Carie Toeller is a beach-loving native Californian with a proficiency in pairing organic cocktails to various organic potato dishes. Creating recipes and cooking with real, whole foods is not just a hobby, it's a passion, and an adventure. But it is writing that feeds her soul. And any day where she gets to sit outside with a cool breeze, a glass of wine, some chocolate covered caramels with sea salt, and a page turning novel, in no particular order, is a really great day.

She lives and concocts romantic foodie murder mysteries in Northern California, surrounded by family and friends that mean more to her than they will ever know.
