Amy McNamara shares Lovely, Dark and Deep
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Work hard and be kind to people.
Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?
A. Either where I am (New York City) or in Berlin, looking at art.
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.
Q. What’s your greatest flaw?
A. Worry. And subsequent crankiness.
Q. What is your favorite occupation, when you’re not writing?
A. Walking around with my camera.
