About the Author
Michelle Medlock Adams is an award-winning journalist and best-selling author of many books, including Dinosaur Devotions, What Is America?, and They Call Me Mom.
I recently got a new cookbook in the mail. It's not very big -- at about 8-by-5-inches and a scant 130 pages or so of text, it's dwarfed by many of the books in my collection. But like its subject, it is packed full of yum, sweet and maybe just a little bit squishy. The author is Michelle Medlock Adams, an award-winning journalist and best-selling writer. From what I can see from perusing the 100+ titles on her website, this is her first book about food. And the subject is one that is near and dear to many Hoosier hearts. If I told you she grew up in Lawrence County, Indiana, you might begin to guess what is it is -- a tiny orange fruit that is just starting to ripen here in Bloomington, the persimmon.--Carolyn VandeWiele "Herald-Times (Bloomington, IN)"
