Amy writes fantasy and light science fiction for young readers and the young at heart. She is the author of the World of Aluvia series and SHORTCUTS (CBAY Books, 2019), for grades 4 and up. She is also a former reading teacher and school librarian who has written over 250 articles, short stories, and poems for state standardized reading tests.
As an Army kid, she moved eight times before she was eighteen, so she feels especially fortunate to be married to her high school sweetheart. Together they are raising two daughters in San Antonio.
A perfect day for Amy involves rain pattering on the windows, popcorn, and every member of her family curled up in one cozy room reading a good book.
"Sometimes the best way to learn something is by doing it wrong and looking at what you did."-- Neil Gaiman
