Amy Boyles author of Rendered answers five easy questions to
help readers get to know her better.


After living in Chicago, Louisville and New York,
Amy finally settled in North Alabama with her husband. Along with writing, she has
a passion for cooking ridiculously fattening food and complaining about weight gain.
She loves to connect with readers.
What’s your favorite down-home
family style meal?
I’m from the South and
though neither of my parents are from the area, they relocated us here when I was
five. However, it wasn’t until I was well into my twenties that I started eating
the down-home food. My favorite meal, without exception, would have to be Turkey
or Chicken and Cornbread dressing. Dear Lord. If you’ve never had cornbread dressing,
you haven’t lived. Seriously. I’ve made it enough times that I don’t use a recipe
anymore, but if you’ve never made it and you love to eat—find a recipe and try it.
Hopefully, you’ll thank me for the recommendation.
What is your go-to meal
when you dine out?
Dining out? What’s that?
I have a toddler and am expecting another child, so I don’t get to do that anymore!
That question just depresses me. Just kidding. If I remember correctly, my go-to
meal used to be Chicken Tikka Masala at just about any Indian restaurant. I love
it. From what I understand, it’s not an authentic Indian meal, but seriously it’s
so freakin’ good it makes me happy just to think about it. Eating some of that with
warm naan bread and I’m in heaven. At least for the twenty or so minutes it’ll take
me to eat it.
Who is your “book
boyfriend” (that hottie you read about and drool over)?
This is such an easy question!
Hands down, my book boyfriend is Daemon Sadie from Anne Bishop’s The Black Jewels
Trilogy. If you’d asked me this maybe three years ago I would’ve said Richard Rahl
from the Sword of Truth series because there’s something honest in his altruism.
But once I read Daughter
of the Blood and experienced the raw pain and deep suffering of Sadie, I was absolutely
won over. His character undergoes such an incredible arc over the span of that book
—from practically broken and brooding to being someone full of wondrous joy. It’s
an awesome journey to have been a part of. And he’s so sexy! It’s not even overt—he
simply is. Oh! And he’s dangerous, too! I wouldn’t want to cross paths with him.
If you’ve never read the book. Go. Buy. It. Now. Sadie is worth every cent.
Tell us about your favorite
toy as a child.
Ok, so I had this Wonder
Woman doll that I loved. Adored. I also had Wonder Woman underoos (aging myself,
I know) that I wore as a bathing suit. Why? Because I loved them. No, I didn’t care
that they were underwear. They signified Wonder Woman, and that was all that mattered.
Anyhoo, I had this Wonder
Woman doll. Loved her…and then I lost her. I don’t know where. I probably left her
in a store or a bathroom or something. But I remember that I dreamed about getting
another doll because I adored her so much. I dreamt that I received this gift at
Christmas. Funny thing is, I don’t remember if I ever got another doll, all I remember
is I lost her and then dreamed I got her back. Ha! That’s sort of the story of a
romance novel, isn’t it? Two people come together, then something keeps them from
each other and then they wind up together in the end. Amen to that.
When you read for pleasure,
what kind of books do you choose?
I’ll read anything. Mostly.
I read romance—contemporary, historical, whatever catches my eye, but I mainly just
want a great story. Something that takes me for a ride. I think that’s why I read
a lot of fantasy. I want to live in a world and become part of it, learn how the
magic works and be surprised by the twists and turns that great fantasy writers
throw into their novels.
What I don’t read a lot
of is crime/mystery/suspense. Not because I don’t like it, but because I’m not as
familiar with the genre. By all means, if any readers have suggestions for great
books in those categories, throw them my way. I’d love to have more books to fill
my Kindle.

the Book

Title Rendered (A Dark
Revolution Novella – Book Two)
Genre Romance, dystopian
Author Amy Boyles
Book heat level (based
on movie ratings): R
Ten years ago, Drian Becker underwent the Rendering, a humiliating body
exam imposed upon the masses by her father, a commander in the Patriot Army. Being
a high ranking official’s daughter, Drian thought she was safe from the practice—not
so. Her father’s betrayal left her emotionally scarred and dishonored.
It’s now 2098. Drian hasn’t thought about the Rendering since she became
leader of a rebel faction—mostly because she’s an expert at hiding her feelings
behind a thick outer wall of badass attitude.
All that changes when Colvin Hinton walks into her camp. With his easy
swagger and even easier demeanor, Colvin makes being a rebel look good enough to
taste. But when Drian finds herself tangled in his charms she lets down her guard,
giving an old enemy the chance to take her out once and for all.
If loving a man is this dangerous, would Drian have been better off remaining
in the clutches of her father and living with the scars of being Rendered?
