Winner of the African American Literary Award for Mystery & Suspense
No chef creates alone and after penning 9 novels, I certainly had no plans to write a cookbook. It was my nephew Michael Thomas who changed my mind, insisting that I create a book of the recipes that my family and friends enjoy. Was it hard? Yes. Did I gain weight? Yes.
Once I understood that there were many similarities in creating a meal and writing a book, I was able to fulfill Michael’s request. Allowing the ingredients to act as my characters, and the directions my plot culminated in a titillating dance on my tastebuds and an orgasmic climax deep in my belly, making it a sublime gastronomic journey to be experienced either alone, or with those you love. I chose those I love.
Winner of the African-American Literary Award, for her novel Woman On Top, Brenda L. Thomas is the author of several books including the Essence bestselling novels, Threesome, Fourplay, and The Velvet Rope. Refusing to be held to a particular genre, Brenda writes everything from mystery and suspense to psychological thrillers. Her passion though is traveling the country discussing her memoir, Laying Down My Burdens. When she’s not writing—which is rare—Brenda can be found at her home in Philadelphia chasing squirrels away from her garden and researching her next erotic short.
