Fisher Amelie – Cidney Swanson

Fisher Amelie

It’s my pleasure to bring the lovely Fisher Amelie on deck today, as part of her Bad Aces Blog Tour for her new title, CALLUM AND HARPER. 
Author Bio: Fisher Amelie resides in the South with her kick ace husband slash soul mate. She earned her first ‘mama’ patch in 2009. She also lives with her Wiem, ‘Jonah,’ and her Beta, ‘Whale.’ All these living creatures keep the belly of her life full, sometimes to the point of gluttony, but she doesn’t mind all that much because life isn’t worth living if it isn’t entertaining, right?

Fisher grew up writing. She secretly hid notebooks and notebooks of dribble in a large Tupperware storage container in her closet as a kid. She didn’t put two and two together until after college when it suddenly dawned on her:
“Hey, I like writing.” She’s a bit dense.
“No, I’m not.”
“Yes, you are. Put down that Oreo, your butt can’t take anymore.”
“You’re rude.”
“Yeah, yeah.”
Anyway, she likes to write and has finally beaten her self-esteem into submission enough to allow herself to be scrutinized under the ‘other readers’ microscope. “No! No! Not a cover slip! Las time it gave me a ra . . .” (mumbling)

I asked Fisher a few questions so that you could get to know how she likes her chocolate and other things I wanted to know myself. 
1) What are five books you’re grateful for?
 Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
Le Morte’ D’Arthur by Sir Thomas Malory
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
1984 by George Orwell
Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier
2) Briefly, how do spend an average day? I wake around seven thirty, before my son, thank goodness. I do a few copywriting tasks (day job). Son wakes. Son demands food. I comply. Son watches some ‘educational’ type show on PBS only because I just can’t seem to be okay with Yo Gabba Gabba (weirds me out). Write a few blogs for my clients. Write a few social updates for Fisher Amelie Fan Page/Twitter. Play with son, i.e. reading, watching a film, playing outside. Make lunch. Feed lunch to kid. By this time, son should have needed a bath for one of the variety of reasons he inevitably needs a bath. Bath. Nap. Back to day job, return a few e-mails. He wakes! We play some more. We clean up our messes. I start dinner. Daddy emerges from office. Son and daddy play. We all eat. Yaaay! We survived dinner. We all clean up. Another bath for son (I know). Daddy reads a few books to son. Bed time. I write. I write and write and write. I ready for bed, maybe treat myself to a shower. ;P I read. I read and read and read. I fall asleep. Repeat.
3) If a family member read your book, what would make them say, “Oh, that’s soooooo Fisher!”? I’m going to get really literal here for a second. Jules, my lead heroine in The Understorey, is a carbon copy of me….only…more polished. (LOL!) She’s got black hair, pale skin, green eyes. Also, the slightly foul mouth on Harper…that’s unfor
tunately me as well. LOL! If you asked any of my family member’s what parts of my book were ‘soooo Fisher’, they’d say the entire thing. Ba ha ha ha! My books 
are my personality. 
4) What are four (real) places you’d like to visit? Rome. Dublin. Rio de Janeiro. TokyoFor the history. For the family. ‘Cause it rocks. ‘Cause it’s interesting. 
Quickies:
Milk Chocolate or Dark Chocolate? Dark. 
Summer or Winter? Winter.
Morning Person or Night Owl? Definitely Night Owl.
Plotter or Pantser? Plotter.
Angry Birds or Daydreaming? Daydreaming.

There you have it!
