Today I am very happy to be introducing K.A. Fox, author of The Devil's Own. Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy schedule to write a piece for Good Books & Tasty Morsels.
When I was younger, I spent a few summers with my aunt and uncle at their farm. Usually, my parents were in the middle of a big move or really wanted me to have a chance to spend time with family I got to see only once every two or three years. Going to the farm was a BIG deal for me. I rode in the old truck with my cousins and learned how to convince cows they really didn’t want to hang out in the road. My uncle let me practice driving through the fields like every other farm kid did growing up, fighting to get the ancient stick shift into the right gear. But the absolute best thing about my visits was baking with my aunt. I can honestly say my Aunt Jeanette has the gift. We’d make bread, pies, cakes – rows and rows of them – with her telling me to add a pinch of this and a tiny shake of that and then we’d pack them all up to take to the Farmer’s Market in town. She always sold out. Her baking was legendary. And when she opened her diner with a green door in their small hometown, it was always filled with people. There were cinnamon rolls that covered the plate, giant homemade hamburger buns, and whatever pies she was in the mood for that day. I have so many wonderful memories because of the time I was able to spend there. So, when I wrote a story about the daughter of the Devil and the tiny Midwest town she lives close to, I absolutely had to include a diner, with a green door, and such amazing apple pie that not even a Hell Hound could resist it. I’d share the recipe with all of you, but she doesn’t have one. It’s all about how everything looks, feels and tastes in that moment. It fascinates me and drives me crazy. It’s like watching magic happen. ~K.A. Fox
