Zora O’Neill has lived in New York City since 1998, but she still calls New Mexico home. Growing up, she attended ceremonial dances at Taos Pueblo and camped in the Pecos Wilderness – but she took it for granted, and perhaps even complained about it a little. Not until she moved away and traveled the world (her book about studying Arabic, All Strangers Are Kin, is forthcoming) did she realize what a wild, culturally rich place she’d been raised in.
During her travels, Zora has been particularly interested in food, occasionally working as a cook, caterer, and cookbook author (Forking Fantastic! Put the Party Back in Dinner Party was published in 2009). Researching Moon Santa Fe, Taos & Albuquerque gave her the excuse to seek out the best red chile enchiladas and most creative uses of local organic produce.
Zora is also the author of Moon New Mexico. She maintains a blog about her cooking, travel, and guidebook-research experiences at rovinggastronome.com. She also maintains an update website for this book, moonsantafe.com, where you can see what has changed since publication. Zora welcomes email from readers at email@example.com.
