I write about demons, magic potions, and girls who graffiti.


Amy has dreamed of being an author since her 9th grade English teacher read her short story aloud to the class and she witnessed the power of the written word. The bell rang and no one moved. Thankfully, her dad talked her out of the starving artist career plan. She now works as a software engineer in Virginia, where she devours books of all genres. Amy is working toward traditional publication of her YA fantasy and paranormal novels, and loves connecting with bookish people.
