Welcome Corinne Davies!!!

Today my guest is Corinne Davies who authors delightfully exotic romance novels. She'll be sharing her thoughts on the following question. "If you could organize a dinner party, which fictional characters (choose some from your own books too ) would you invite and what would you cook?" After reading Corinne's most interesting sharing, please stop by Regan Taylor's blog where you can read my thoughts on the same question. Now, here's Corinne ---
First off, a big thank you the lovely Sharon Poppen for allowing me to invade her blog today. I can’t believe that our blog tour is already over half way to the end. Don’t forget to comment at the bottom and get your name in the draw for this week’s book.
There really is only one thing that I can say I cooked very well and that is stuffed shells. It’s my one claim to cooking fame. Other then maybe toast…I can make toast. I tried to do a beautiful marinated pork roast on the bbq once. After following all the instructions carefully, I ended up setting my husband’s new bbq on fire. It wasn’t a pretty sight and I have been banned from using it unless he is there to supervise.  Honestly, I am a terrible cook, but thankfully I had the foresight to marry a man who is very good at it. Without him I’m sure I would have starved long ago.
But, much like my books this is a fantasy  J
In my fantasy I whipped up a fantastic dinner. It’s been hotter than Hades around here so let’s do something outside.  We’ll have grilled chicken breasts with a spicy peach glaze, and a grilled red potato salad with bacon blue cheese dressing for dinner. I’ll match that with one of my favourite white wines, Flat Rock Twisted.

I love this picture and it’s too perfect inspiration for the rest of my meal. We’ll be dining on Ecstasy Lake. (Which means all those lovely lanterns are filled with citronella as well LOL) and the most important guest.

Tonight I’m dining with 3XTC’s dj, Kris Beauvert.  Kris is a secondary character that has been on the fringes of most of my Lake books. He’s sits in his DJ booth on the second floor of one of the lake side buildings. Up there he sees everything that is going on around him. He’s the local historian, the keeper of the Blavet museum and all around town gossip. There isn’t anything that happens that he doesn’t know about but I don’t know much about him personally and I think that is going to change. I think that Kris holds a lot town secrets that I need to know. It might take 2 bottles of Twisted to get the information out of him but I’m up to the challenge. ;)

Bon Appetite

Corinne Davies writes paranormal ménage romances set in a small town outside of Ontario’s Algonquin Park. She spends far too much time on Facebook and loves to interact with her readers there.!/corinne.davies.52

Getting to know Corinne more about this author you can visit her website at

Corinne Davies reads anything she can get her hands on from the side of a cereal box to a historical book on the Riflemen during the Napoleonic wars. During her younger years, she first put pen to paper in an attempt to write a love story between her and her favourite rock singer of the time. It was filled all the angst that only a teenager can come up with and an incredible wardrobe.

In her senior year of high school she tried again. This time, the story was more like Clash of the Titans meets Robin Hood. Despite the unusual combination, the lack of plot, and a horrendous amount of dialogue, she received a lot of encouragement from her grade 12 English teacher. (Thank you Mrs Harvey!)

During the wee hours of the morning, when her first daughter insisted on waking up, she discovered online RPGs and her love of writing emerged again. After many encouraging words from fellow writers, she decided to try her hand at developing her own stories. Something, she quickly learned, was not as easy as she had imagined.

By day, she is a full-time wife, mother, and product consultant. At night, she avoids such mundane tasks as housework and laundry by creating her own worlds where mythology comes to life. Worlds in which you are just as likely to be living next door to an ancient Deity as finding an mystic treasure in the attic.

Check out Corinne's website for more of her exciting novels, but to whet your your appetite here are her four '3xtacy Lake Series' covers.

I really struggled with this question. Who would I chose, from all the books I have read, to have dinner with? I decided I didn't want to have dinner with a fictional character, I wanted a real character who has become larger than life and who could hopefully teach me so much about writing. I would make a pork loin roast, garlic potatoes and sauteed green beans. And I would make the night last as long as possible so I could learn from this master of the craft.

Susan Roebuck said...

I could eat dinner on that little raft too! Lovely - and. as you say, a great source of inspiration

Gina said...

You swept me away again, Corinne! Beautiful photo. Sharon, your blog is beautiful, thank you both and have a great week.

Sharon Poppen said...

Tracy, You had me at pork loin roast and yes, a real character would be nice. I'd give anything to meet Leon Uris.
Susan, Yep, that raft sounds pretty good to me, too!
Gina, Thanks. I appreciate your support.

That is such a great photo. The waiter would have to have a boat to bring the next course. Mmmm...maybe an Italian godlier type guy.

In the Ooooold days there was a character on a Nick at Night rerun show called Bewitched. Her name was Gladys Kravitz and she was the neighbourhood see and tell all. If you are itching to find out who dun it, this kind of character could sure come in handy. And oh, if he is a delish man, well that is icing on the cake.

Thanks for the fun post!

Sharon Poppen said...

Christine, Thanks for stopping by. I remember Gladys. Great character. She sure stirred up many plots on that funny show. Oh, and can we share the gondolier?
