Francine Schwartz has written about a variety of subjects–from travel and mountain biking to health, movies, food and wine. She grew up in a household with a French mother who believes that wine is essential to a good meal and a good life, and a Roumanian grandmother who deplored anything that had added preservatives, and an American dad who loved French cooking. A proponent of organic practices and a natural lifestyle, Francine cares deeply about the environment. She lives near her daughter in Marin County, CA, with her calico cat and terrier mix.
