Yes, sorry, it’s me again. A double dose of Amy Andrews for everyone!
And no, this blog is not going to be some recipe swap fest. Sorry. I cook but I don’t live for it – having a fussy child killed any joy I used to find in the kitchen.
But I do love to eat.
Which somehow transfers across to my heroines. Strange that :-)
I recently wrote a Twistie loving heroine in Driving Her Crazy.
Mmm, lurve me some Twisties. Avoid them like the plague cos they’re just a big old carb-fest but, for the sake of this blog and its accuracy, I did go out and especially buy a packet just so I could take a picture for those who don’t have a clue what Twisties are. I also bought a violet crumble cos they look so pretty together.
I’m generous like that.
Don’t worry, no Twisties were harmed in the writing of this blog. They all found a safe home inside my intestinal tract!
It was pointed out to me recently by a reader that I tend to use food in sex scenes. I hadn’t really thought about it as a thing until it was mentioned. But yeh…in the Twisties book its marshmallows. And come to think of it, Twisties do get used too…
In The Devil and the Deep aka the pirate book, my hero uses a mango to pretty devastating effect....
In One Night She Would Never Forget there’s a cute/sexy cup-cake scene.
Hmmm, I see a pattern. Maybe I should stop writing heroines that make their men want to eat food off them?
What about you guys? Do you enjoy reading about creative use of food in books? Or can you not switch your brain off as you think about sticky skin, chocolate and whipped cream smears on the sheets and crumbs in the bed?
