I'm thrilled that my newest book project is out from W.W. Norton in December 2022!
My article "A Plea for the Exotic: The Early Years of the American Orchid Society" was the lead article for the centennial celebration issue of Orchids.
My article "Orchids in Gilded Age New York" for Orchids magazine appeared in this issue! I've never had a better time in the orchid archives unearthing odd and floriferous delights.
My first article for ORCHIDS magazine appeared in this issue! "Growing Orchids on the Shores of Lake Superior" was incredibly fun to write.
The Routledge History of American Foodways is an overview of the history of food in the Americas from the pre-colonial era to the present day. I wrote the chapter on "Alcohol."
My first book was about wine growing in nineteenth century America. Orchids go very well with wine, don't they?
