Listen to My NABBW (National Association of Baby Boomer Women) Teleseminar on Celiac Disease


In addition to my work as a children’s author, I am dedicated to bringing awareness to celiac disease, which is caused by an autoimmune reaction to gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye, leading to damage to the small intestine and a variety of serious physical and mental symptoms.

Avoiding Cross-Contamination: Home Cooking is Your Best Bet

Throw Your Own Gluten-Free Baking Parties

     How do you increase gluten-free awareness and make your gluten-sensitive child feel special among his non-gluten-sensitive friends and relatives? Invite company over for baking gluten-free cookies.  His friends will enjoy the gluten-free cookies and can bring some home for their own families. The praise his friends will give over the cookies and the baking experience will make your child feel just like non-gluten-sensitive children. As part of my gluten-free advocacy activities, I host regular monthly cupcake parties, inviting gluten-free families from the community, usually mothers and their celiac or gluten-intolerant children. You can also host a gluten-free party and invite other families, allowing your gluten-sensitive child to meet and bond with other gluten-sensitive children.

Some say we should sell them eventually but there is also talk about many more videos so we shall see.
