About Ria Stone

NOTE: Gina's Dream/El Sueño de Gina, a dual language POD is available on The Write Place and other online retailers.

As a mature U.S. Expat living in Mexico, I have found time to write and appreciate life.

Also, as an avid reader, and former typesetter with journalistic training, my vocation now is writer and author. Dorothy Sayers gets a lot of credit for my transformation. I so enjoyed her works, I decided to try my hand at writing a novel. It has been a wonderful adventure and excellent education.

With a wide range of reading interests, I lean towards mysteries, science-fiction, and non-fiction subjects like astronomy, geography and history for starters.

I enjoy the community of writers. I have known and meet many wonderful writers over the last 30 years and continue to meet more.

p.s. My author photo was taken at the Book Launch Party for Gina's Dream on the Day of the Dead holiday in Mexico, hence the skeleton.

Review by: Serban V.C. Enache on Feb. 22, 2014 :
The recipes are not for the average vegan upstart. I myself being a moody omnivore can go either way. The book is so easy to read and get into. I recommend it to any individual (or better yet, any young couple) wanting to get knowleadgeable and skilled around the kitchen, while saving some money in the process and having fun.
Though not being an expert or cullinary scientist, Ria Stone is nonetheless dedicated to scientific rigour. This is made evident by her observation that measurement conversions are easy to make via internet calculators; but transforming the recipie for more or less mouths is a real mathematical challenge. Combinations of ingredients and preparation having so many variables, this is most true. Even if you're good at math, you can run into trouble.
From the author's menu list, I'm gonna try out first the microwave baked potatoes. I'm tired of making french fries for myself anyway. And my oven is really old and a hassle to wait around on. Overall, considering its content and form, I give this ebook a solid 5.

Review by: Gary Weston on Jan. 25, 2014 :
As a bloke alone, I have to cook or starve. Fortunately, I survive the experience. Ria has a sparkling wit which shines out of her book and it is a pleasure to read. It is written in a simple way, as is her philosophy with cooking. I did learn a few things from her tips, and I look forward to making her mug chocolate cake. If I become addicted to those, I suppose I can always buy larger size jeans (again).
I recommend this to newbies in the kitchen, living on a tight budget. A good way to gain confidence in the kitchen and grow from there. Good Job, Ria.

Review by: Ted Summerfield on Dec. 20, 2013 :
Ria has crafted a wonderful cookbook of flavourful and quick recipes for chili, salads, stews and other mouthwatering fare.

Ria included some personal stories in her cookbook, making it a treasure to read compared to some dry, "just the cooking facts" cookbooks I've read.

As an added bonus, you don't need to know how to cook to make any of these recipes. There are no weird ingredients found only at some artsy-fartsy, high-brow, high-priced, food emporium, just simple, easy to create food.
