About Me

I am a freelance journalist. I am a retired registered nurse. I write regularly for the Celiac Journal of Gluten Sensitivity which publishes in the United States and British Columbia. I write under Dr. Ron Hoggan out of Victoria. I write for several secular magazines, and also five or six religious magazines, both Protestant and Catholic. Since retiring as a nurse, journalism, my second major in University, has been a life saver for me, both my poetry and articles. My husband and I recently arrived home from an all inclusive holiday to the Mayan Riviera, The Grand Sirenis Mayan. The Assistant Manager was unaware of celiac disease, but he was very interested in learning about it. I had my "Safe" and "Sorry" list translated into Spanish before we left home and several sheets of information laminated. I was so impressed at how they handled my meals I wanted to write about it. My Gluten Free Canada FREE Magazine.

  7. Cannot find the Katz Pumpkin Pie mix or ready made here in Canada. I feel like we are about four years behind our U.S.A. neighbours on the products we have in our stores.

  13. The Scoop in Barley: Barley contains gluten and that is where some of us "get stuck". It is frequently used to make malt. That is why the normal beer is so bad for the celiac patient.
