After writing a dozen cookbooks and 17 years of astrology columns, I launched Spellbound Publishers. I also curate live music events that always have great food. When I'm not on the magical mystery tour, you can find me on my yoga mat, reading tarot cards, or biking the trails to the nearest hot spring.

From working with ACL music festival, Lollapalooza music festival and Viva Big Bend music festival to curating music series with C3, Google Fiber, Trailer Food Tuesdays and now Side Project Sundays, I have been coordinating music series and festivals since 2000. My experience includes booking artists, festival management, and promotion. I love supporting local musicians and connecting people through music. In my alternate dreamland universe, I'm part of a huge cosmic choral band that utilizes harmony like none other.

"Tiffany Harelik did a fabulous job of capturing the true essence of Big Bend's cohesive diversity. We have an array of wildlife, people, and flavors in this desert mountain region, but everything blends perfectly together. From the starry nights and Chisos Mountains to the traditional chicken fried steak and tortilla soup, this narrative-style cookbook will not disappoint. The stories pack a punch too!" -reporter, NYC
"When I first started flipping through the pages, I started to see that this was no ordinary cookbook series. Yes, it has gorgeous full color photography, and yes it was full to the brim with detailed recipes. But this was also a story--a journey through Austin's trailer food scene, full of anecdotes from the trailer owners and chefs. Love that it expanded to other cities!" -food writer, Ohio
