Today we are spotlighting the amazing women being one of my all time Favourite books - Please take a moment to appreciate the amazing women that is Fisher Amelie.
Fisher Amelie is the author of The Leaving Series, Callum & Harper and Thomas & January. She began her writing career as a copywriter for an internet marketing company wherein one of their client's said, 'Hey! You're funny. You should write books'. Which in turn she said, 'Hey, get out of here! This is the lady's restroom.' While washing her hands and the embarrassment from her face, she thought they may have had a valid point. So, she took the thousands of hours of writing stories growing up, tucked them into her pocket and began writing and writing and writing.
Whirlwind books This Or That
Ice cream or Cake? Cake. Hands down. Strawberry cake with cream cheese frosting. Oh my word. I’m on a hypoglycemic diet. Where are my keys? I need to get, uh, celery at the store. Yeah, celery. That’s it.
Whips or Handcuffs? Yogurt whips are pretty amazing. The strawberry ones are the best. Are handcuffs those chocolate novelty things that cover the wrist and you can eat off them? Because if they are, I’m a handcuff girl.
Top or Bottom? I prefer the tops of muffins personally. I mean, don’t get me wrong, the occasional baker can perfect the bottoms but that is rare and, frankly, almost impossible. Bottoms are like Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans. Not worth the risk.
Snow or Sea? You’ve caught me in a rare moment because usually I’m a sea girl but my a/c broke in my car yesterday and I live in Texas and it’s August so right now I’m definitely a snow kinda’ gal.
Lean or Muscled men? I like an in-between. I don’t like them to be too muscled because I automatically expect an Austrian accent, and to be blunt, that’s not on my high end of yowza accents. Sorry, Austria, Arnold Schwarzenegger ruined you for me.
High Heels or Flats? Uh, flats. I’m 5’ 8” and whenever I wear heels I look like a giant which is attractive to someone, say, who answers to the name of Goliath but since he was an asshole, I like to steer away from heels. Truth time: I can’t balance in heels.
Front Or Back Door? My front door is rather heavy, I must admit. It’s solid wood and sits on five hinges. My back door is aluminium with a solid glass center. While the former is heavier, the latter is uglier. I choose beauty. I choose the front door.
Short and Fat or Long and Thin? A quandary for Italian restaurants everywhere, I tell you. On the one hand, long and thin breadsticks are sightlier but I’m not a fan of the crunch. Short and fat breadsticks are usually softer and covered in garlic butter. When I present the argument like this, it’s a no brainer. Short and fat breadsticks are the way to go.
Lights on or Off? When the lights are on, I get a bit distracted by all there is to see and most of my books are darker in subject matter so I like my atmosphere to reflect as much. When I write, I prefer the dark. When I read, I prefer the light, though. I’m torn. Half my free time I spend writing and the other half I’m reading. I’m going with aesthetics on this one. When you compare the sun and moon in cartoon form, the moon is always cuter, in my opinion. Dark.
Batman or Superman? Batman. Superman is a little too, “Oh, garsh” for my taste.
Boxers or Briefs? I like a man who can hold his own in the ring but it seems boxers tend to lose a bit of the ol’ brain cells after their tenth fight or so. Briefs are nothing more than a bantering fight on paper. I prefer to fight with my words rather than my fists so I’m going to say I’m a briefs girl. It’s not that I don’t like a good fistfight; it’s just…well…I have chicken arms, damn it.
Tattoo’s or Piercings?
As you can see, Tattoo is pretty much a bad ass.
Forks or Spoons? Ah, the age old question. I choose the spork. There is nothing more rewarding than drinking a liquid and stabbing yourself in the lip with the sharp prongs nor trying to spear your salad leaf only to break the utensil on the container. The spork.
Drummers or Guitars? Uh, drummers. I’ll tell you why. Say you’re a famous musician and you get into an awful Corvette accident in the UK, drag racing with some douche. Now, say, God forbid, you lose your left arm in that accident. How in the hell can you recover from that as a guitarist? I’ll tell you how. You can’t! But if you’re a drummer? You can concoct a fantastic new kit, practice your ass off and from then on be known simply as, “Thunder God.”
Sausage or eggs? I’m allergic to eggs. I’m not crapping you. I can’t have quiche, bacon, egg and cheese biscuits, crepes, frittatas, or Mexican breakfast tacos. I can’t even have egg nog! Screw you, eggs! You delicious, freaking amazing things, you! That’s okay, I’ve got this Jimmy Dean. And it’s salty and delicious, you bastard.
Bath or Shower? A bath. A bath shower, actually. A bath shower is when all your girlfriends come over on a Saturday morning when they have much better things to do. You serve lemonade and buttermints and they bring you gifts for your entire bath needs. Preferably from Bath & Body Work and Black Cherry Merlot. I will accept gift cards.
Outside or Inside? This is where I would lie and say something like, “Oh, definitely outside. I like to paddleboard, skateboard, bike, hike…blah, blah, blah.” But I’m in a truthful mood. I’m an inside girl. I like the a/c. I like reading in my chair with something made of chocolate. I like the inside and I’m finally not afraid to say it.
Spanx or Spanking? I’m a Spanish Minx or, if you will, a Spanx. I am sassy and saucy and full of moxy. I’m a Spanx.
Slow or Fast? This is an age-old lesson. The rabbit was arrogant and overly confident. He dallied around with all the ladies, which we all know gets you only trouble and he even took a nap! The turtle was slow and steady…and he won the race. Silly rabbit, races are for turtles.
