For this week, we are doing something a little different here at Prism Book Alliance®. We are taking part in the Foster and Author program organized by the great ladies over that Jo and Isa Love Books. Our assigned author is Nic Starr, who we have reviewed here a number of times on Prism Book Alliance®. Brandilyn recently reviewed Andrew’s Promise.
My Name is Nic Starr and I’m a foodie
Food, glorious food.
Sometimes I think most of my life revolves around food. As a mum, I’m always planning the next meal. I spend hours each week shopping and cooking. I entertain regularly—sometimes a small dinner party, at other times, a large gathering. My husband and I are lucky enough to dine out frequently. When we are on holidays, we visit food-producing areas and buy local produce. We taste olives, oils, homemade and homegrown foods.
Food. Food. Food.
Unfortunately, my waistline suffers, but apart from that, I’ve no complaints. wink
My love affair with food started due to my love of cooking. I loved cooking so much, when I left school, I studied hospitality management. It continued when I met my husband, who’s a fellow foodie, and a wine buff.
My love affair with food has overflowed into my stories. My characters are often found preparing a meal, eating out, or entertaining. In the More Than series (http://bit.ly/1LyKjEd), a catering business features heavily. In both books of the Heroes series, Charlie’s Hero (http://bit.ly/1eq1G1u) and Andrew’s Promise (http://bit.ly/1eq1G1u), barbecues are a regular occurrence.
Thanks to the wonders of the iPhone, here are some recent food porn shots.

Title: Andrew’s Promise
Author: Nic Starr
Publisher: Dreamspinner Press
Cover Artist: Bree Archer
Genre: Contemporary, M/M Romance
Heroes: Book Two
Young mechanic Andrew Campbell’s life couldn’t be better. He is about to restore a Ford Mustang with his dad before heading off on the ultimate cross-country road trip with his best friend, Tanner McKenzie.
But tragedy strikes, and Andrew’s life is shattered. Worried his family will be torn apart if he doesn’t step in, Andrew makes a tough choice between following his heart and doing what he needs to do to protect his little brother.
When Andrew pushes Tanner away, Tanner heads off on the planned trip alone. Once Tanner leaves town, his life takes a different path, and it’s ten years before he returns. Now a firefighter, he’s never forgotten his first love, and no one has ever taken Andrew’s place in his heart. He’s determined to see if Andrew feels the same way. He just hopes Andrew’s excited to see him, hopes that he’s available—and finally out—after all this time.
They might not have been ready to deal with emerging feelings years ago, but now might be the time for their second chance at love.
About the Author
Nic Starr lives in Australia where she tries to squeeze as much into her busy life as possible. Balancing the demands of a corporate career with raising a family and writing can be challenging but she wouldn’t give it up for the world.
Always a reader, the lure of m/m romance was strong and she devoured hundreds of wonderful m/m romance books before eventually realising she had some stories of her own that needed to be told!
When not writing or reading, she loves to spend time with her family-an understanding husband and two beautiful daughters-and is often found indulging in her love of cooking and planning her dream home in the country.
You can find Nic on Facebook, Twitter and her blog. She’d love it if you stopped by to say hi.
