Food or Fiction? Or Both Here comes Mina Khan

I  just had the great opportunity to cook and interview San Angelo local food writer and book author, Mina Khan with my friend Michelle Morrow.
Mina Khan's debut great novella 
 "The Djinn's Dilemma" 
  will be in bookstores near you  
November 1, 2011.

Can't wait? Pre-order your copy at Amazon.com or Barnes and Nobles.com. We had an awesome time here at Mama Nida's Asian Market.

So what's the book about? Well, Let me tell ya!

It's a novel worth waiting for....

Rukh O’ Shay, half-djinn and assassin, is used to taking out the bad guys. But his latest assignment, Sarah White, is nothing like he expected. A glimpse of her bright aura reveals her gentle spirit, while her luscious beauty clouds his mind and makes him long for only one thing—to taste her.

Sarah shares the feeling of raw desire at Rukh’ s touch. He can turn her on with a glance, and satisfies desires she didn’ t even know she had. But Rukh had been hired to kill her—and the only way to save her is to find out who wants her dead before someone else finishes the job…. 


When you say Djinn..are they like the genies that come out of lamp and ride the carpet?
"No,It's nothing like the genies you see in movies that comes out of a lamp, vase, or rings. The Djinn I wrote about is base on Bangladesh folklore and the stories that the old ladies in the  kitchen talked about...they are like us except they have special abilities."

As a food writer, how did you collaborate food into your story?
"Well, I've incorporated food in my book such as Rukh taste like dark chocolate...and Sarah smells like Vanilla...."

 With such an intense story plot, is there a happy ending?
"Of course there is happy ending. You'll just have to read the book when it comes out."

Follow her blogs: Mina Khan as the Novel Author or as the Food writer. Either way you're in for some good reading and conversations.

 I want to let everyone know this lady is awesome! I had a fun time with great food and great conversations. And thank you Michelle for setting this lunch up.
