Q & A with Amie Louellen

Thanks for being here today, Amie. Would you please share a short bio about yourself?

I’m a wife and a mother, working toward being a full-time writer. I adore my family—husband and son—and I love spending time with them. We’re one of those dorky families who do everything together. I love to garden and to read, watch movies and read. Did I say read already?

Do you consider yourself a shy and/or introverted person? 

No, not at all. I love talking to people. In fact, I used to get into trouble when I was younger for talking to just anybody. I still do that a lot, but I don’t get in trouble with my mom anymore.

What’s the hardest part of this business for you?

I love this business. Though the hardest part might be the paperwork. The questions about the hero and heroine, what I think the cover should look like. I have a hard time making a choice and in the end, I to go overboard, pasting pictures and links to websites. I’m sure the editors and art staff think I’m crazy. 


Tell me about a time that you had to step outside your comfort zone either in your writing career or in your personal life?

I’m not a confrontational person so negotiations of contracts and the details of writing are hard for me. I’ve had to learn to say that I don’t like something or tell people I like a different change or different idea. That’s always uncomfortable for me.

What’s one tip you could share with shy and introverted people that’s helped you (whether you’re shy/introverted or not)?

Everyone gets nervous; it’s only natural. But a person who is nervous is bound to be more careful and make less mistakes than someone who’s overly confident. So use that shyness to your advantage and proceed with caution.

Would you please share a short blurb of your book and where my readers can buy it?

Suzanne Rose never intended for Brice Van Sant to drink a cup of her homemade herbal shampoo. And she certainly didn’t expect an impromptu marriage proposal from the hunky CEO.
After an incredible wedding night, Brice wakes unable to remember his bride’s name or why he proposed.

Too late they realize the bright blue shampoo is responsible. Almost like...a love potion!

Brice doesn’t believe in love. But as chief executive of the area’s largest pharmaceutical company, he needs that formula. He strong-arms Suzanne into reproducing it for him, demanding that she pretend they are happily married until it’s recovered.

As Suzanne struggles to remember the shampoo’s ingredients and forget their perfect wedding night, she finds herself falling for her husband. Can she convince Brice that love is a chance worth taking before she loses her heart to him forever?
