Born and raised in Northern California, I am an out going, adventurous individual. I've studied English at Santa Rosa Junior College, and also a bit of business. Throughout my school years English has always been my favorite subject.

Celiac.com 05/22/2013 - Tragedy has struck the celiac community when an established author's life was taken while crossing a street in Calgary, Canada. She was a popular published author by the name of Wendy Turnball. She was made famous by her first book, Canadian Bestseller "Gems of Gluten-Free Baking."

Photo: CC--Andrea_NguyenWendy was diagnosed with celiac as an infant and was immediately put on a gluten-free diet. Physicians told her parents it was a childhood disease which she would outgrow. In her thirties infection reactivated her celiac symptoms.

Wendy was passionate about baking gluten-free foods that could stand up to regular foods. She developed her very own whole-grain flours, which she called GEMS flour. She's left behind a gluten-free baking staple for celiacs everywhere to enjoy.
