Crossroads Tour: Amy Brecount White

If your book was turned into a movie who would you cast and why?
I would want Laurel to be a complete unknown, because she has to be unaffected and a little overwhelmed by it all. For Ms. Suarez, I’d love to have someone like Salma Hayek, just maybe a little older. And for Spinster Spenser, you’d need a classical type actress. I’m not very good at this ….

What are some monsters or legends that scared you as a kid?
The flying monkeys from The Wizard of Oz were pretty freaky. UFO’s were big when I was growing up. The idea of people being abducted and carried off was scary too.

The flying monkeys freaked me out too! What does magic mean to you?
I definitely believe in flower magic. If flowers didn’t add something special and magical to our lives, why would we include them at nearly all celebrations?! It’s fascinating to me. Scientific studies have shown that having flowers in your life can lift your mood for days! That’s a kind of magic, isn’t it?!

Scarlet poppies for your Halloween, Amber!!

Aww thanks, Amy! *whispers* I hope that's something good. 




Will someone ask her how she gained all her flower knowledge? I'm sure she wouldn't send you anything bad! You're promoting her book. It's bad karma to do that! Good questions.

Sending this one of to my sister. I think she would like this.

Scarlet poppies are on my cover and are for "fantastic extravagance!" Seemed appropriate for a fun Halloween season, although I usually eat too much chocolate for days ....

Heather, I did lots of research!! There are bunches of books on the language of flowers. I read them and tried to find the most common meanings for flowers and herbs that are relatively easy to find.

I think unknown actors are good for books turned into movies. I don't want to see Miley Cyrus in every movie.

Forget-Her-Nots is totally on my TBR list. Love the cover. The flying monkeys really freaked me out as well. Now I'll have nightmares about them. At first I thought you were sending poppies to make her sleepy like in the Wizard of Oz, lol! Great interview!
