This was such a great spring/summer read! You can read my review here. Shannon is here today to share a recipe with us, and why food plays some sort of role in all her novels. This recipe sounds perfect for a summer brunch!
Who doesn’t like a good book and a coffee? A good book, a coffee, and a cozy chair—even better!
My whole life has encompassed food and good drink in some manner. My family likes to say I was pleasantly plump as a child. I like to say I was healthy. LOL.
I remember in college when most my friends were saving for clothes, I was putting aside my tip money for a new stove top grate. And when my friends were throwing burgers and dogs on the grill at cookouts, I was marinating fresh fish or chicken.
Gosh, I even remember asking for a cookbook one year for Christmas. A cookbook I then proceeded to make every dish from.
I suppose that’s why in all my novels food plays some sort of roll. Whether it is the lollipops GiGi enjoys in Model Spy, the cinnamon coffee Parrot drinks in Native Tongue, or the elaborate concoctions Em makes in The Summer My Life Began, I finagle food and drink into everything.
In my current work in progress, one of my characters doesn’t eat at all. You have no idea how much of a challenge it is to write that! Heck, just typing the story makes me hungry!
