Author Q&A
Christine Wells, author of The Juliet Code, shares her obsession with dangerous women and the French Resistance with Word of Mouth TV. Set in wartime France when rations were in place, Christine hones in on the delicacies - all the items that weren't available, such as coffee - and relays the exquisite delight her characters experience when they sample their favourite rare fare. For Christine, the physical memory of a food can be one of the most powerful food experiences, which perhaps explains why she is going "retro" for her death-bed meal.

Author Q&A
Pamela Hart says the most difficult part of writing the The Desert Nurse was recording the endless stream of casualties from Gallipoli in a manner that wouldn't overwhelm the reader. Pamela is a research-heavy author and food also plays a key role in her novels. The Country Women's Association cookbooks are her go-to references for the food of the times. She also has a soft spot for Margaret Fulton and the chip butty.

Author Q&A
Josephine Moon reveals herself as something of a foodie in our author Q&A. Not only does food play a central role in all of her novels but at home as well, where she lives on acreage with her family and horses. She also gives us a sneak peak into her next novel, to be published in March, which is themed around coffee (for coffee addicts everywhere!), and shares some of her mother's tips on how to make the perfect potato salad. We'll be incorporating these tips into our Christmas repertoire this year for sure.

Author Q&A
Natasha Lester has answered our Q&A with gusto. She regales us with her journeys through Parisian ateliers, the Theatre du Palais Royale and the Hotels Particulier in the Marais. She was no doubt dining on glorious French baguettes and cheese all the way and we agree that no finer bread is to be found in all the world than the baguettes made in France. I am sure authors everywhere will be making a mental note to set their next novel in Paris.
