Interview with Amelia Wilde, Author of Flight Risk

26 Apr 2023

What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write Flight Risk?

I love writing about families, and Flight Risk is just the peak for this family!

If you had to pick theme songs for the main characters of Flight Risk, what would they be?

Jameson’s would be Running by NF and Lily’s would be Experience by Ludovico!

What’s your favorite genre to read? Is it the same as your favorite genre to write?

My fave genre is fantasy, so not the same at all!

What books are on your TBR pile right now?

Carry on by Rainbow Rowell, Lost in the Moment and Found by Seanan McGuire, and it’s time for my annual re-read of the Newsflash Trilogy by Mira Grant 😀

What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

Jameson’s nightmare scene. I love nightmare scenes…

Do you have any quirky writing habits? (lucky mugs, cats on laps, etc.)

I think probably all my writing habits are quirky, LOL. I usually play the character’s song on repeat the whole book. I like to always wear the same sweatshirt. And I LOVE to text my husband bits that I’m proud of as soon as I write them.

Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?

In incepto finis est–in the beginning is the end. It’s pointed me toward a lot of answers I already had in the last few months!

If you could choose one thing for readers to remember after reading your book, what would it be?

Snowball the bird 🙂
