As many of you have heard, my writing process has a great deal to do with caffeine consumption. Just as I swap out music from book to book, I also have a different signature drink for each manuscript– my go to beverage, so to speak.
For your amusement, here’s the coffee chart for the last four books:
— The Ashford Affair (winter/spring 2012): grande caramel mocha with whip.
— The Passion of the Purple Plumeria (summer 2012): grande caramel macchiato. (Miss Gwen scorned whipped cream as excessively fluffy.)
— The Victorian Book (fall/winter 2012): grande skim cinnamon dolce steamer with whip. (Since I wasn’t allowed caffeine, I tried to make up for it with a super dose of sugar.)
— Pink XI (spring/summer 2013): grande skim hazelnut steamer with whip. (I’m still not allowed caffeine, but at least I can mix it up a bit! And Sally Fitzhugh strikes me as a hazelnut sort of girl, don’t you think?)
What are your favorite coffee beverages?
