About

My name is Amy, and I write character-driven stories for young adults (both in age and in heart) set in the present or the future. I believe in and write about nice guys, young love, faith, family, and hope. A few other things you might want to know about me:

  • My husband and I started dating when we were 17.
  • We have a cat named Callie Bear.
  • I would almost always rather be at the beach.
  • I have seen every episode of Star Trek and am always up for talking Trek.

    • The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins
    • The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
    • The Start of Me and You by Emery Lord
    • The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
