Author spotlight: Amy Andrews

25 September 2021

In the lead-up to ARR2021 in December we will be spotlighting the authors who will be signing. In the spotlight today we have Amy Andrews.

Who was the first romance author to catch your interest?

When I was first reading category romance (aka sneaking off with my mother’s…) I was reading Carole Mortimer, Ann Mather, Penny Jordan, Emma Darcy etc. The first author who made an impact as far as my writing went was Jennifer Crusie.

What do you write?

Contemporary romance, mostly in the category romance area and rom-com single title books.

Which usually comes to you first—characters or plot (or something else)?

It varies from book to book. Sometimes I’ll have a character arrive fully formed in my head with their story to tell, others times I’ll have a scene appear in my head that needs to be explored, other times an editor asks for something specific and I run with that.

Choose one of your books to turn into a movie—who would you cast in the lead roles?

I always thought Holding Out for a Hero would make an excellent movie. And the lead roles—Joe Manganiello for Jake and Rachel Griffiths for Ella. Also Pauley Perrette, the chick who plays Abby in the original NICS, as Rosie and Rob Lowe playing her super-straight love interest Simon.

Tell us about your latest release in 100 words or less:

Playing it Safe is book 7 in my Sydney Smoke rugby series and my first ever—after 80+ books—MM romance. I knew by book 2 that Donovan was gay, but it’s never been revealed in the series before and I’m super excited as well as super nervous to see how it is received. I really wanted a Patrick and David style relationship—sweet and heart-warming—for Donovan and Beck and I hope readers love their HEA as much as I did writing it.

What else are you working on in 2021?

I have a Christmas book coming out for Tule in November—You Had Me at Chocolate—which I’m just finishing up now, and I’m also working on two books for 2022: book 5 in the Credence series and the next rugby book!
