Monday Musings: 10 Things You Might Not Know About Amie Louellen

Since Amie has been away all weekend at a writer's conference, I went ahead and scheduled this post for her. (Don't tell her, but I think it slipped her mind. Oops.) Playing off of last week's Monday Musings, here's Amie's 10 Things...

10 Things You Might Not Know About Amie (and Sarah)

Amie: I love cookbooks and recipes. I even have recipes I collected in high school.

Sarah: You can have mine; I’m not a fan of cooking.

Amie: I am a total ‘cat person’.

Sarah: Dogs rule! LOL I was a cat person for years, but my son is very allergic so we now have non-shedding dogs.

Amie: Every room in my house is painted a different color.

Sarah: Every room in my house is a different shade from the same color chip – those paint cards found in home improvement stores? Well, until I went a little nuts a few weekends ago and painted the living room ‘deepest aqua’.

Amie: I love shopping at thrift stores and second hand shops.

Sarah: I hate shopping, thrift or otherwise.

Amie: I don’t own a pair of blue jeans.

Sarah: We are the ‘odd couple’, you know that? :-) All I wear are blue jeans.

Amie: My husband and I lived in the Caribbean for nearly five and a half years.

Sarah: *jealous*

Amie: I was a political science/history major in college.

Sarah: I never went to college. Beyond being a mother and writing, I could never decide what I wanted to ‘do’.

Amie: The first book I ever wrote was a historical pirate romance.

Sarah: I have to read it! The first book I ever wrote was titled ‘My Cat Sneaker’.

Amie: I’m the ‘middle sister’.

Sarah: I’m the baby.

Amie: I love Christmas ornaments and have hundreds I use to decorate my tree each year. Each one is one-of-a-kind.

Sarah: I have hundreds of unique ornaments, also. They just happen to all be Santa.
