I’m Anne Marie Cruz, a writer and editor who love love loves food. Sandwich Surprise is my way of bringing a little culinary cheer to friends, family and other fans of food. I whip up fun sandwiches and spring them on folks, sharing the recipes and experiences here.

Along with my blog, I co-write and edit books with celebrities and historical figures. I recently wrote the 2014 PEOPLE special collector’s book about Miley Cyrus, Mad for Miley!

I’m also a magazine contributor who spent years as a PEOPLE editor and a senior reporter for ESPN The Magazine. Those dream jobs gave me the chance to travel and eat around the world, while writing, reporting and editing stories about hundreds of celebs, such as Adele, Beyoncé, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Usher, Bret Michaels, Taylor Swift, Bob Barker, Tony Bennett, Madonna, and Venus and Serena Williams.

Perhaps if I Sandwich Surprise you, I can share a story or two with you!
