10 Questions with Amber Lynn
1. Can you tell us about yourself?
Let’s see. I’m a Midwest girl, born and raised in Iowa. I’ve been married for ten years, to my very patient husband. I love going for a ride on my motorcycle, baking, playing with my two dogs, camping, watching way too much television and reading.
2. What made you decide to go into writing?
I’ve always had stories lurking in the back of my mind. One day I just decided it was time to start writing things down.
3. Are there any people that influenced your writing style and/or started your desire to write?
I wouldn’t say there was anyone specific. I have a good friend who points out my common mistakes, but my style itself has been something I’ve adjusted and grown the more I’ve written. I’ve read so many books that I’m sure I’ve picked up things here and there.
4. What’s your favorite book that you have written and why?
I’m not sure how to answer that. I can’t pick a favorite between my dogs, and I believe the same can be said for my books. We’ll go with the most recent one for an easy answer.
5. What’s your favorite food? Curious minds want to know… 😉
Not sure I have a favorite, but I have one I won’t buy because I can’t stop eating them. That would be those pink and white frosted animal crackers. They are evil.
6. How old were you when you wrote your first book?
7. What’s your favorite book that you have ever read?
I’m going to cheat and say The Fever Series by Karen Marie Moning. I absolutely love that series and like with my own books, would have issues picking just one.
8. What book are you currently working on?
Right this second, I’m finishing up the sequel to The Nightwalker Knocks. I plan to have that finished up in early August and then will be moving on to the sequel to The Witch’s Web.
9. Have you ever experienced writer’s block? If so, how have you gotten past it?
I sometimes have minor blocks, but they aren’t very long, and I usually just start writing parts that are more readily available in my brain.
10. Do you have any tips for budding writers?
Write what feels right to you and make sure to get independent opinions on your writing. There are a lot of sites out there with great communities built in to help dish out the constructive criticism we all need.
