Prism Book Alliance® would like to thank Pat Henshaw for stopping by today on the 2016 GRL Author Spotlight Tour. Please give them a warm welcome.
10 Favorites of Pat You Didn’t Know
Brandilynn suggested that authors come up with lists of Top 10 Things We Love about GRL. While I love a good list as much as the next person, I haven’t been to GRL before. But writing a top 10 list is a great idea. So thinking about Top 10s, I’ve been floundering around a lot.
At first I thought I’d make a list that had something to do with one of my past jobs: theatrical costumer, interviewer, features writer, newspaper librarian, reference librarian, and English composition instructor. I could come up with pretty funny lists from those. But they weren’t really me.
And I wanted to write a list that’s really, really me for this GRL blog piece.
So after a lot of soul-searching, I came up with this:
PAT HENSHAW’S FAVORITES:
Pie: Lemon meringue
Architect: Antonio Gaudi
Town: Pacific Grove, California
Hobby: Miniatures creating
English actor: Sir Ian McKellan
Nintendo game: Legend of Zelda
Shoes: Keen Mary Janes, the more colorful the better
Hardware tool: Utility knife
Artist: M. C. Escher / Salvador Dali / Rene Magritte
Woods: Muir Woods National Monument
That’s it! Top 10 Pat Henshaw favorites. Try doing it with your name. It’s lots of fun.
Oh, yes, and if you’d like a quick summer read, try one of the Foothills Pride series books. They are all stand-alones, but sometimes the characters travel from book to book.
Relative Best, #5 in the series, releases August 17 from Dreamspinner Press, so be on the lookout for it.
Have a great summer!
Title: When Adam Fell
Author: Pat Henshaw
Publisher: Dreamspinner Press
Cover Artist: AngstyG
Genre: Contemporary, Fiction, Gay, Gay Fiction, Gay Romance, Romance
Release Date: 02/24/2016
When his lover Jason’s drug addiction spiraled out of control, TV celebrity chef and cookbook author Adam de Leon walked away from him. Adam also abandoned his renowned restaurant in San Francisco to start a small bistro in the Sierra Foothills.
Five years later Adam is battling the conservative leaders of Stone Acres, California, to open a new restaurant in historic Old Town when Jason turns up on his doorstep—a recovered Jason, now going by the name David and claiming he’s overcome his addictions. What’s more, he begs Adam to take him back and says he’s ready for their happily ever after.
Adam has enough on his plate with problems plaguing the opening of his restaurant. And now he’s having a hard time deciding which to follow—his head or his heart.
