I write a popular blog post series called The Hungry {Romance} Writer. Every so often, I’ll take a month and write about an event, with all the corresponding recipes, that happens in the world of my Deadly Force Romantic Suspense Series. These monthly events are like micro-short stories about secondary characters and celebrations. These parties occur throughout the year in the Deadly Force world, but not in the pages of the books. I hope you enjoy them!
