Ten Things about Amy Ruttan

Just ten? I hope I can come up with ten exciting things about my life, but I’m not positive. ;) I think my life is pretty ordinary, but hopefully my ten things are pretty interesting and maybe you’d like to tell me some interesting things about you. I’m always interested in other people.

  1. I was supposed to be born on St. Patrick’s Day, but was a born a month late and arrived Easter Sunday in April. I say April because sometimes Easter occurs in March. LOL!

  1. I love everything British and mostly the comedies. Monty Python, Vicar of Dibley, Carry On movies. Love it all. Also love Downton and Call the Midwife. I’m a total anglophile.

  1. I always wanted to write for Harlequin, but I kind of stumbled upon Medicals during the 2010 Fast Track. It took a couple of years with revising and making it through the slush before I was bought Jan 25, 2013, but it was worth it. I’ve learned so much writing for Harlequin.

  1. I love car trips. My aim is to drive to all the provinces and States that I can. Obviously this will be impossible for Hawaii and Nunavut. My list for Provinces has become quite shorter. I only have Newfoundland, Northwest Territories, Yukon and Nunavut left to see. Lots of States still, but I’m getting there.

  1. I’ve been to the top of a mountain. This is a huge deal for me because I’m TERRIFIED of heights, but in 2012 I conquered my fear and went up Whistler’s in Jasper National Park.

  1. I’ve had my foot in every single great lake thanks to my family’s cross country trip to Alberta in 2012. Yep, I’ve been in Ontario, Erie, Huron, Superior and Michigan. Word of advice. Superior is COLD.

  1. I’m addicted to Diet Coke. Though I’m working on it, because it’s not very good for you, but instead of chain smoking or drinking like all the classical writers of yore, when I’m working on a deadline I start chugging it back. It’s a bad, bad habit.

  1. I’m terrified of sharks, but in San Francisco I sucked up my fear and touched one. I guess I’m all for trying to overcome fears. Having three kids helped me conquer my fear of needles that’s for sure!

  1. I knew my husband was the one the first time I met him. I know people don’t believe in that usually, but I knew the moment I met him.

  1. I love the badlands and the prairies. Never thought I would, but my trip out west in 2012 through South Dakota, Wyoming and Montana made me fall madly and deeply in love with those wild, wide landscapes.

And those are ten things about me that are totally random and hopefully not a dreadful bore!
