Thank you so much for joining me today, Amy! I am excited to introduce you to our readers, as I just finished your book, Faith and Hope, and absolutely loved it!
AA: I’m so glad you enjoyed it!
PM: Tell us what you enjoy doing the most when you are not writing or reading?
AA: I love a lot of things. I sew, paint and draw a little, crochet sometimes, and when it’s warm like now, I garden.
PM: I see in your bio that you have lived in several southern states, can you tell us what you love about Tennessee the most?
AA: I find something to love in every state I’ve lived in. Tennessee has the gorgeous hills (and mountains east of here). The spring flowers are stunning. The trees are much taller than the ones we had in Texas. And this is where my husband loves to live, so I can’t help but love it, too.
PM: If you could be a superhero, what would you want your superpowers to be?
AA: Freezing time. It always seems to either go too fast or not be abundant enough. I think if I could freeze it every now and then, maybe that would help?
PM: What was the last movie you went to see and / or what is your favorite movie?
AA: Last movie I saw was Captain Marvel. My husband got me into this crazy series, and I now look forward to it, where at first I wasn’t sure. I had never really watched many super hero things before I started dating my husband. I’m more of a romantic musical girl usually. Give me Gene Kelley or Fred Astaire or some of the others any day.
PM: What are you reading for fun right now?
AA: I’m reading Chautona Havig’s latest — Thirty Days Hath… It’s pretty cute so far. After that, I think I’m going to tackle the whole Tuscan series that Autumn Macarther is a part of because I snagged it on sale the other day.
PM: What was your most beloved book to read as a child?
AA: Probably the one with the fondest memories is Anne of Green Gables. I remember the sweet ladies who gave it to me, and then had me over to watch the movie one afternoon, too.
PM: If you couldn’t be a writer, what career path do you think you’d choose to be on?
AA: At one time I wanted to be a graphic designer, but then decided that I liked English more than art classes in college. Maybe go back to that?
PM: I see you are NOT a football fan…lol, but do you have any sport you do like? I noticed your characters liked baseball…
AA: I’d much rather play a sport than watch it. Although I can get into high school football much easier than some college or professional game on tv. I married a baseball fan, and it’s almost year-round in our house. He’s already brainwashed the kids. *laugh* I enjoy it, but not as much as my sweet husband.
PM: What is your favorite go to snack, midnight or any time?
AA: Probably pretzels more often than anything else. Although I adore chex mix, popcorn, and goldfish, too. And cookies. I’m way too much of a snacker.
PM: If you could be any character in fiction, whom would you be?
AA: Oh man! So hard, but probably Jo from Little Women. I relate to her in a lot of ways.
PM: How can readers keep up with you and your new releases?
AA: I have a website (http://abitofanguish.weebly.com) and a facebook page (facebook.com/amyanguishauthor)
PM: Finally, coffee or tea? Cream, sugar?
AA: Tea, all the way! I love a good black tea like Earl Grey or English Breakfast. Honey and milk, please.
Great questions. Thanks so much for having me!
