Meet Amy

A Philly girl at heart though I’ve lived all over and if you ask me if I miss San Diego I will say yes. I am well-traveled: my favorite places to visit besides San Diego are Colorado and D.C, but I’ll go anywhere that has a beach. (I lived 20 mins North of Detroit too, ask me how I enjoyed it sometime.) When not traveling, I spend a lot of time in my office. While there I write quippy, dialogue-heavy Women’s Fiction, humorous Sci-Fi with talking robot dogs, and Magical Realism (Fantasy) based on Irish folklore. All together I have five novels in progress but that means I am keeping two a secret from you. I wrote and self-published a few volumes of poetry in my previous life as an academic. I am now a staunch advocate for DIY education, so I am happy to float into the role of Tech Fairy at DIYMFA. When not in my office I am hanging with my awesome tech-hubby, stepson, and RubyCat. I was published alongside other poets in Poets Digest’s Prompted and I am an advocate for literacy and step-momming.
