Occupation Author
Location Ontario, Canada
Introduction Urbane gardener, philosophical cook, well informed shopper and promoter of the basic white linen and place setting. I am a new author who previously worked as an interior decorator and wedding planner. I want desperately to be a brilliant chef an obsession that has resulted in me owning nearly a hundred cookbooks and I watch way too many hours of the food network. When I am not trying some new recipe, I obsess about my plants. I’ve yet to have a rosemary that has been able to survive the Canadian winter. I often fantasize about moving to the Tropics so I can garden all year round. The profile photo is a portrait called "La Lettre" by one of my absolute favourites, Delphin Enjolras, which I feel is fitting for a blog called The Romantic Query Letter. Thanks for visiting. *♥♪ Sincerely, Simone Ogilvie.
