A few months ago, I had a discussion with a few associates over coffee. The topic of the conversation was a television show called "Shark Tank." I had watched it a few times and thought that it was intriguing. My associates found it captivating.

During a recent book signing in Washington, D.C., I autographed some books and prepared my famous vegan crab cakes.
