I'm happy to have debut novelist, Larry Timm, as a guest on my blog today. Readers are intrigued, and one says: "Hard to believe this is Larry's first novel. The characters and situations pull you into the story and keep you turning page after page looking for resolution in this suspenseful read. Highly recommended!"
The recipe that follows is for a pie that Larry's wife makes every year for him on Father's Day. Looks delicious!
About Larry . . .
Larry's a husband, father, preacher, and writer who loves creating stories with heart, soul, and high doses of adrenaline. His goal is to use the power of words to illustrate the battle between good and evil that goes on all around us. And his prayer is that the stories he writes will show the redemption and restoration that are available through Jesus Christ.
And the recipe . . .
Cream Puff Pie
Yields: 2 pies
1 cup water
½ cup butter
¼ tsp. salt
1 cup flour
Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease 2 glass pie pans. In small sauce pan, heat water, butter, and salt to rolling boil. While stirring, add in flour. Stir vigorously over low heat about 1 minute or until mixture forms a ball. Remove from heat; put mixture into large bowl and beat in eggs, all at one time, until smooth. Spread mixture in bottom only of pie pans. Bake 25-40 minutes (depending on your oven) or until outside edges are puffed and golden. Let cool.
2 big boxes (6 serving size), instant vanilla pudding
1 quart whipping cream
1 cup powdered sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
2 cups milk
Chill metal bowl and mixer beaters. Pour whipping cream into bowl. Add powdered sugar and vanilla and beat until cream forms peaks. In a separate large bowl, mix vanilla pudding and milk until well blended. Spoon whipped cream into pudding and fold in. When blended, spoon or pour mixture into crusts. Chill several hours or ideally overnight before serving.
About the novel . . .
MURDER FOR EMILY’S SAKE is a gritty suspense novel about three women who are used to defending the lives of the unborn, but who now must fight for their own lives after a deranged man blames them for the tragic death of his pregnant daughter, Emily. The three women --- Lindsay Birk, Nancy Gunn, and Kathy Schultz --- meet Emily outside of an abortion clinic and help her see that the life inside her womb is a sacred gift from God. Emily decides to carry her child to delivery, but, due to a rare complication, she dies in the delivery room. And her father begins hunting the three women, vowing that he will not stop until he has buried them all, just like he had to bury his precious daughter. But there is one terrifying difference…they will be alive when he puts them in their graves.
