Sitting Down with Amanda Hickie: Author of Before This Is Over @AmandaHickie @littlebrown

A few months ago, I stumbled across a book that completely creeped me out.   I have always been a fan of apocalyptic and pandemic stories, so when I read the synopsis for Before This is Over, I was more than thrilled (in case you missed it, my review for this one is HERE).   Upon further investigation, I found out that the premise for this novel was inspired by the events of the SARS outbreak in Toronto when the author was living in Canada with her family. I thought that was incredibly interesting, not only because I am Canadian, but also because I can remember this event and the hysteria during this time.   Hickie does a brilliant job at capturing this feeling throughout the pages of her novel.

So, needless to say, I am thrilled to have Amanda Hickie, author of Before This Is Over, on Clues and Reviews today!

Keep reading to see what Amanda Hickie had to say about her novel, the writing process and life in general!
