Amy McNamara shares Lovely, Dark and Deep
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Work hard and be kind to people.
Q. What is your favorite occupation, when you’re not writing?
A. Walking around with my camera.
Q. What is your greatest achievement?
A. Probably showing up, with my heart open, for my kids and honey.
Q. What do you regret most?
A. Any time in life when I allow fear to stop me from doing something. Any and all times I fail to love people properly.
Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?
A. I loathe the expression "it is what it is" but do not use it myself. I may as well, though, because I hear it all the time. I think it's such a strange thing to say - there's a fatalistic resignation there and/or an emptiness that seems entirely unhelpful.
