Interview with Catherine McEwan

Describe your desk
Organised, I am probably a bit of a control freak as I like to work in a tidy area. I don't like my desk being messy. I also work from left to right if I have paperwork around.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I prefer to read on my Kindle
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a big city in Scotland, not sure if it influenced my writing at all, but as my main book is about cooking, I suppose that the people around me did have some influence.
When did you first start writing?
Started writing blogs some years ago.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Seeing my recipes in print and feeling that what I write may be of assistance to others as when I was first diagnosed with my challenges I had great difficulty finding information.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Delving into the past, Genealogy is a hobby of mine, and maybe that will be my next book.
What do you read for pleasure?
Historical novels, based on fact.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I have to be honest and say cost, spending lots of money on book printing and marketing is not my way, my daughter first introduced me to the concept and I have assisted my husband over the years too.
What are you working on next?
I have not fully started on anything, but being a Genealogist and a grandmother to so many, I would like to write something that could be passed on to the family, to let them know where the originated.
Who are your favorite authors?
Diana Gabaldon, Phillip Day, Eve Hillary, Stephen King.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Life, every day above ground is a good one.

This book has been compiled to assist others like myself who are allergic to Gluten. When I was first diagnosed with this allergy I found it very difficult to find information on what I could or could not eat. Being also allergic to eggs has made my life a bit more challenging. Coming from a family of bakers, I then decided to try making my own bread to ensure that I knew exactly what I was eating
