Amy Lane dodges an EDJ, mothers four children, and writes the occasional book. She, her brood, and her beloved mate, Mack, live in a crumbling mortgage in Citrus Heights, California, which is riddled with spiders, cats, and more than its share of fancy and weirdness. Feel free to visit her at www.greenshill.com orwww.writerslane.blogspot.com, where she will ride the buzz of receiving your e-mail until her head swells and she can no longer leave the house. ...more

I'm following it up with an original Christmas story, and then I'll be writing a standalone story about a boy falling in love with his best friend's brother before going off to become famous. After that I've got something light and paranormal, followed by my next Dreamspun Desire series, Search and Rescue. So, lots of new and a little bit of old--all fun!(less)

It took me a bit to figure out what he was really about, and then it was SO SIMPLE. For the previous two books, the guys have all been Clopper. It was that simple-- my guys were the dog. Finn, with his puppyish enthusiasm, Adam with his feet splayed against any change, Derek with his patience, Rico with cautious, strong acceptance-- all of the guys were some aspect of Clopper.

Miguel is the dog. But Ezra is Jake. Ezra is Jake the cat. You pick him up and put him in a new place, and he just sort of curls up and sees if anything is going to eat him. And when something hurts him, he lashes out (witness how he "broke away" from his home life). It was fun writing it-- but Lollipop is a little longer than the other books, and it's because writing about dogs and dogs is really fast paced. My dogs roll around the house like a hurricane. But writing about cats and dogs requires a little more care. (less)

When I was young and stupid--literally 1986--one of the entitled young white men in my mostly white junior college had the bright idea that we should "protest something." All of the great protests--civil rights, women's rights, anti-war--all those happened in the sixties, he argued. We were missing out on the opportunity to protest something in the 80's. So, we protested a fountain that needed to

You need to know that when I say it, when I ask you to say it, it's because my lungs feel full of dark water, and seeing it or writing it lets me breathe.”

“William: What's your nickname?
Maddox: I do not have one.

“I will love you forever,” I murmured, and he stroked the hair off of my forehead.
I will hold you to that.” His face was grim and his voice was sober—he
touched my handprint of chaos as he said it, and I knew in my bones that it was a solemn vow, and not a sweet or a kind offering of love at all. Green would make me live if he had to crack the foundations of the world.”
Amy Lane, Rampant

“You’re here!” She repeated, wrapping her arms around his neck and her legs
around his hips. He’d dropped his bags as she’d ran, and now he cupped her bottom in his large hands...His heart gave a giant thump, all the way down from his chest to his stomach,
and as she smiled up at him he lowered his head and devoured her mouth,
smile and all. Her lips were just as warm, and just as soft as he remembered, and her mouth tasted like peaches and cinnamon and Corinne Carol-Anne and without thought he pushed her back against the hallway wall and kissed her and kissed her and kissed her as though all their time apart would disappear in that frantic mating of tongue and lips and teeth. He wanted to take her into himself, all of her, and keep her warm and safe and happy, just like this moment when she
burst with joy, just to see him.
--Wounded
(Green and Cory, after being apart)”

“I didn't have time to tell Bracken to care for her. I didn't have time to tell Arturo that I knew why he was hard on me, and it was okay. I didn't have time to tell Green that he was the sun and the moon and the stars. The Goddess gave me just enough time to feel her pain, to let her know I loved her. I had just long enough to say goodbye.”

I love my dedicated readers! (Much better than "fan" I've always thought ;-) And if you're in the Sacramento area, check out our readings at the Lavender Library--we give one every three months or so, so there should be one in December-- there's an author's group that meets there for cookies and books :-) Thanks so much for reading!

Scott I have enjoyed your writing for quite a few years and am still working my way through your extensive library of work. I hate the term "fan" because it derives from "fanatic", and that's a bit much. You are a favorite artist of mine, no question. I also delight in the fact that you set much of your work in the Sacramento area, which is also where I live. It's nice to picture the familiar places in my mind when I am reading. I don't know you but I always think about you and your knitting in your craptastic mansion every time I am in Citrus Heights! Keep on keeping on!
Your non-fan admirer,
Raven.
