Amy was born in Portugal in 1990. As a child, she read books and comics instead of playing with dolls. Years later, in 2009, she met a wonderful writer from a distant country who showed her the path of writing. Her love of writing led her to learn advanced English in order to publish her stories. Her goal was to take the readers away from reality, and tour the worlds in her imagination.
Her drive comes from the readers who motivate her to do her best while having fun. Amy Lambo has a passion for writing M/M romance while listening to classic or Japanese pop-rock music. Reading yaoi manga, watching anime, and sports are her hobbies.

Q: How did you start writing?
A: When I was in the eighth grade, a teacher congratulated me for writing a fantasy poem. Not long after, I began to write short stories in my native language, Portuguese. But it all started when I met a great writer, Scarlet Hyacinth, who showed me how to let out these trapped worlds in my imagination. In the beginning, I was so excited that I wrote two or three chapters each day. I used to write even while in recess in high-school. But the English grammar wasn't there. So, I went on a journey to write in that language, which took me four and a half years to reach. I can say now that every minute was worth it, even if it's not perfect.
Q: Why choose M/M romance?
A: In that same year, 2009, I discovered yaoi, Japanese M/M romance in anime or manga. It became addictive, so it turned into the core of my writing.
Q: What do you do when you're not writing or reading?
A: I walk my Dalmatian dog, Kane, or ride my bicycle. And do some activities with family and friends, of course. If I don't feel like doing that, I surf the internet in search of something new to learn, inspiration for my stories, or watch videos. I also spend some time chatting with readers and writers.
Q: What are the most important things to you while writing?
A: The first is to make sure that no one will bother me. Second, my surroundings can't be a mess or I won't be able to concentrate. And I stay away from the television and the Internet. Third, my desk chair must be comfortable so I don't hurt my back after a while of writing.
Q: What is your writing day like?
A: I wake up around 6 in the morning and start writing once I'm ready. Throughout the day, I'm on and off, since there's a life beyond writing. But whenever I can, I sit at my desk and type away on the keyboard. Oftentimes, while on vacation or on weekends, I choose to stay up late writing.
