AUSSIE MONTH with Amy Andrews
Describe yourself in one word:
Tell us about Numbered:
Numbered should be hitting shelves at the end of January. It’s a book I co-authored with my sister – Ros Baxter – and which we’re very excited about. It’s a Beaches meets the Bucket List kind of book – laughter, tears and true love in all is many splendored forms.
What inspired this novel?
It started with Ros asking the question – what would you do differently if your days were numbered? And we ran with it J
What are you reading right now?
I’m on a bit of a writing break at the moment so have been glomming on my TBR pile. Just finished Rob Lowe’s second book – Love Life (not a romance J)
Number one thing to do on your bucket list?
Stay in a villa in Tuscany for a couple of months.
Best thing about being an Aussie?
How very lucky we are to live in a stable democracy.
What you want readers to know about the romance genre?
What have you got in store for your readers in 2016?
I’ll have a few more Brazen’s out for those who like a lot of steam and the second book in the Joy Valentine Mysteries will also be out!
What were your big achievements of 2015?
I had eleven!!! book releases – it was a craaaazy year!
Amy Andrews and Ros Baxter
What would you do differently if your days were…
Live every day like it was your last.
Mathematician and many-time Loser in Love Poppy Devine believes in being prepared. So when she discovers she has breast cancer, all she has to do is dust off the carefully numbered bucket list she prepared years before with her best friend Julia.
There are only two problems: Quentin, a gorgeous younger man with rock-star ambitions, wasn’t on her list. And take-a-risk Julia, has suddenly come over all disapproving.
Together with Poppy’s hippy mother Scarlet, the three form an unlikely alliance to help Poppy realise her goals. Sky diving, swimming with sharks, cooking classes in Tuscany, visiting an orphanage in India are all part of the journey. Along the way, Poppy is forced to confront her best friend’s grief, her fraught relationship with her mother, and the fact that she really might be using her last available time on earth to make the most imperfect match of her life.
But Poppy comes to learn that when your days are numbered there’s no such thing as perfect and love really is all you need.
