Daydreaming: Up Close & Personal with Author, Violet Patterson

Up Close & Personal with Author, Violet Patterson

I am so excited to be featuring several authors here on my blog as a part of the First Love Blog Hope.  I wanted to give readers an intimate look at the author behind their books.  

 

Author, Violet Patterson

Violet Patterson is a northwest Ohio native who spent much of her childhood creating plays (costumes and all!) for her younger siblings to perform.  From there, she moved on to simplistic poetry and children's stories - unfortunately works like "Adventures of Super Cookie" were never released to the masses.
Ms. Patterson graduated from Miami University with a degree in social sciences. After several years in the field she decided to stop brainstorming in notebooks, on post it notes, and along the borders of her desk calendars.  Storm Sullivan was born from those efforts and eventually, "Ryder on the Storm - Emerald Seer I" was released as Ms. Patterson's debut novel. The sequel, "Light My Fire." was released in December 2011 followed by an accompanying novella, "Whiskey, Mystics, and Men" (early 2012) and the third full novel in the series, "Love Her Madly" (August 2012). The final installment, "End of the Night" is in progress with anticipated release in 2013.
Two energetic children and a part time marketing assistant position keep her active and fulfilled. 


 

SJ's Favorite Sweet Treat



Mocha Java Magic Cupcakes with Mocha Java Crème Frosting

2 ½ C. flour

3 eggs

2 tsp vanilla

1 C granulated sugar

4 tsp baking powder

12 Tbsp butter (melted)

¼ C espresso powder

1 tbsp vegetable oil

1 ¼ C brewed coffee

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Prepare cupcake tins with decorative liners.  Mix dry ingredients in one bowl and wet ingredients in a separate bowl.  Mix well.  Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the wet ingredients.  Mix well.  Fill prepared tins and bake (10-12 minutes for mini cupcakes and 15 minutes for regular cupcakes).  Cool and frost with Mocha Java Crème Frosting.


Mocha Java Crème Frosting

1 lb powdered sugar
1 C  brewed coffee (cooled to room temperature)
¾ C cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla
1 C shortening
Mix vanilla and shortening.  Add in half of the powdered sugar.  When smooth add in cocoa powder and half of the coffee.  Once evenly blended add in remaining coffee and powdered sugar.  Add cold water or powdered sugar as needed to obtain desired consistency.








What do you consider a truly romantic evening?
 

Curled up on the couch with a bottle of good wine, delicious cheese and a bit of dark chocolate to read, watch a movie, or just chat. 

        
 
What is your favorite romantic movie?


Probably The Notebook, it gets me every time.




Of your own characters whom do you consider “Most” romantic? Why?

Honestly, I think people would be surprised to know I think Lucian is the most romantic.  He has only loved one woman and his reverence for her is unparalleled in my opinion.  This gruff, sarcastic, hard man is putty in the hands of tiny, quiet Sophia Bedeaux.  How romantic is that?
What is the “Most” romantic gift you ever received? Why?


A tiny pair of shoes.  Seems so small and insignificant and probably cost nothing at all but it meant more to me than anything I received before or since.

What do you consider romantic that doesn’t cost money?
A hand resting lightly at the small of my back, meaningful conversation, a sensual backrub after a long day, a baby kisses along my jaw line and down my neck.
