In a "previous life" Carole wrote cookbooks and food columns having been born to a master chef and restaurateur
who had cooked for the King of Denmark prior to immigrating to America.
Her cookbooks include:
• STAR FOOD by Carole Andersen Travis, Teton Publishing House, 1981 - Drawings by Kim E. Burroughs.
Over 275 choice recipes featuring the best from the two famous Danish restaurants favored by Hollywood's great - Carl Andersen's Chatam and Kenneth Hansen's Scandia.
• STAR FOOD REVISITED by Carole A. Travis-Henikoff, 2003, Homestead Publishing
Carole is currently researching and writing on sex; the good, bad, beautiful, ugly and history of the subject.
The following is an excerpt from her intro:
"If you could stand before a vibrant painting of colors depicting the immense subject of sex you'd see
the artist's entire paint box splattered and splashed across the canvas. There would be incredible areas
of warm and glowing colors depicting love, passion, desire, joy, fulfillment and romance, while a vast
array of bright colors would portray passions of the flesh; jealousy, longing, rejection, cheating,
beliefs, rules and sexual differences. There would also be areas of deep darkness showing brutality,
from emotional to physical including slavery, rape, mutilation and extreme violence...even unto torture
and murder. Scattered throughout would be thin brilliant threads of white denoting the firing of neurons
in human brains - more than seven billion of them - all sexually geared according to their genes and up-bringing.
And behind it all, almost imperceptible yet ubiquitous and powerful, would be the light that influences all
life forms towards bonding and breeding prompted by brain chemicals which bring forth needy emotions and
greedy passions that lift and drive the spirit, which in turn code for the survival of Natures myriad species...when
things work properly, humans call it Love.
Some years back I inadvertently got into subjects once
labeled Taboo. As I began my research I found that many such subjects had been recently labeled as false
under the banner of political correctness and revisionist history - regardless of recorded history,
first-hand accounts, photos, film footage and more. So began a time of constant research. Seven years
later Dinner With A Cannibal: The Complete History of Mankind's Oldest Taboo was published in 2008 by
Santa Monica Press, and was followed by PASSINGS: Death, Dying and Unexplained Phenomena in 2010 ... a
volume that took twenty years to put into final form.
Having consumed Cannibalism and survived Death I felt passionately driven to cover the subject of Sex."
