Amor Libris: Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
R. L. Andrew: I’m a chronically ill Australian writer. My illness is the reason I began taking writing seriously. I love writing, reading, and watching horror and science fiction. I also write movie reviews for a New York Website. I get the opportunity to watch some movies before they are released to the public. I aim to make my own horror movie somehow in the next few years.
Amor Libris: What is your favorite motivational phrase, and why?
R. L. Andrew: This too shall pass.
No matter what happens in your life, the struggles you face and the things you worry about will pass in their own time. There is no point worrying about them and getting caught up in the negativity around it. Let it take its course.
Amor Libris: What do you like to do when you are not writing?
R. L. Andrew: Watching horror movies, reading, and cooking when I’m able. I love baking and working in my herb garden.
Amor Libris: What books and/or authors have influenced you the most?
R. L. Andrew: In the past, I only read a limited array of writers, usually male and thrillers. A few years ago, I realised I was doing myself a great disservice so I widened my scope and opened my mind. There are so many books that have inspired me I can’t narrow it down. I am loving Lisa Gardener’s books. She has an amazing knack at writing in the first person. I enjoy Chelsea Cain’s books. She writes flawed characters that do unexpected things, and I can’t put her books down. Oh and Mary Janice Davidson, Karen Rose, and Danielle Trussoni.
