Marrying Myself is her debut novel from Christine Melanie Benson — writer, attorney, and Main Street Vegan-certified Vegan Lifestyle Coach. In this thoughtful conversation, Benson connects the dots: romantic love, self-love, animals, food choices, and life choices. The novel’s protagonist is a Vegan whose journey to finding love takes a curious, and curiously satisfying, turn. And the author is a remarkable woman who shares her life journey and unfolding awakening.
