What is The Food Temptress?
The Food Temptress is a fiction novel about a 30-year-old single woman named Ambrosia (meaning - food and/or drink of the gods) who uses food to seduce men and it converts them into the perfect guy. Set in New Orleans, she captures the hearts and minds of different men, ranging from the local sheriff to a Bourbon Street musician. Each short story serves up a delectable treat connected by Ambrosia’s continuing quest for both romantic and culinary perfection.
How did you come up with the concept for the novel?
I developed the concept from the adage, “a way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.” I took my own interpretation and expanded upon it by using my creativity. As result, I birthed The Food Temptress.
Looking at the book now, what surprises you?
I was surprised at all the men that Ambrosia dated – 16 total.
What do you want readers to take from your book?
I long for readers to have an emotional connection to my characters.
Who are some of your favorite writers?
Some of my favorite writers are as follows: Maya Angelou, Venise Berry, John Grisham, Michelle Mckinney Hammod, Jill Nelson, and Jennifer Weiner.
What are you reading now?
I am reading “Life with McDuff: Lesson Learned from a Therapy Dog” by Judy McFadden and “Excessive Baggage” by Sean Gardner.
What’s next for your writing career?
The sequel, “The Food Enchantress,” comes out in mid-April by Xpress Yourself Publishing Company. I am working on a cookbook that comes out in November. In addition, I am finishing a historical fiction featuring a female pharaoh and I am writing a fiction novel, “Mama Don’t Like Ugly.”
