This is a not just a book, these are stories you can taste. Dancing in Time Playing with Fire is a culinary, artistic and global adventure that opens worlds few people experience Dancing in Time, Playing with Fire is a phoenix tale of triumph, despair, adventure, endurance, loss, and renewal. It is a story of our times which arcs from American suburbia of the 1950s, through the footloose days of hitchhiking, hippies, and Altamont of the 1960s, to the worlds of music, education, and law into the 21st century. The story moves from California to Sri Lanka to England; from swimming pools to concert stages, and from a dirt floor basement on Cannery Row to the halls of the California Supreme Court. Along the way you meet athletes and biologists, actors and musicians, Tarzan and Poe, teachers and attorneys, remarkable foods of the world ... and two pigeons.

About the Author
After high school she alternated between living "on the road" and getting a college degree. In the process, she worked as a motel maid, pizza cook, professional sailing crew and sailboat salesperson, advertising and television show writer, stuntwoman, sanitarium attendant, dormitory housekeeper, church cleaning lady, mortuary attendant, carpet mill worker, tour guide, movie extra and stunt person, apartment painter, and swimming instructor.
In later years she was a teacher and professional musician. As a studio and performing artist she played viola in several orchestras and performed in live shows with artists such as Gordon MacRae, Sammy Davis Jr., George Benson, Smokey Robinson, and Vincent Price.
Eventually Sineidin O'Niall ended up practicing law for almost 30 years as both a successful trial and appellate attorney in State and Federal Courts.
Most recently the road called her name once again and she packed her two new kitties and one fluffy dog in a van and headed east. She now lives in Lubec, Maine where she is enjoying a dramatic lack of success as an artist and Celtic fiddler.
