Courtney’s Cilantro Key Lime Pie Featured on Lick Ice Creams!

January 7, 2016
For Thanksgiving, Courtney shared a recipe for Cilantro Key Lime Pie and revealed that it was inspired by an ice cream flavor at a local business in Austin called Lick Ice Creams. The shop came across her article and asked to feature the recipe on their blog, so we said of course! Here's a brief excerpt:

Every time I mention this pie flavor to anyone, they always ask me why I decided to put cilantro in it, so I happily tell them about the inspiration, Lick Ice Creams, and urge them to stop by and try a scoop or two.

Courtney’s Mentee Interview for Pitch Wars

September 29, 2015
Summer Spence (Mentor), tell us a little about yourself. I read EVERYTHING. No, really. I’ve been obsessed with George R.R. Martin since 1999 (waaaaay before it was cool), grew up reading Nancy Drew, love detective novels like Sue Grafton and Sara Paretsky, Harry Potter quotes will be engraved on my tombstone, and love love love ALL Young Adult – contemp, fantasy, historical, suspense and everything in-between. The Hobbit was the first “grown-up” book I read on my own, and I’ve always wanted to go on a grand adventure… which is probably why I couldn’t put down Choose Your Own Adventure books! My writing style tends to be lyrical with a ton of literary influences, but I’m pretty grounded in the real world. I like to see how contemporary characters deal with fantastical problems. When I write, it’s all about the character — I studied classical acting in college and have learned to tumble deep into the rabbit hole of a character’s life. I like to understand WHY people do things and how that WHY changes the course of their life. And I fully believe that fictional characters can change a reader’s life. That’s why I write. Courtney LeighCourtney Leigh (Mentee), tell us a little about yourself. As far as reading tastes go, YA (any genre) and memoir are my two faves, but I try to throw in a factual but interesting nonfiction and an adult novel every once in a while. Also, MG is fun! My favorite YA authors are people like Nova Ren Suma, John Corey Whaley, Cat Winters, Megan Abbott (IMO, her last few books count as YA), Garth Nix, and many others. If I could write a book that captures the wit of 10 Things I Hate About You, the Texas grit of Friday Night Lights, and the epic yet tragic love of Moulin Rouge, I would die happy because that there would be a perfect book, y’all.
