As a small girl, Cari Donaldson wanted to be a vegetarian, veterinarian, and author. Once she realized how much math was involved in being a vet, she scrapped that idea. Being a vegetarian and writing this book involved almost no math, however, so she was able to accomplish them both. She now lives in Connecticut with her husband, six children, twenty chickens, and one dog. When her many overlords allow it, she details her family life at www.clan-donaldson.com.
