Interview with Liz Grace Davis, author of Chocolate Aftertaste!


I am pleased to have author Liz Grace Davis on Full Moon Bites today to talk about her book Chocolate Aftertaste! :)

Holly: Hi Liz! Would you tell us a little bit about yourself?

Liz Grace Davis: I was born in Angola and grew up in Namibia, South Africa, and Germany. I now live in Vienna, Austria with my husband.
My mother was a diplomat. That’s why I got to move around so much. On one hand I loved it; getting to know new people, experiencing various cultures, seeing beautiful countries, and learning new languages. On the other hand, it was never easy to leave my newfound friends behind.

I studied international business consultancy, worked for the United Nations for a while, and am now studying towards my master’s degree of International Management.
Holly: When did you realize that you would like to write and publish a book?

Liz Grace Davis: I just started writing, for myself at first. Last year my husband talked me into sharing my stories with the world. I’m happy to be here.

Holly: Can you tell us a little bit about Chocolate Aftertaste?

Liz Grace Davis: Chocolate Aftertaste is my second novel. It is a story of choices and how they impact our lives. For years Nora has allowed her controlling father to be the man behind the steering wheel of her life. Until one day she realizes he isn’t always right. She then decides she wants the control of her life back in her own hands. As a result, she risks losing the only family she has, but stands to gain her freedom and hopefully find love. And she does, after overcoming a few obstacles.

Holly: What was the inspiration for this novel?

Liz Grace Davis: Life and the choices we make…or don’t make. The dreams we give up to please others.

Holly: Can we expect more novels from you in 2012?

Liz Grace Davis: Yes, Honeysuckle & Jasmine, a women’s fiction novel, will be published in December.

Holly: Can you tell us a little about your first publishing experience?

Liz Grace Davis: When I published my first book, Tangi’s Teardrops, I was frightened but excited at the same time. I was so scared that people might not like the book. I’m so happy I was wrong.

Holly: How much of you or people you know do you think make it into the characters in your novel(s)?

Liz Grace Davis: The main character in Tangi’s Teardrops was 90% me. The novel was inspired by my childhood. None of the characters in Chocolate Aftertaste were inspired by people I know.

Holly: Do you think you will have a follow up book to this novel or is it just a stand-alone novel?

Liz Grace Davis: No, the novel is done. Nora’s story has been told. I’m letting her live the rest of her life as she pleases.

Holly: Can you tell us a few do’s and don’ts for aspiring authors?

Liz Grace Davis: Do write what you feel passionate about. Not what you think you should write.
Don’t give up on your dream of becoming an author.

Holly: Do you have anything you would like to say to your readers?

Liz Grace Davis: Thank you for giving my books a chance. For helping me live my dream. You’re the reason I write that next word.

Holly: Is there a genre that you love to read, and would like to write, but just can not?

Liz Grace Davis: Historical romance. Maybe one day I’ll have the guts.

Random Quickies!


Holly: When do you prefer to read?

Liz Grace Davis: At night.

Holly: Vampires or Werewolves?

Liz Grace Davis: Vampires.

Holly: Ebook or hardcover/paperback?

Liz Grace Davis: Paperback. I love the feel and smell of paper.

Holly: Favorite book to movie?

Liz Grace Davis: The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks.

Holly: Swimming pool or ocean/lake?

Liz Grace Davis: Ocean please.


Chocolate Aftertaste
by Liz Grace Davis

 
Purchase: Amazon
 
At her pre-wedding dinner, Nora Darkin, the daughter of a wealthy entrepreneur, discovers her fiancé is not the man she thought he was. As her father hoists his glass to toast them, she makes an announcement: there will be no wedding to her father's right-hand man.

Due to the fresh rift driven between her and her father, Nora escapes to the quaint town of Dreara. Determined to live her life her own way, she makes new friends and pursues her lifelong desire of becoming a chef. Ethan Danes, a neighbour with his own broken heart, helps soothe hers.

Just as Nora discovers what it means to be happy, and she begins to fall in love with Ethan, a woman from his past re-enters his life…


Nora turned her attention back to the reality in front of her. She hated arguments; sometimes she wished she could hide somewhere, just wait them out. Unfortunately, life was not like that.
She lifted her eyes to meet Liam’s. The ice in his eyes had not melted. She dropped her gaze.
Instead of flirting with her appetite, the large marinated tiger prawns made her stomach queasy, and the oriental noodles looked like neglected yarn left out in the rain. From the way he dissected his steak, Liam’s appetite was just fine. She gritted her teeth as his knife scraped the porcelain plate.
Unable to bear the silence between them, she leaned forward and whispered, “I hate it when you ignore me.”
“What do you want me to say?” He chewed the last of his food and waved for the waiter. “We’re done.”
The waiter nodded and scuttled over to remove their plates.
When the waiter was out of earshot, Nora hissed through clenched teeth, “I wasn’t done.”
Liam took a swig of water, probably wishing it were something stronger. “You didn’t look like you were hungry.”
“Stop treating me like a child,” she snapped.
“Stop acting like one.”
Nora’s cheeks heated. She contained her anger with difficulty. “That’s really insensitive.”
“What do you want from me, Nora?” A vein pulsed in his neck. “What exactly do you want me to say?”
“Say you want me to be happy.” Her eyes brimmed. “Don’t ask me to get rid of my best friend.”
He loosened his tie—and then slammed his fist on the table, knocking over Nora’s glass of water. The silver stream raced straight for her lap.
The waiter appeared as if from nowhere to replace the white tablecloth with a new one. Nora forced a smile and whispered an apology. The waiter nodded, and a minute later he left.
Ignoring the curious looks they got from the other diners, she dabbed at the moisture on her black jeans. “You can’t always explode every time I refuse to do what you want.”
Liam ignored her. “Ask to pay. I want to leave.”
Nora flinched, but abided. Paying wasn’t so bad—so long as it was fair. On their first and second date, he paid. On their third and a few more after that, they went Dutch. After one year, he asked her to pay for an occasional meal until it became an unspoken arrangement between them. The only thing Liam had paid for himself in three years was her engagement ring.


Liz Grace Davis grew up in Angola, Namibia, South Africa and Germany. She now lives with her husband in Vienna, Austria.
Growing up, Liz spent most her days in libraries, diving into the world of books. In her spare time she reads a lot, travels, creates jewelry and designs digital scrapbooks. That's of course when she's not weaving stories. She's in her element whenever she is doing anything that requires creativity.
Liz is the author of a young adult fantasy novel, Tangi's Teardrops, and a romantic women's fiction novel, Chocolate Aftertaste.
