Books by Kim Pierce

Based in a True Story

My Dead
True Love

When a newspaper reporter’s fiancé dies abruptly, she questions how he could just cease to be.

Dogged by unbidden thoughts, odd coincidences and unexplained phenomena, Ann Stewart becomes obsessed with finding out what really happens after we die and whether her beloved Gregory is still out there. She finds her answer, which takes her and a close-knit coterie of women to the edge of the cosmos—and the core of their own hearts.

A World of Plant-Centered Cuisine

The Phytopia Cookbook

When registered dietitian Barbara Gollman and I wrote The Phytopia Cookbook, we were ahead of our time. The recipes endure—wonderful dishes such as Thai Hot and Sour Soup, Apple Clafouti and Fruited Moroccan Chicken that nudge meat to a supporting role—and taste so good you forget they’re good for you. The cookbook includes state-of-the-art research at the time (1998) about the benefits of a plant-centered diet, but we deliberately placed the science BEHIND the recipes as advocates of good-tasting food first.
