Meet the Author: Buffy Andrews

Monday, November 11, 2013

I'm so excited to be hosting a fellow Carina UK author on the blog... take it away Buffy!


Meet my colleague Buffy Andrews. She is an author, blogger, journalist and social media maven.

By day, she’s a journalist, leading an award-winning staff at the York Daily Record/Sunday News (York, Pennsylvania, USA), where she is Assistant Managing Editor of Features and Niche Publications and social media coordinator.

By night, she’s an author, writing women’s fiction, young adult and middle grade.

In addition to her writing blog, Buffy’s Write Zone, she maintains a social media blog, Buffy's World.  She is also a newspaper and magazine columnist and writes middle-grade, young adult and women's fiction. Check out her author page.

She lives in southcentral Pennsylvania with her husband, Tom; two sons, Zach and Micah; and wheaten cairn terrier Kakita.

Buffy’s latest book:


Our lives are often connected in ways we never would have imagined...

Two babies; two very different upbringings. 


First there is Sarah: raised by her loving grandmother, but neglected by her own father who views her as the instrument of her mother’s death. She will lead a hard life, searching to belong and to be loved.

Then there is Olivia, surrounded by love, nurtured and adored by her parents, a golden child with a golden future.

When Sarah’s life is cut tragically short and she is assigned to record the moments of Olivia’s life as her Moment Keeper, their lives become intertwined.

Sarah is able to overcome the heartbreak of her own lost years and Olivia is able to deal with a future that isn’t nearly as golden as what she had planned – or is it?

Five quick questions

Q. What do you do when you need to think or are stuck in your writing?
A. I run. For some reason it frees my mind and I often find that it provides the clarity and direction I need.  

Q. Are you one of those people who stop writing while you know what’s coming next?
A. Absolutely. Just like Hemingway. Does it always work out? No. But it’s what I aim for.

Q. First person or third?
A. It depends. I write in both. And sometimes, as in The Yearbook Series, I write alternating POVs.

Q. Coffee or tea?
A. Coffee -- a lot of it!

Q. What are you most proud of?
A. My sons and the fine young men they have become.
