Interview with Amanda Bennett

Amanda Bennett

What inspired you to write Time to Let Go? Time to Let Go was inspired by an abusive relationship that I was in when I was younger. More than anything I figured it would be extremely cathartic to base a book loosely around events that had taken place earlier on in my life.

Tell us a little about Beautifully Broken: Beautifully Broken is about a girl who has basically lost everything. She feels as though the events that have taken place throughout her life have left her beyond repair (broken). She realizes that she is in love with her best friend and through their trials and tribulations you get a glimpse into how they go about trying to repair the brokenness that is their relationship.

Is there a genre you would like to try? I would love to write a paranormal book for sure.

Could you live without coffee? That’s a big NEGATIVE:)

Tell us one of your favorite jokes: When a cow laughs, does milk come out its nose? It’s one of my six year old’s favorites and it makes me laugh every time he tells it.

What’s your favorite thing about the writing process? I love that I get to get so wrapped up in a world that I created. It’s mine do with as I see fit.
