What, Where, When, Why, How with Amber Leigh Williams

Welcome today to author Amber Leigh Williams!

What's the longest trip you've ever been on?

Three whole weeks at my grandmother’s house in Florida. It was late spring and I was poolside with a book and completely lazy the entire time. I don’t think I ever took off my bikini. Two weeks of nothing but sunshine and margaritas… Who the heck needs diamonds and chiffon? That's luxury!

When would you kill your own food?

Probably only under the most dire circumstances…and only if the DH wasn’t present. He has no problem bringing home the bacon…in the most literal sense. He's really man-y that way. But me? I draw the line after fishing. I’ll hook it, but I won’t clean it. I’m squeamish…

Where's the best place you've been this year?

Physically or in my head? Physically—the family lakehouse. It was still cold but sitting out on the glassed sun porch watching the sun glisten off the water and just listening to the quiet echo was so sublime! In my head—a candlelit penthouse suite with a very seductive incubus ;)

Why do doctors leave the room when you change?

Erm…because I’d tell them to leave if they didn’t? I have a huge problem undressing in front of anyone but the DH...and it took me so long to get used to that! Kinda ironic considering part of my job is writing full-flesh love scenes.

How much time should be spent making yourself look better each day?

Personally, as little as humanly possible. Most days it’s just me and my computer. Getting dolled up occasionally is nice, but I’m so in my head on the average day that it’s just best to get right to work and focus on those people in my head who’re so much more appealing then me anyway :-)

Good interview! *G* The "in my head" adventures do sometimes sound more appealing than real life ones.
