Elizabeth Michels interviews Amy Sandas

Elizabeth: What’s your favorite line from your new release, LORD OF LIES?
Amy: “He knew before he spoke, however, that a sensible lecture would only end in a roll of her fascinating eyes or a snort of derision before she went along doing exactly what she wanted to do anyway.”

Elizabeth: When did you know you wanted to be a writer?
Amy: I’ve loved writing since I was a pre-teen, but it wasn’t until college that I knew I wanted to make a go of it as a career. It took many years after that to actually commit to a discipline that would make it happen.

Elizabeth: Do you have any book release day traditions?
Amy: You mean aside from biting my nails and scanning the internet for reviews every five minutes? As someone who loves food and honestly gets sick of cooking every night, getting dressed up and going out to a nice restaurant is my favorite way to celebrate a new release.

Amy Sandas interviews Elizabeth Michels

Amy: When did you realize you wanted to write romance novels?
Elizabeth: I never realized I could write until I was grown. I know many authors began their first novel at age 10, but that wasn’t me. I was actually in my early thirties and I’d just had a baby. I’d been reading romance for a few years at that point. One day while cleaning out our closets my husband stumbled across my stash of romance novels. He turned around to look at me with a look of shock on his face. “You’ve read all of these? Do you realize how much market research you’ve done on this subject?”

Leave it to him to look at reading books in business terms. I’m pretty sure I rolled my eyes. “Market research? Really?”

Then he said, “No, I’m serious. You should try to write a book.”

I could have ignored his suggestion and continued spring cleaning the house. But I’d just closed my interior design business to be a stay-at-home-mom for our son and I was looking for something to work on in my free time. So during naptime for my baby the following afternoon I sat down at the kitchen table and started to write.

That first manuscript is still well hidden beneath my bed even today, but I learned from it. What’s more, I found I had a passion for story telling that I never knew existed. I’m so thankful that my husband wanted to clean out the house that day. It changed my life. And my husband is still my biggest cheerleader on this journey. …Don’t tell him I called him a cheerleader, alright? It’ll be our secret.

Amy: If you could go anywhere in the world for a vacation, where would you go?
Elizabeth: London, of course! My house is in the country so I enjoy going to cities on vacation for a change of pace. And what better city is there in the world than London, England? I love London, but I haven’t been able to go in years since I have a little one at home. It seemed like a long flight for a wiggly little boy to sit through, but now that he’s getting older I’m hoping I can take a family vacation there in the coming years. Until then I’ll just have to sip tea at home and dream.

Amy: If you had only one book to read for the rest of your life, what book would it be?
Elizabeth: Only one book?! Forever?! Man, ask me a tougher question, why don’t you, Amy. Geez! I would have to go with the book that will always hold a special place in my heart: the one that hooked me on reading when I was a teenager. There was a long list of acceptable books for summer reading that year. I wasn’t a big reader at the time, so I sighed and looked down the list settling on a title that turned out to be AMAZING! After I read it, I wanted more and began devouring book after book for the first time in my life. But that first one is still my favorite book of all time. The book that changed my life: REBECCA by Daphne Du Maurier.

“You do strange things to me, Dell Turner. Tell me I am not alone in what I feel.”
His voice was low and rough. His eyes burned. “You are not alone,” he said.

Portia Chadwick longs for a life of adventure. When a dangerous moneylender kidnaps her sister, she dares to seek help from a man known only as Nightshade. Soon she finds herself charging headfirst into his world of intrigue and danger—and unexpected passion.

Dell Turner grew up in London’s back alleys and gin lanes. Vowing to escape his low beginnings, he hires himself out to society’s elite. When he accepts a job from a beautiful debutante, he doesn’t anticipate her relentless determination to join his mad occupation…or her unnerving ability to inspire emotions he thought long buried. She’s as dangerous to him as his world is to her, and yet Dell can’t bring himself to turn Portia away—even if it means risking her life.
