FRIENDS: “The Backyard Parables” (my third book), released in January 2013, has been called “a blessing” by “Eat, Pray, Love” author Liz Gilbert, and “a love story” by “The Vegetarian Epicure” author Anna Thomas, among other tender feedback. The book was featured in places from “People” magazine to “Good Housekeeping” and “The New York Times.”
IF EACH OF YOU who visits here to harvest some of my “horticultural how-to and woo-woo” bought a book, you’d have conspired to create a giant hit! (And I could blog fulltime, and stop answering my accountant’s six-years-running questions about “Now how are you going to monetize this crazy website of yours, Margaret?”) Tee hee, but back to being serious for a second:
I love this latest book with all my heart. I’m so proud of it (and I even shot the cover photo). I hope you will have the chance to read it yourself before too long–whether in hardcover, e-book or audiobook. Just start reading the preface, free, right now by downloading this pdf).

my previous books
I HAVE WRITTEN two previous books–one, in 1998, that this website was then named for a decade later, and another (in 2011) about my decision to leave my city fast-lane life and move to my rural garden fulltime. “A Way to Garden” (the book) is a collector’s item now (you can find it at used bookshops sometimes, or used on Amazon or Alibris [dot] com). Plus: An all-new edition comes out in spring 2019. You can purchase “And I Shall Have Some Peace There” at many booksellers, including Amazon (affiliate link).
