I’m currently writing two books. Lyrics Are Life which is about a rocker chick and a country singer. And Get Even which is about a woman who is out to get revenge on her ex boyfriend.
~Who is your favorite author?
This is not an easy question, lol. How about I say Jennifer L. Armtentrout and Johanna Wylde
~What writing advice do you have for aspiring authors?
Write what you want and don’t listen to anyone else about it.
~Which of your characters is your Book Boyfriend? Why?
Courtney Pierce from Save Me (Make or Break, #3) Because his book has been my absolute easiest book to write. I see a lot of myself in him, which might be weird but it is what it is. Plus he’s sexy and alpha. What more could you love?
~Are you an organized author or scattered?
I like to say I’m scattered organized. I know where everything is but if you went through my stuff you would think it was all scattered. >.<
~Do you plot out your story or write as it goes?
Write as goes. I have a place I want to go, but I don’t map it out before I begin.
~Which one of your characters is your absolute favorite? Why?
Channing Southerland from Make Me (Make or Break, #1) because he was the most challenging character I have ever had. He kept his secrets close to him until the very end of the book. Plus he’s just awesome.
~Which one is your least favorite? Why?
Jaden Harper from my young love series. He’s an asshole and has never tried to redeem himself. I know that I’m his creator but let me tell you, that doesn’t mean I can control my characters. It’s why he will never have his own book. I’ll never write a book I don’t want too, and that is one I don’t want to write. Plus I want to punch him in the face so he’d probably die within the first chapter.
~Do you have writers block and how do you work around it?
I’ve had writers block with every book. Sometimes it lasts for a few days or it can last indefinitely. I have a book I started last April that I probably will never finish because I got stuck. I will generally just constantly listen to the playlist for that book to get over the block. I usually end up with a better idea and can move on in the story.
~Do you work on 1 story at a time or multiples?
I have up until last month only wrote one book at a time. Now I’ve graduated to writing two. This may or may not keep up in the future.
~What is your favorite genre to read?
Romance. I can read anything as long as it has a good love story. My favorite romances though or those involving motorcycle clubs.
~If you could go back in time what is one thing you would tell your teenage self?
Do not waste your time on all those other boys. You will meet the right one when you turn nineteen.
~What are your favorite hobbies?
Reading, sewing and playing video games
~Do you believe in love at first sight?
In books yes, because it’s fiction. Not in real life. That’s just stupid because you really have no idea who you just fell in love with.
~Name one of your pet peeves?
Do not call anyone the c word in front of me. You know the one that rhymes with punt. I will probably deck you.
~If you were a genie, what wish would you absolutely not grant?
To make someone fall in love with the wisher. That would lead to a whole lot of problems.
~Favorite drink? Alcoholic or not.
Sweet Tea (I’m not a drinker)
~What’s the one thing you can’t live without?
~If you could date a celebrity who would it be and why?
Taron Egerton. The guy from Kingsmen. He’s freaking sexy as hell and sweet as can be (I’ve read several of his interviews)
~What is one thing no one knows about you?
If I told you, then someone would know, wouldn’t they?
~Favorite sport/sports team?
Philadelphia Eagles. I don’t really like sports, but football is fun and dramatic. Gotta love it.
~Do you have any hidden talents?
I can pretty much tell you what actor was in what movie. I know pretty much everyone. I even have friends who text or call me to ask me who was in what. My husband even asks me constantly. I love movies, what can I say?

Teaser from Amanda’s Upcoming Book
Release date TBA
He broke my heart.
He used me.
He tore me apart, put me back together and tore me up again.
He only thought he would get away with it…
Tate Collins has no idea what hell I’m about to put him through.
I’m sure I’m not alone with the fact I’ve been hurt…and we all know I’m not alone with wanting revenge.
I won’t rest until my ex is tied to a chair and at my mercy. I won’t physically hurt him…but his mental state won’t fair the same. It’s only fair since my mental state is questionable.
