    Hello Heather, I’m a UK-based journalist writing a book – it’s a collection of vegan recipes – and I’m really interested in talking to you, with a view to including your comments in my book. Would you mind giving me your email address so I can send you some details and you can see what you think? Many thanks, Jo.

    • Dear Jo,
      Thank you for taking an interest in my blog. I will be very happy to co-operate with you over your book.
      In 1988 I wrote a vegan book called The Gourmet Vegan, published by Victor Gallancz but long out of print. I do know that there is a copy in the Bodleian Library, Oxford.
      My e-mail address is If you have any problems with it please contact me again or send me your e-mail address.
      Looking forward to hearing from you,
