My Books


“The author has a breezy chatty style of writing that is more conversational and encouraging than dry and strictly instructional. Reading the book felt more like a cup of tea and long chat with a good friend than a classroom lecture.”

Backyard Chicken Keeping

Learn everything you need to know about raising a happy, healthy backyard flock of chickens or ducks...naturally.

 I'll help you raise the flock of your dreams!

Coop to Kitchen Cooking

Sweet or savory, eggs can be cooked in so many different, delicious ways.

So what's my cooking style?

Locally sourced, seasonal, egg-centric dishes with flavors hinting of my Scandinavian backyard and garnished with fresh herbs from my garden.
