Carmen WisenbakerABOUT CARMEN:

Carmen Wisenbaker is the owner of Penworth Publishing (which was established in the year 2000) and is now known as the “Texas Food Blogger.” She is a retired marketing visionary that loves keeping busy working on her own projects.

Armed with more than 40 years of experience, Carmen loves creating products with a real Texas flair. Known for her energy, passion and “get-it-done” attitude, she loves blogging about her favorite “hole-in-the-wall” cafés, small town living topics, and even posting some interesting Texas sights along the way.

Her Motto…

“I play really HARD at doing what I LOVE… so I don’t have to go back to working really HARD doing what I HATE!”
