Please join us for this wonderful opportunity to meet and visit with Paula! We will have books availble for purchase.
Blue Moon Vegetarian is part memoir, part cookbook, and part health-and-nutrition how-to, and chronicles Kentucky-born former nurse Paula Marie Coomer as she and her fiancé go vegetarian—and ultimately vegan—while also planning a mid-life wedding, adopting a pound hound, and remodeling their two-story Victorian. Writing with honesty, humor, and sometimes despair, Coomer tells the story of two people alternately thriving and suffering as they adjust to a new way of eating, living, and loving. With advice from a former public health professional and over fifty original, tried-and-true, plant-based recipes, this thought-provoking book is perfect for anyone concerned about their own health, the health of their loved ones, and the health of our planet.
From the back cover: “Blue Moon Vegetarian is a book that will feed all the essential parts of you: your body, your mind, your soul. It’s a love story, a health journal, a cookbook, a lyrical memoir–the perfect recipe for anyone who desires to live a deliciously examined life.” —Kim Barnes, Author of the internationally-acclaimed novel In the Kingdom of Men
Paula Coomer’s fiction, poetry, and non-fiction have appeared in numerous journals, anthologies, and publications, most recently The Raven Chronicles and Manifest West. She holds an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Idaho. Books include short stories Summer of Government Cheese, poetry collections Devil at the Crossroads and Nurses Who Love English, and two novels—Dove Creek and Jagged Edge of the Sky.
Ms. Coomer lives near the mouth of Hell’s Canyon in Clarkston, Washington, where she organizes writing retreats and classes. She also writes as Paula Marie Coomer.
