Can you really taste the pages?

March 1, 2017

Food. We all have our favorite meals. You have your favorite restaurants. What about in books? In my first book, Murder by Deadline, a main character cooks up onions, green and red peppers and sliced up sausage with a special sauce. I thought if you wanted to know more about a character, what better way than what that character eats. I tried to put the sizzle on the page. I kept up that thought when a plot twist was delivered, pardon the pun, at a dinner. In my book Pearls, I have a IT tech person who downs energy drinks. In one conversation with my main character, he popped a few of them, all while answering key questions to move the plot. Food can take center-stage and become part of the backdrop without too much fanfare. And yet, it is important. I am sure you have your favorite book and for sure, the characters will be involved with food. It says a lot about the character. So, as you devour your books, eat up what's written on the page. And enjoy. Pass the butter...
