MBA&M: Amy, please tell our readers a little about yourself?


AMY: I am originally from Louisville, Ky, am a huge University of Kentucky Wildcats basketball fan and have been writing stories since I was five years old. The only thing I love more than writing is going to the movies and my favorite movie last year was Silver Linings Playbook, with a close second being Skyfall.

MBA&M: What was your inspiration behind “SINS OF MY FATHER”?


AMY: I love Daniel Craig’s James Bond and I thought he was perfect casting for the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. The idea that perhaps the wounded womanizer could be redeemed and the girl could get the guy was very appealing. That and I wanted the heroine to be totally kick ass while retaining an air of vulnerability as opposed to someone who was bitter and angry was something I wanted to try on.

MBA&M: What made you want to write this genre?


AMY: I love dark fiction with a heart and I’m always down for a good love story.

MBA&M: How hard was it to write this title?


AMY: In some ways it wasn’t hard at all. Certain aspects of this title were easy to conjure, such as the pain Gemini is going through and her desire for comfort and security. The hard part was writing 60K, I’d never written a tale that long before.

MBA&M: What was the hardest scene to write?

AMY:  Her flashbacks to the abuse. Why? It conjured up a lot of old fears and anxieties.

MBA&M: Was this title based on actual facts or purely fiction?

AMY: I never knew a secret agent man and I wouldn’t begin to know how to shoot a gun, but bad stuff similar to what happened in Gemini’s past has happened to me. Not that I was ever involved in a sex slave ring.

MBA&M: What is your favorite genre to read?

AMY: Anything that’s fit to print.

MBA&M: If you could be a character in a book,who would you be,why?


AMY: I’d be Jo March, because she was a determined young writer who got the guy at the end of the story and the publication deal.

MBA&M: If you could dine with anyone,real or fiction,who would it be, where would you go and why?


AMY: It’s a tie. Maurice Benard of General Hospital to a restaurant to talk because he shows what it’s like to thrive with a diagnosis of bipolar disorder. And Daniel Craig, anywhere because he inspires the heroes I write and his James Bond helped me reach down deep and do my best work.

MBA&M: Where are some of your favorite places to visit?

AMY: I would love to visit New York or LA specifically, or just travel. But I love the movie theater, the bookstore, and my favorite restaurants.

MBA&M: Amy, thank you for spending time with us and our readers today!  Please tell us where to connect with you and where we may purchase “SINS OF MY FATHER”?

AMY: When Sins of My Father is released, it will be available on KINDLE and all online bookstores and on my website. It is slated to be released on Jan. 1, 2014 by Intrigue Publishing.

Thank you for spending time with us and our readers today. What an interesting Q&A.
