Hey guys!! I hope you guys are enjoying your Saturday and I want to take the time to wish you guys a Happy Easter!!
I am lucky enough today to welcome back author Ami Blackwelder to the Gal. She will be starting her Zombie Housewives Blog Tour in a few days and decided to make another pre-tour stop here for interview #2.
You can see my reviews for Zombie Housewives 1: Zombie Housewives and Zombie Housewives 2: Zombie Models here.
Welcome back, Ami. I hope you are doing well and I wish you luck on this blog tour. Why don't you tell us a little bit about yourself.
I'm a blogger, love Bonobos, books, and bouncing about countries.
Tell us 5 random facts very few people know about you.
Lived from 25-35 mostly in the East. Have been to Spain, love Primatology and will study it in a year, would love to teach Bonobos and write, big on science and nature, am making an indie film called The Shifters (check it out here).
What is the first book you remember reading?
Gosh, Beatrix Potter books ;) She saved the Lake District of England BTW.
What kind of things do you do when you're not writing?
Now I'm in Chang Mai and will be traveling to Cambodia. I love learning culture and exploring the world for myself.
Who are you outside of writing?
Teacher, traveler, naturalist, and spiritualist ;)
If you could be any character in any book, who would you be and why?
Oh gosh, Harry Potter, that might be fun. I'd say Tris in Divergent, but I don't want to die at seventeen, lol.
Thank you, again, for coming by, Ami. And guys - she will be back ONE MORE TIME in a few weeks as she sets off to start her THIRD blog tour. Wow!! This girl is BUSY!! :)
