About The Author

Amy Clipston has been writing for as long as she can remember. Her fiction writing “career” began in elementary school when she and a close friend wrote and shared silly stories. She has a degree in communications from Virginia Wesleyan College and is a member of the Authors Guild, American Christian Fiction Writers, and Romance Writers of America. She is the author of the bestselling Kauffman Amish Bakery series with Zondervan, which is part of HarperCollins Christian Publishing.

An advocate for organ and blood donation, Amy donated a kidney in 2011 at Johns Hopkins Hospital. Through her donation, her husband received a second kidney transplant. Amy and her husband matched another couple and swapped kidneys with them. Amy’s memoir, A Gift of Love, will be available in early 2014. She hopes her story inspires others to become organ and blood donors. Amy lives in North Carolina with her husband, two sons, mother, and four spoiled rotten cats.

My Interview With The Author

Bree

Hi Amy, I am pulling up a chair to settle in at the table with you today. A place at the table is the theme for this interview and I would love to know more about what goes at your table.What is your family’s favorite dinner?

Amy Clipston

One of our favorites is my mother’s sauerbraten, which I always request on my birthday. We also enjoy having breakfast for dinner, such as eggs, pancakes, or French toast.

Bree

Yum, my daughter loves to eat pancakes anytime of the day, and those I successfully cook, but do have some fails when I try a new dish sometimes. What would your husband say is your best and worst cook attempts?

Amy Clipston

Joe would say my best was Parmesan chicken. He says I once tried to make a roast when we were living in our first house, and it turned out as a disaster. I don’t remember this, but he insists we laughed about it.

Bree

Food and laughter go hand in hand. What’s something you have wanted to cook but fear cooking?

Amy Clipston

I wish I had more time to bake. I’d love to try more Amish recipes, such as whoopie pies or pretzels, but I really don’t have time.

Bree

Me too! Amish food is comfort food for me. Okay my food wanting stomach is calling to me so we will end this lovely chat with one more question. Would you rather follow a recipe to make dinner or make up your own recipe?

Bree

Thanks Amy for stopping by and chatting about sitting at your family’s table. It was fun!

Amy Clipston

Since my schedule is crazy, I’d rather follow a recipe. I’m not very courageous or experienced when it comes to cooking.
