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 (but I live in the landlocked state of Tennessee).
  • I have seen every episode of Star Trek (except Discovery) and am always up for talking Trek.
  • Officially a Hufflepuff, but more of a Huffleclawdor.
  • I majored in TV production in college but have somehow ended up in the accounting field.
