Bio: Since 1970 I have taught classes in high school, community colleges and at San Jose State University. My doctoral thesis was on how literacy is taught in Mexico and I wrote many academic articles and a few books about the study. However, my true passion centers around mysteries, food, and wine. Thus, The Rick Podowski and The Hefty Trio series was created. In addition to the plot, each murder mystery focuses on seven Santa Cruz Mountain wineries and seven recipes with wine pairings. "Death of A Foster Child" is the fifth book in the series. Recently I turned my attention to cats and I wrote "Mellow Out--Lessons Learned From Household Cats" a fun read that explores the influence cats have on our lives. The book delves into twenty areas where their behavior provides a calming effect.

Mellow Out–Lessons Learned From Household Cats is a fun read that explores the influence cats have on our lives. The book delves into twenty areas where their behavior provides a calming effect. Each section begins with a quote that reflects mainstream thinking on the topic. This is followed by comments on how this concept plays out in society, and then, how the cats respond. Finally, there is a discussion on how to use the behaviors of the cats to improve our lives. The broad themes of the book focus on how to take care of ourselves, how to tolerate adversity and how to embrace our emotions. Topics include such things are dealing with getting high, being overweight, love, and brown-nosing at your place of employment.
