If you take a peek at her website too, you'll see the many other wonderful books she has written. In this interview, I thought my readers would be fascinated to hear more about how Joni got published, why and how she went vegan, and how much she loves vegan junk food! Joni is definitely an inspiration.
What is your 'becoming vegan' story? (How long have you been vegan, did you go vegan slowly or overnight, what triggered you going vegan, etc?)
I had been a half-assed off and on vegetarian since high school (I am now 37 years old) and was always fascinated by vegetarians, animal rights activists, and vegans. When I was in the tenth grade my friend, Kayt, and I did a very graphic presentation in our English class about animal testing and vivisection. Complete with a 'zine handout and "Meat is Murder" as the soundtrack in the background.
