Vinegar Pie & Kumquat Ice Cream

Mags’ Memoir, as Told by Herself

Vinegar Pie & Kumquat Ice Cream: NOT Your Mother’s Cookbook!

This novel-in-stories takes place in three locales:  Pittsburgh, where Mags was born and spent her early years;  Daytona Beach, where Mags lived with her family during her Junior High and High School years; and Atlanta, where Mags finally settled after moving around a lot as an adult.

The narrative voice of Mags matures throughout the book, which culminates in the life-changing calamity that provokes her to resign her tenured faculty position at Atlanta Tech and move back to Daytona Beach.

Settled in a loft apartment above a downtown toy store, Mags embarks on her new career as a full-time writer.
