Crunchy, Tasty Bitterballen

In Plato Crater, there is a sub-plot around Holly, a young thief who is sentenced to community service at an antique Indonesian restaurant in the Netherlands. Blauw Zwaluw is one of the last restaurants licensed to burn hydrocarbons for the preparation of Dutch rijsttafel dishes.

In one scene Holly learns to cook bitterballen, the amazing, crunchy Dutch bar snack. I’ve shared  my favourite bitterballen recipe in a guest post on Cat Rambo’s blog

Plato Crater is Coming

The sequel to the Hills of Mare Imbrium is getting closer. Beta readers are giving me their views on Jonah, Yesha, and my brand new character Holly.
Plato Crater extends the story and takes it in twisty new directions. I even have a working blurb:

Jonah never expected to be back in Houston after his brother died. He would rather have stayed on the Moon with the woman he loves than face his father, or his ex-girlfriend and her drug-dealing brother. The faceless Council of Panamerica might send him back, if he agrees to their terms.
Holly just wanted to steal her breakfast. Now she’s cooking for a crowd of hungry marines and trying hard not to be terrified by the lunar mountains outside the window.
Yesha is struggling to be the Empress of the Moon her people want. The people are restless; everyone is talking about the new European base in Plato Crater; and the droids are behaving even stranger than usual.
Three people’s lives intertwine in a sweeping tale of choices that leave them questioning what it even means to be human.
