Interview: Amanda Stephan

Amanda Stephan describes herself as “just a normal, everyday country girl.” She finds writing to be an opportunity to share God’s love for others in a fun and entertaining way. Not quite a recluse, she’s rather camera shy (like a lot of authors), doesn’t like to be in the spotlight, and absolutely LOVES to have her feet tickled. But she would say her most interesting accomplishment is that she laughs like Scooby Doo.

Enjoy this interview.

Tell us about your upcoming book.

My new release, Lonely Hearts, is a sweet Christian romance about one lonely mother, two matchmaking kids, and three eligible bachelors. Oh yes. And apple pie!

When Becky Callis moves to a new town, she had no intention of becoming romantically involved. Her children, on the other hand, think she’s been lonely far too long, and decide to take matters into their own hands.

Choices range from handsome cowboy, Scott Boone; local preacher, Jack; or rough around the edges rancher, Pearce Morgan. It doesn’t take long before her children find that…True love is harder than it looks!

Have you published anything previously?

Lonely Hearts is my second romance novel. My first, The Price of Trust, was released in May 2010. You can get a sneak peek here.

What made you decide to write romance?

I am an incurable romantic. There’s just something about reading how a couple come together that makes me sigh and dream. But, with that said, I’m not one for edgy or graphic books. I’m super picky about what I read, so if it’s inappropriate for my children to read, it’s not in my house.

Do you keep a writing schedule?

I suppose I’m rather eclectic in that matter. I find my best writing comes when everyone is in bed and I can let my imagination run free.

What do you do when you’re not writing?

I’m either homeschooling our children, sewing, or reading a book to review.

Name your three favorite books.

My three favorite books would have to be Jane Eyre, Pride and Prejudice, and 101 Dalmatians. When I was growing up, I absolutely tore my paperback copy of 101 Dalmatians up.

What’s next for you?

My Christian romance/suspense series was just picked up by TreasureLine Publishing, so we’re super excited about that! At this point, it’s a three book series, but a fourth is possible.

Where can we learn more about you?

You can usually find me lurking in several online places: Facebook fan page, Facebook author page, Twitter, my website, or my blog.
