'Lunch' with Gloria Steinem

I have been doing my 'Lunch' at Michael's column for ten years this month so it is only fitting that this week's conversation with Gloria Steinem was one of the most exciting interviews I've ever done. It's not every day you meet a living legend let alone go one-on-one about some of the most important issues of the day. You can read the interview here.

Exclusive! The Cast of Poldark on the Cinematic Second Season

My cover story in the September issue of British Heritage Travel

Besides back to school, cooler temperatures and the sight of the first falling leaves scattered on the streets, September means new television shows! Poldark, one of my newest obsessions, is back for its second season on PBS on September 25. The sweeping, cinematic saga will thrill Anglophiles with its gorgeous Cornwall locations, literary lineage (its based on the novels by Winston Graham) and fine actors. Here's what the actors had to say about the breakout hit.

'Lunch' with Marianne Williamson

'Lunching' with Marianne Williamson was fun and enlightening

For my final 'Lunch' column for the summer, I was excited about sitting down with the iconic Marianne Williamson. The best selling author, motivational speaker and activist was passionate, articulate and warm. I felt like I was lunching with a very smart and worldly wise girlfriend. Her books, going back to A Woman's Worth, have always spoken directly to my heart and her newest one, Tears to Triumph The Spiritual Journey from Suffering to Enlightenment is full of insight and wisdom about how fully experiencing our emotional pain can lead to true healing.
