I'm in Architectural Digest! Sadly, they didn't interview me about design...which is a little disappointing because I wrote Designing with Succulents and was a regular contributor to Better Homes & Gardens and Sunset. That said, being in AD is a huge honor. Plus they used my photos (example above).
The topic: How to propagate succulents

Well, after I profiled Mr. Bell for the San Diego Union-Tribune, Bell Enterprises and Taco Bell Corp. wanted me to do his biography. I'm proud of the book; it's a good read. After it came out, KFC asked, but I declined doing one about The Colonel. If I hadn't, what do you suppose I'd be doing today? Speculations welcome in the comments below.
