Berries and Cream Pie With Romance Writer Sharleen Scott

I welcome Sharleen Scott to my blog today. Sharleen is one of the authors featured in the new release: Bake, Love, Write: 105 Authors Share Dessert Recipes and Advice on Love and Writing. Her first book, Caught in Cross Seas, was released in May. The second book in the series, Caught in the Spin, will be available soon.

What is the name of the recipe you included in Bake, Love, Write? Could you tell us a little about it, and why did you choose that recipe?

The Berries and Cream Pie recipe is one of my mom’s recipes and is an old family favorite.

Could you give a short quote of the advice you included in the book?
“Follow your heart, because only a book written from the heart will have heart. And isn’t that what romances are all about?”

Use your writerly powers of description to describe your kitchen.
My kitchen is a cozy place filled with the usual cooking paraphernalia where, more often than not, my husband and I cook together. Its meager square footage requires fancy footwork to avoid stepping on toes, but we still manage to prepare everyday suppers and holiday feasts with aplomb.

Tell us about your latest release.
Caught in Cross Seas is a romance mystery set on the Oregon coast. At its heart, it is a story of love, forgiveness, and redemption with a murder mystery tossed in to stir things up. Country music star Clay Masterson is searching for his father who supposedly died years earlier while running from a murder charge in Montana. The rumor mill says his father may not be dead and Clay is compelled to follow the rumors in hopes of finding him. His search takes him to Angel Beach where he meets homeless advocate and bakery owner, Harlie Cates. She and Clay are drawn together but their love is threatened when a local murder matches the Montana case and Harlie discovers the truth. Whether she talks or not, someone will be sacrificed and it may be Harlie who is in the most danger of all.

Bake, Love, Write
Here are more details on Bake, Love, Write below:
What do most authors have in common, no matter what genre they write? They love desserts. Sweets sustain them through pending deadlines and take the sting out of crushing rejection letters and nasty reviews. They also often celebrate their successes—selling a book, winning a writing award, making a bestseller list, or receiving a fabulous review—with decadent indulgences. And when authors chat with each other, they often talk about their writing and their lives. Recipes. Writing. Relationships. In this cookbook 105 authors not only share their favorite recipes for fabulous cakes, pies, cookies, candy, and more, they also share the best advice they’ve ever received on love and writing.
