Today we’re chatting with author Victoria Foyt on her newest novel in the Save the Pearls series, titled Adopting Eden.
How has Eden matured or grown since Revealing Eden?
Out of all the research you’ve done for this book series, what’s the most interesting fact you’ve uncovered?
I love chocolate. Okay, I admit that I’m addicted to it. During the course of my research on the rainforest, I learned that Theobroma cacao, the evergreen tree that produces the beans from which chocolate is produced, might be a casualty of global warning. Successful cultivation of cacao requires a delicate balance of heat, shadow and humidity. Its ideal habitat lies within a narrow corridor at the equator. But a recent study predicted that the current areas where cacao best grows will no longer be suitable by 2050. Yikes! Of course, this would be one of the more trivial consequences of a planetary meltdown. Nevertheless, I have begun to stockpile my favorite dark chocolate bars!
