The Most Unique Interview I’ve Ever Done: Meghan Trainor

Wednesday, April 12th, 2017

The May 2017 issue of Cosmpolitan features my sit-down cover interview with the awesome, talented, interesting, warm, funny, cool singer, performer and songwriter Meghan Trainor, who is just the cutest. I’ve interviewed her before (here’s my last chat with her for Seventeen magazine)

Here’s the story on Cosmo‘s site: Meghan Trainor Living Out Loud.

Why was it unique? Because Meghan was on vocal rest for an upcoming vocal cord surgery, which meant she couldn’t actually, like, speak—instead, Meghan typed on her laptop’s Notes app, while her also awesome bestie assistant JoJo translated for her. Anyway, it was such a fun one.

The issue is on stands now.

Lauren Conrad’s Happiness Secrets

Friday, March 13th, 2015

This month, I had a sit-down with reality show star turned fashion and lifestyle maven, Lauren Conrad for the cover story in the April 2015 issue of Redbook magazine. We met at the offices of one of her fashion businesses in L.A., Paper Crown, and she was down to earth, super cool and really funny. Check out the full story “Lauren’t Un-Perfect Life” in the issue, on stands now. Or grab a little taste here at Redbook.com.

Some of Lauren’s wise insights were picked up by other publications, and this tidbit about being more kind in the workplace was one of my favorites (here’s how Cosmopolitan wrote about it).

And now back to my regularly scheduled envy of her style.

The Half-Orange is Still Buzzing!

Thursday, February 18th, 2010

I’ve been so busy lately working to get the word out on my book, Meeting Your Half-Orange (buy it here on Amazon.com!) and you can see all the reviews and press the book has gotten at the Meeting Your Half-Orange News & Reviews page. Some of the best lately:

On Saturday, February 13th, I appeared on the CBS Early Show with Chris and Erica, along with authors Lori Gottlieb (“Marry Him”) and Anna David (“Bought”) to talk about whether settling is a wise move for women looking for love. My take? Nuh-uh, no way. I’m working on getting that interview up on my site.

Glamour magazine featured a 2-page story on the book, the first page of which is here (to see the second, pick up the magazine’s March 2010 issue!):

Cosmopolitan U.K. magazine also wrote about the book in their February 2010 issue:

And during a major radio media tour the week of February 9th, I’ve uploaded two of the shows I appeared on, which you can listen to here: The Dating Optimist: Amy on the Radio.

Of course you can keep up with more about the book on its website meetingyourhalforange.com, and get a daily dose of positivity at my site TheDatingOptimist.com. But the greatest joy comes, of course, from reading the book itself. Duh. 🙂
