co-director the Compassion Consortium, a spiritual center for animal advocates. And I’m working with my husband, William Melton, and Farm Sanctuary president Gene Baur, on bringing a feature film into being: Miss Liberty, about a cow who escapes from a slaughterhouse. (You can read about some of these other things I do by visiting the “Additional Ventures” page.)
And yet if you and I met at a party and you asked me, “What do you do?” I’d say, “I write books.” Not only have I been saying that for decades and it just comes naturally, being an author—and writing shorter pieces, too—is, I’m convinced, the reason I came to earth.
This page highlights my backlist, the books I’ve written to date. My fondest wish is that my best books are those yet to come.
