ME: Can you give us a brief description of each other. Starli Cameron, you go first in describing Joel.
Starli: Sir Joel Peterman-Blair is a topnotch, famous and in-demand chef. He's volunteered hours serving those in third world countries. He's blond good-looking and trim, but with his sanguine personality, his teasing does get on my nerves quite a bit. He's too over-confident and too flirty, in my opinion.As a nephew to my matre de, I felt obligated to hire him, even when I know it will be a temporary job.
Joel: Tickled to get to describe my favorite person in the whole world, and by that, I'll glad confess I fell in love with the Appleton Ice Maiden, or as I prefer to call her, My Princess or Your Majesty. She's a bit haughty and seems cold to those who don't know her--and Starli, cover your ears, that's a good girl--but it's only because she hurts so much from the deceased monster who was her husband. She's an exceptional pianist and a really good ice skater. She loves the winter time. She's a white-blond beauty who trusts few people but those who are really close to her.
ME: You sound perfect for each other, and I'm assuming you get together? No answer? Hmmm. Next question: Why did you choose you particular careers?
Joel: I've always loved to cook and create outstanding recipes. Once I graduated from cooking school, I've worked in several famous restaurants and have done a lot of charity work for those less fortunate. Having a lawyer as a father, naturally he wanted me to follow in his footsteps but I was totally not interested. Fortunately, Uncle Lawrence made sure I could do what I was called to do--create and cook.
Starli: I wanted to be a professional pianist, but gave it up to marry Ryan Stratton. When he died, I inherited his insurance and started Apple Blossoms, the classiest restaurant around Charleston, WV. I have live music, and insist on the best chef and food. Even though I can't cook--really!--I love my restaurant. It's my anchor.
ME: When will this book be available?
Joel and Starli glance at each other, grinning. Together they say: Late spring. More than that, we're not allowed to say. It's the second book in the series (Sabotaged Christmas is the first one), and we hope you enjoy our story! We do. :)
ME: Thanks for joining us. We hope to hear more from you two at a later time!
She and her husband reside in SE Ohio but have ministered and counseled nationally and internationally. Together, they enjoy their grandsons, traveling, gardening, good food, the simple life, and did she mention their grandsons?
