Hello Amanda and Thank you for joining us today for this countdown to Christmas special with 25 Bad Boys from "Santa's Naughty List".
How long have you been a writer and how did you come to writing?
My fourth grade teacher Ms. McCarthy used to let us write poems and short stories for extra credit. I loved writing so much that I used to hand in a story or a poem about once a week to make up for my math skills. A couple of poems I had written were sent in to the local newspaper and were published. I will never forget that first time feeling of seeing my byline. I remember going into a convenience store near my house and buying up every paper they had and before I headed for home, I sprawled the paper on to the sidewalk and looked for my poems and my name. It was something special.
What inspires you to write?
I don’t need inspiration to write. I just have a need to write. It’s like breathing to me. I can’t ever see not doing it.
How did you conduct your research for "Forever Tied"?
I like to research while I write. It’s an obsessive kind of thing for me. I can’t just skip over something and go back to it later. I truly have to know then and there.
What are 3 of your favorite lines/quotes from your new release?
"Her perfectly porcelain skin was being violated with a steady flowing stream of crimson from her forehead.” “I can’t lose you sweetness. You are my forever. You always were and you always will be throughout time.” “You and him are the reason I lost Obsidian! Watching him die is your punishment."
Tell us about your other books?
Forever Tied is part of a series called Forever. Forever Friends is already out and Forever Bound will be out in early 2016. My other books are about Fibromyalgia.
