Please tell us in one sentence only, why we should read your book.  
It's about second chances and love. 

What was your favorite scene to write? 
 My favorite scene to write, probably the ending. I really loved giving them that ending. I won't describe it too much because I don't want to give it away, but that ending made me cry. When I cried writing it, I knew it was right.

What is your dream cast for your book?  
This is very easy to answer because I cast my characters on my Pinterest boards and write with that inspiration.

George Atavik would be played by Adam Beach.
Samantha Doxtator would be played by Tamara Podemski
Samantha's son Adam would be played by Boo Boo Stewart ...but I think Boo Boo is too old now. At the time I started writing and plotting he wasn't. Kids grow way too fast, but that's how I pictured Adam.

You can see the boards here:

What are you working on now? 
 I just turned in Book #6 to my editor and I'm about to dive right in to a group project with Medical authors Amalie Berlin, Tina Beckett and Lucy Ryder. It should be lots of fun according to the crazy conversations we've had. LOL

Tell us a little bit about your book...

If you've read Safe in His Hands you'll be familiar with George the air paramedic. Dare She Date Again? Is George's book. It's about a widow Samantha who, after ten years, finds a second chance at love with George. It's set in Canada again, in a place I know very well. I loved being able to write George and Samantha's story. It was hard to leave them behind when the book was done.


To love again…? 

Single mom and paramedic Samantha Doxtator has been living with a broken heart after losing her husband years ago. Now she's finally back on track and following her dream to become an air ambulance pilot…after training one last student—George Atavik!

Since nearly losing his life in a plane crash, George will not waste the second chance he's been given, and he won't deny the sparks flying between him and his new mentor. Does Samantha dare risk her own carefully guarded heart for another opportunity at happiness?

  3. Loved this post, thanks for sharing Amy!

  4. I love the message of this book, that second chances are possible. Everyone deserves another chance. Best ofluck with the book, Amy.

  5. I had a friend who lost her young husband, so this strikes a chord with me. It took her a very long time to find the courage or the desire to date.

    1. Same with me, Cleemckenzie! My BF lost her husband suddenly and it took her some time to heal. She's found someone fantastic who loves her and her boys and they're getting married this December. I'm so happy for her.

  6. Once or twice, my writing made me cry too. That's when you know it's strong.

  7. WOW. This sounds like such a gripping read. Man oh man! I know a man who lost his wife. It was many, many years before he could date again. He raised their three daughters alone.

    1. Thanks, Robyn! I hope it touches people. :)

  8. Amy has the demeanour of a very lovely person. I wish her much more success with her new book and her writing career.

  9. I've cried when writing scenes in my books before.

    1. Then you must be on the right track! Thanks for visiting!
