About the Author
When Margit Roos-Collins was six months old, she moved to Riverside, California, where her parents would push her carriage through orange groves after storms and pile windfall oranges in beside her. Maybe it all began there. When the citrus groves were cut down and the mountains were no longer visible, her family moved to Nashville, Tennessee, but she found her way back to California in 1976. After writing The Flavors of Home, she became an attorney in environmental law. She subsequently raised two berry-picking companions and spent her time volunteering in their schools. She lives with her husband in Berkeley.

Now retired, among her many loves are painting in oil and watercolor, photography, ceramics, gardening, and, most of all, spending time in the wilderness.
