|Amelia Sauter is a writer, cartoonist, martini lounge owner, marketing consultant and musician living with her dynamic partner, their simple-minded dog and their needy old cat near Ithaca, NY. Yes, she really does all those things, and yes, it pretty much makes her crazy. Amelia is a humor columnist and feature writer for the online publication The Ithaca Post. She maintains a cocktail blog ( www.feliciaspeakeasy.com), and a blog about her teardrop trailer adventures with her partner (www.alligatorteardrop.blogspot.com). Amelia is currently penning a humorous memoir, Small Town, Big Cocktails, about leaving a stable social work career to open a wild cocktail lounge, when she didn't even know how the heck to make a gin and tonic. Or maybe she should call it Drink, Work, Sleep. Or Drink, Cry, Drink. That's probably more accurate.
