Arlene Krasner taught sign language to chimpanzees, composition to college freshmen and writing to technical writers, English majors, and Engineering graduate students. She worked as a technical writer, documentation manager, and an engineering manager. She owned her own business communications company for several years. A life-long foodie, Arlene has been both a recipe tester and a recipe twister. She also worked as a cook for a fraternity house (don’t ask!). Through it all, Arlene has always been, from first course to last, a writer.
Arlene lives with her husband, Mark Saunders, in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, along with a huge blonde standard poodle, who almost outweighs her, and a very opinionated cat, who scares her. Kosher Sutra is her first book.
A memoir of a life well spent and a nostalgic romp through the innocence of the 1950s, the confusion of the 1960s, and the growing, but always interesting, stability of the decades since. Flavored with good recipes, an unflagging sense of humor and an eye for the absurd, Kosher Sutra is a whimsical look back at an enchanting world.
