Born and raised in Toronto, Ontario, Amy fled the big city to settle down with the country boy of her dreams. When she's not furiously typing away at her computer, she's a mom to three children.

Do you think someone could be a writer if they don’t feel emotions strongly?

Everyone is different and we all have different strengths. I think, we all feel emotions differently. My son and myself both have autism, we don’t always see  or understand emotions, but I think everyone feels emotions. It’s just our perceptions may be different.

Your writer voice is what makes you unique. If someone truly wants to be a writer, they need to find where there voice fits, what inspires them and practice their craft.

What was an early experience where you learned that language had power?

I think learning to read when I was four. My father spent hours with me, reading and then I read to him. Reading opened a whole new world.

As a writer, what would you choose as your mascot/avatar/spirit animal?

As I trace my roots, my Dad’s ancestors were Cree and I often dream of polar bears. I’m very drawn to polar bears. I had an Indigenous friend tell me that because I dream of them so often that I may be connected to the polar bear, so I would like to think that is my connection.

I try not to say spirit animal, as I’m still in the process of discovering my ancestry and I don’t want to appropriate something that doesn’t belong to me, like a spirit animal, but I’m very drawn to polar bears/bears and they feature often in my books. I have a healthy respect for them.

I’m also very drawn to the northern lights and the north, so I like to pay tribute to Canada’s north as much as I can. When I travel in the north, I’m at peace.

Tell us about your book…

My book is set in Yellowknife, which is part of Canada’s north. The first book I sold to Harlequin was set in Nunavut (also Canada’s north), so I felt like my 25th should be set somewhere north too.

Lev and Imogen meet at a conference, have a passionate one night stand. Lev wants more, but he’s a prince in hiding and when his country erupts into civil unrest he has to leave and go into hiding.

Imogen doesn’t know what happens, but returns back home to Yellowknife where she finds out she’s pregnant and the father is a missing prince. Lev ends up in the north and proposes to Imogen right away to protect his unborn child, but of course, Imogen says no…at first that is.

It’s also a medical romance. Lev and Imogen are both doctors, but the true focus of medical romance is the romance.

Baby Bombshell for the Doctor Prince

His secret: he’s a prince!

Her secret: she’s carrying his baby!

After ER doc Lev Vanin shared one unforgettable night with gorgeous Dr. Imogen Hayes, he never expected to see her again. He couldn’t tell Imogen he’s actually a prince! But when a revolution at home forces Lev into hiding, he ends up working in Imogen’s hospital and his secret is out! Plus, Lev’s life is about to be turned upside down once again…because Imogen’s pregnant with his heir!

  3. I love seeing doctors in romance books.

  4. It sounds like this story covers a lot of the most popular romance story lines... medical... check!... an "undercover" prince... check!... one night stand resulting in a surprise pregnancy... check! But most of all, I'm sure it has a happy ending. :) Best wishes with the new book. Twenty-fifth! Wow... very impressive. :)
