Andi Aames

Average Rating:

Andi Aames is a long-time performer who first walked onstage to sing at the age of four and got hooked on the applause. Now she lives and writes in a pretty community in rural Ontario, Canada where the applause comes in the form of reviews, emails, and comments from her readers and the cows outnumber the people by fifty to one.

Q: How did you become interested in writing?

A: I have always loved the written word as an avid reader and then as a writer because my favourite authors couldn't keep up with my appetite for more. I got hooked on writing very quickly once I started.

Q: What is the best part of being a writer?

A: The best part about writing is that I get to right some of the wrongs the world sees every day and give my characters a happy ending by the time they make their way through the story. Real life isn't always so obliging.

Q: What is a normal writing day like?

A: I work a nine-to-five job, so normal is trying to carve out writing time in the evenings and on weekends. Sometimes family obligations get the best of me, but I can usually get some writing done in the evening and then do a read through and any edits the next morning.

Q: How does your family feel about your writing?

A: I think they are proud but sometimes baffled when I mutter to myself or talk about people who don't exist. Depends on the day.

Q: What is the strangest thing someone said to you after finding out that you were a writer?

A: At a writer's conference, I once was asked if I would be willing to give free massages because I had written a sample piece featuring a massage therapist. I was able to say honestly that I'm not a massage therapist myself and escape to the buffet table.
