1. You mention in your blog that you’ve traced one of your ancestors’ roots to 16th century Ireland. Is this the farthest you’ve delved into your family’s origins, and what other ancestry apart from Irish have you discovered?
That's as far back as I have been able to find any information. One side of the family was diligent about family trees, the other side... not so much. From Ireland, the family migrated to England/ Wales then eventually to the United States. There's some Native American in there, or so I'm told by my mom on her side of the family (the side that didn't keep detailed records).
2. As a mom of 5 kids, when do you find the time to write and where do you usually write?
Time? What's that? I wish I could say I have a set schedule to write (I try and fail, then get mad at myself, and then try again), but it's hit or miss depending on the day. I can't seem to get any writing done when the kids are home so any and all writing is done when they are in school. I write at home. I find cafes too noisy. I have an office in the attic which is currently under renovation so I set up where I can in the meantime (currently that's on my bed, not the most productive spot for writing).
3. If you could shapeshift into an animal, which one would it be?
4. What are you reading when you’re not writing?
I love books in the fantasy/ paranormal genre, but I also enjoy historical fiction and self-help books like Embodied Grace by Jennifer Lonnberg.
5. How do you sort the titles in your library?
With the office in complete disarray, they are all stored away in boxes until the built-in bookcase is complete. Usually I sort by genre - one shelf each.
6. If you could pick a destination in the universe where you could spend the rest of your days blissfully, which one would it be? Have you ever been there?
I dream of traveling to Ireland but I think my husband is afraid I won't leave. I have never been there though. If I had to pick a place I've been to... Lake Tahoe! It's pristine, beautiful, and serene. I could sit outside writing all day.
7. Authors are all about painting sceneries and setting up the mood through the power of words. If you had to limit yourself to a single word in the English language to describe yourself, which one would it be?
8. What was your most fundamental inspiration behind Rekindled Prophecy?
The idea behind the book stuck in my head years ago (I may have been a teenager at the time), but the setting was all based on personal experiences such as my wedding at a quaint Irish B&B in rural Virginia. The inspiration came from my love for angels. I feel it's an underrepresented trope in fantasy/paranormal fiction. As my own life has been quite frankly saved by guardian angels over the years, I became fascinated with the topic. Guardian angels come in all forms - sometimes it's the person behind you in the grocery store who compliments your hair or shoes when you're having a crappy day and your day seems to turn around; sometimes it's the friend who knows when to just hug you and let you cry it out; sometimes it's a stranger directing you to the safest direction when you're lost in the middle of bad neighborhood of DC at 3AM and can't seem to find a cab (this was before Uber or cell phones), etc. Guardian angels are everywhere.
9. How do you take your coffee? If you don’t drink coffee, what’s your beverage of choice?
Can't live without my coffee. Splash of vanilla creamer.
Hi, I'm Amy and I'm addicted to caffeine, board games, mythology tales and my Korg keyboards. Oh, yeah, and I occasionally happen to write stories.
