A New Girl (One of Them)

My first post as a regular at MM…I’m thrilled to be here. 🙂

I’m a big fan of lists because they make me feel organized even when I’m not and also work for my short attention span. So today I present you with:

The Top 5 Things You Never Knew You Wanted to Know About Amy Knupp:

Books by me—US editions on top and foreign copies on the bottom.

Books by me—US editions on top and foreign copies on the bottom.

  1. I write contemporary romance, including 12 books for Harlequin Superromance and 3 indie published shorter stories. Instead of telling you about my stories, I’ll do one better and offer you the opportunity to try one for yourself if you’re interested. If you want one of my print books for free, email me at alknupp@gmail.com with the subject line PRINT BOOK and tell me which one you want and what your address is. I’ll send one book to up to 20 people, first come first served, US residents only this time (my apologies to the international readers). You can choose from Unexpected Complication, The Boy Next Door, Doctor in Her House, The Secret She Kept, Playing with Fire, A Little Consequence, Fully Involved, Burning Ambition, Island Haven, After the Storm, A Time for Us, and Because of the List. Or you can choose a reprint of Burning Ambition in a 2-for-1 volume with Abby Gaines’ That New York Minute. (Again, email me now if you want one!)
  2. I was gluten-free before gluten-free was cool. And dairy-free. And soy- and egg-free. And nightshade-free. And sugar-free. And nut- and seed- and legume-free. My friends lovingly call me a food freak. Or sometimes just “special.” (It’s a medical diet and, yes, I do eat. A lot. Proteins, veggies, and fruits, and the random very special high-maintenance homemade dessert that meets all the requirements.):shock: And yes, some days I would kill for an extra-large DQ Blizzard!
  3. I share my small, stuck-in-the-60s home with a husband who, most days, helps me hold on to my sanity, two teenaged boys who rob me of my sanity, and two turtles and five cats. Which is proof I never had sanity to begin with.
  4.  My “day job” is as a grammar geek/copyeditor at Blue Otter Editing. Best. Job. Ever. Not only do I get paid to read some really fabulous stories, but I get to indulge my slight extreme OCD-ness by making sure all the beautiful words are spelled and used correctly and the commas are in the right places.
  5. I graduated from the University of Kansas, so I’m quiet during football season and allegedly not quiet during basketball season cheering for the Jayhawks. Today, however, I’m in mourning, following a painful season-ending loss. Ah, well, approximately 92 more days till next basketball season.

And that’s pretty much me in a nutshell. So to speak. One last reminder to email me now if you’d like a free book! :smile:

    Hi, Amy,

    Welcome! I love this post. What fun facts about yourself 🙂 And a terrific giveaway, too!

  2. Edie Ramer says:

    Amy, welcome to MM! That’s a great giveaway!

    I’m glad you’re taking such good care of yourself. I recently concluded that I’m gluten intolerant, and I’m cutting way down on gluten. I’d have more trouble cutting down too much on sugar. I’m trying not to eat anything that comes in a box. I heard one food professional say that when you get food from a box, the box is usually more healthy than the product in it.

    • Amy Knupp says:

      Thanks for the welcome, Edie! I totally believe that about the box being healthier. Sugar is so hard and it’s the one I screw up with most often. It’s evil! But soooo delish. 😉

  3. I didn’t know some of those facts! 🙂 Welcome to MM, Amy, and what a great giveaway. I’m so glad you’ve joined us, and I love your first post. I’m only allergic to alcohol and anything with sulphur in it. I really can’t imagine living life having to avoid so many different foods.

  4. Amy Knupp says:

    Thanks for the welcome, Michelle! I remember your allergy to alcohol now. Because of all the sugar in it, I try not to have much these days. I’m trying to learn to focus more on the value of what I do put into my mouth instead of all the things I can’t have. (Trying. LOL)

  5. Welcome, Amy! I would like to eat less gluten, but bread and pasta are some of my weaknesses. LOL.
    Jennifer Estep`s last blog was …How do you read …

  6. Amy Knupp says:

    Thanks, Jennifer! Bread and pasta were tough for me too. It’s taken me a lot of years to get them out for good.

  7. Hi Amy! It’s so great to have you here and I enjoyed learning more about you. I wish like crazy I could get rid of my sweet tooth! But alas, it doesn’t want to leave. I’ve got a hubby and two boys, too, so I hear you on the sanity. 😉
    Robin Bielman`s last blog was …Can You Hear That? It’s Kissing!

  8. Amy Knupp says:

    Hi Robin, that very sweet tooth still gives me grief A LOT. Sugar is from the devil…but it’s sooo tasty. lol And then the males in the house drive you to need SOMETHING… 🙂

  9. Dale Mayer says:

    Welcome Amy! You’re diet isn’t all that different from mine – but I do sneak cheese as often as I can get away with it.

    Welcome to Magical Musings!
    Dale Mayer`s last blog was …Scars – is now available!

    • Amy Knupp says:

      Dale…cheese. God, I love cheese. I used to “cheat” with it frequently. I miss it probably the most of ANYTHING. (Dairy desserts almost as much, but there are some “substitutes” made with coconut milk that are at least close. Nothing compares to cheese, glorious cheese!)
