About the Author
TJ Amberson hails from the Pacific Northwest, where she lives with her husband and nutty cocker spaniel. Her most recent novels include The Kingdom Of Nereth, Fusion, and Love at Lakewood Med. When she’s not writing, TJ can probably be found enjoying a hot chocolate, pretending to know how to garden, playing the piano, or surfing the Internet for cheap plane tickets.
1. Who or what inspired you to become an author?
Writing is just something that I have done for as long as I can remember. From the time I was in very early elementary school, I was penciling 50+-page-long stories on notebook paper and handing them in to my teachers to read. I will forever be grateful to those teachers for supporting me and encouraging me to continue writing.
2. What did you want to be when you grew up? Did becoming an author ever cross your mind?
I thought about doing so many things! Movie editor, astronomer, professor, volleyball and basketball coach, pediatrician…and for the most time, I wanted to work at Mission Control for NASA. Throughout, I never really thought about “becoming” an author – writing was simply something I always did on the side, in addition to whatever other interests I was pursuing.
3. What top 5 book(s) do you currently have sitting on your TBR pile?
1)A Wrinkle In Time by Madeleine L’Engle (haven’t read it since elementary school!)
2)Lethal Licorice by Amanda Flower
3)Assaulted Caramel by Amanda Flower
4)The Lady and the Gent by Rebecca Connolly
5)Love Remains by Sarah Eden
4. What inspired the idea for Love at Lakewood Med?
The concept for the story was very loosely inspired by my own journey as a medical student and emergency medicine resident.
5. What do you want readers to take away from reading Love at Lakewood Med?
First and foremost, I hope that readers love the love story! I hope that readers say they enjoyed getting lost in a fun romance novel that made them laugh, cry a little, and swoon! I hope that readers also come away feeling as though they were right there in the emergency department, watching the chaos, getting surprised by the unexpected, and feeling the complexity of situations that often arise there.
6. What is your current WIP? What can you tell us about it?
Yes! I am working on the sequel to my YA historical fantasy, THE KINGDOM OF NERETH. I am having so much fun getting back to the fictional, medieval land of Nereth, and I’m extremely excited for my readers to see what adventures await the band of characters.
