Creator Month: Body Positive Romance Author Amity Lassiter

“Who you are today is a valid and important part of the journey of your life. Please meet that person and welcome them, they are a foundation of who you are, even if you are not always in this exact body as this exact person. Your body is not a signal of your moral value or worth in society, and you deserve goodness and happiness as much as the next person does.” Β» Amity Lassiter

Today’s interview is with @amitylassiter.

Here’s how she describes herself:

I live in New Brunswick, Canada, on a multi-generational hobby farm with my parents, my husband, and my young son, as well as a flock of sheep, a herd of goats, too many herding dogs, several barn cats, and my three horses.

I’ve loved telling stories my whole life and could even be found telling them into a tape recorder in my grandmother’s basement before I could write them. They always included kissing!

I strive to write real, sincere characters that exemplify the small-town sense of community and family I grew up in.
