Tracey Lothian lives on the spectacular south shore of Nova Scotia and is the mother of two outstanding young women – Maggie the science nerd and Molly the thespian. She has lived in BC and Nunavut, and was a stay-at-home mom until she earned an Honours degree in Linguistics and learned that playing with words translates into precarious employment. Now an empty-nester, she spends her days editing and writing for (and sometimes about) food, and looking for ways to gain wisdom without having to be completely grown up.
