Interview & Giveaway! The Secret Slipper by Amanda Tero


What is your novel, The Secret Slipper, about?
The Secret Slipper is a dual-story about Raoul, a father who discovers that the daughter he thought was dead ten years ago just might be alive, and Lia, a poor, crippled lass who is under the cruelty of Bioti.

When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer? 
I don’t remember an exact point in which I thought, “I’m going to be a writer.” It just kind of happened. I’ve loved writing since before I was ten.

What would you say is your most interesting writing quirk? 
Hmm… I’m not sure that I have one. At least, not one that is abnormal. Eating M&M’s or other forms of chocolate aren’t exactly quirks. ;)

Where do you like to write? 
I usually write in my study/music studio at my desk. Though for a change at times, I’ll write outside when the weather is nice.

What do you like to do when you're not writing? 
Actually, writing is my side-hobby, so there are many things I do when not writing. Music is a major part of my life. I usually teach between 25-30 piano or violin students each semester (individual private lessons) and on top of that, I love arranging music for solo piano and other instruments. I’m also a part of a big family (eleven siblings; two of which are married), so I enjoy spending time with them.

What is your favorite genre to read and why?
Christian Historical! There is something about the years gone by that engages me as a reader. I also love reading just plain history. :)

What is your least favorite genre to read?
That would probably be dystopian/sci-fi. I’m just not a fan of futuristic. Maybe because I’m not a huge “make-believe” person.

Is there a place you'd like to visit, but haven’t yet? 
Of course! I’d love to visit Europe.

Do you have a favorite Bible verse? 
Proverbs 3:5-7 has kind of been my turn-to verse a lot in the past several years.
Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.

What is your favorite season and why is it your fav?
Fall! I love the weather turning from warm to cool (though we live in Mississippi, so even fall isn’t always cool…)

Some this-or-that questions:

Snowstorms or Thunderstorms? 
Seeing as I’ve never been in a snowstorm, I do enjoy thunderstorms. :)
Chocolate or Vanilla?
Tea or Coffee? 
Depends on my mood. ;) Usually coffee.
Call or Text? 
Cats or Dogs?
Early-bird or Night-owl? 
Night-owl morphing into an early-bird
Introvert or Extrovert?
More introvert.
Facebook or Twitter? 
Mystery or Romance?
Sneakers or Sandals?

Are you currently working on any new novels? If so, could you give us a hint? 
I sure am! My current WIP is Journey of Choice which follows the life of a boy named Nat. He is a New York street orphan, caught by the police mid-robbery and transported west via the Orphan Trains—at the brink of the Civil War. So there is some street story, some farm, and some war.
Thank you so much for being here! Is there anything else you’d like to tell readers and where can we find you on the web?
