Amy Lamare is a Los Angeles based writer, editor, blogger and football fanatic who writes the well known and popular football blog GridironGoddess.net. As a sportswriter and football picking savant, she’s been a guest on KROQ 106.7fm’s Kevin and Bean show in Los Angeles and on the morning show on The Hawk 103.9fm in Toronto. She went 168-82 during the 2007 NFL regular season. That’s better than Mike Ditka did.
For 8 ½ years Amy wrote movie reviews and articles about the Film Industry for the Hollywood Stock Exchange. Two of her finest moments were when the New York Times Carpetbagger blog linked to her review of King Kong and when Charles Nelson Reilly’s website linked to her review of his amazing one man show/documentary The Life of Reilly. Amy is pretty sure the only time her Mom understood what she did for a living was when the NY Times link happened. Then Candice Lamare called everyone she knows to brag. But she still called HSX, HFX, and continues to do that to this day. It is part of her charm.
With 16 years experience working in Hollywood, Amy can talk the talk and walk the walk with the best of them. A master spin artist, she recently launched her celeb site TheSnarkstress.com and though it is getting off to a slow start, that is only because she is so focused on working on her memoir Ripping Off The Bandaid.
GridironGoddess.net begins its 3rd season of NFL and College Football coverage in July 2009. Amy expects to be a guest on The Hawk this season as well as establish other radio contacts as fall approaches.
Amy studied Creative Writing, Art and French at the University of Southern California. Amy was born in Chicago, grew up in Las Vegas and has also lived in Los Angeles and San Diego. She is an avid traveler who tries to make at least one trip outside of the U.S. (preferably outside of North America) every year. One of her life goals is to visit every Caribbean Island. She’s doing well at this goal having been to Antigua and Barbuda, Anguilla and St. Martin, St. Thomas, St. John, Tortola, Jost Van Dyke and Aruba.
Amy’s family and friends are a very important part of her life and nothing would make them happier than seeing Amy’s books get written and published. She’s grateful to have such an awesome support system.
