Interview with Amelia Wilde, author of Shameless Kiss
04 May 2017
What can you tell us about your new release, Shameless Kiss?
Shameless Kiss is is another sexy romp through New York City by yours truly. I’m a big fan of the heroine in this book–she’s so determined to do everything for herself, which makes sparks fly when she meets our hero, who doesn’t take no for an answer!
What or who inspired you to become an author?
I’ve just always loved writing and telling stories. I never knew that it would be this fun to be an author, though–I always thought you had to have a publishing contract!
Which books would we be surprised to find on your shelves?
I love thrillers.
You’re hosting a literary dinner party. Which three writers are invited?
Lev Grossman, Audrey Niffenegger, and Christopher Moore
Where is your happy place? Why does it bring you joy?
I’m a big sucker for Disney World. It’s just so…magical! There’s also a sunny spot at my local library that just makes me feel so peaceful. I solve a lot of writing problems there!
What advice would yu give your teenage self?
Start writing NOW! Don’t wait! And don’t listen to anyone who tells you that you can’t make a living doing what you love.
What scene in Shameless Kiss was your favorite to write?
I don’t want to give away any details, but there’s a scene near the middle where things really heat up. That was the most fun!
Do you have a motto, quote or philosophy you live by?
I always try to remember that life is short, so I try to enjoy every moment that I can.
