Guest Post from Author Amy Vastine


Thanks so much for hosting me on your blog today! I’ve come here to confess a secret …Romance wasn’t always my number one choice when I picked up a book to read.

I know. How can that be? I write romance, shouldn’t I love reading it? I do. Now. But when I was young, I loved all things mystery. I was a huge John Grisham fan. I loved scary stories and crime dramas. My goal was always to figure out the ending before I read the last page. But one summer, I was visiting my family’s lake house. My aunt is a voracious reader and buys books by the armful when she goes to Walmart. This particular summer, there was a stack of books that my aunt had read and left behind on the side table in the family room . One of those books was A Bend in the Road by Nicholas Sparks. Mind you, I had no idea who Nicholas Sparks was. I hadn’t even heard of The Notebook! (I know, GASP!) I spent the entire weekend devouring this romance (he calls his books “love stories” not romance – but whatever). From there on, I was hooked. I wanted the romance in my mysteries and dramas. I ventured into some Young Adult romances and even some paranormal, but the love story in any genre is what keeps me reading.

This is one of the things I love about writing for Heartwarming. The books are more than just romance – they’re about family and drama – but the romance takes center stage. The reader is hopefully rooting for the couple to find their happy ever after by the end.

I am so excited that Heartwarming books are now available at Walmart, so some lucky girl can go visit her aunt and possibly stumble across one of MY books and fall in love!



Amy Vastine has been plotting stories in her head for as long as she can remember. An eternal optimist, she studied social work, hoping to teach others how to find their silver lining. Now, she enjoys creating happily ever afters for all to read. Amy lives outside Chicago with her high school sweetheart-turned-husband, three fun-loving children, and their sweet but mischievous puppy dog.
