Anyone who has vacationed in the beautiful Catskill Mountains knows the village of Ellenville, and no visit to Ellenville was complete without a stop in Cohen's Quality Bakery, "Home of the World Famous Raisin Pumpernickel." Cohen's Bakery owners Ruby and Reginia Cohen struggled together for over fifty years to build a lasting legacy for their grandchildren and financial security for themselves in their retirement years, yet it took only a handful of outsiders less than eighteen months to destroy everything they worked their entire lives to acquire. This is the true account of the events that lead to the near destruction of our family at the hands of my cousins, a court appointed guardian, and one of the most powerful Elder Law attorneys in South Florida. It is a story of determination, fortitude and of the victory, which inspired the creation of the National Association To Stop Guardian Abuse. They say blood is thicker than water, but you can't bathe in it, you can't cook with it, and blood tastes lousy with scotch.

About the author (2006)

Robin Cohen Westmiller decided to become a journalist when she discovered that showing a "Press Pass" gave her access to areas and people that others never get to see. During her freshman year at the University of Missouri-Columbia, she fell in love with the college's radio station and changed majors, schools, and careers. At Syracuse University, she worked at several radio stations including WELV in her hometown of Ellenville, New York. Combining her journalistic skills and radio industry background, she created the novel Red Wine For Breakfast, set in the volatile world of a Los Angeles radio station. From her experience working a summer job in the U.S. Postal Service, she wrote her second novel First Class Male, the story of a small town postmaster who secretly edits the manuscript of a NY City District Attorney and becomes the target of blackmail, jealousy and revenge. Both novels are written under her pen name of Raven West. A mid-life crisis in 2003 led her to enter the Southern California Institute of Law, a decision, which later turned out to be fortuitous in her fight to rescue her father from the clutches of a Florida court appointed guardian. Once again, combining her real life experience with the power of the written word, she penned this memoir, Blood Tastes Lousy With Scotch. Robin is the President and founder of the National Association to Stop Guardian Abuse and a member of the Authors Guild, Ventura County Bar Association, and National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys. She lives in Southern California with her husband Bill. They have three daughters, Tandy, Kimberly and Michelle. Visit Robin Cohen Westmiller online at http://ravenwest.net.
